Roast Pork & Almond Sauce over Noodles

August 5, 2012

Been trying to cook some healthy options and I’ll be posting a few I’ve found that are really good.  We had grilled up a pork tenderloin and had leftover pork.  So I used that pork with this recipe.  Super quick and easy since the pork was already cooked.  I’m sure their way is super tasty too.

1/2 pound pork tenderloin
8 oz uncooked pasta (I used a whole grain angel hair)
1/4 cup almond butter
2 1/2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
1 1/2 teaspoons chili garlic sauce
1 cup thinly sliced green onions

For the pork, you can do what they did or what I did.  We grilled up a pork tenderloin the day before and only ate half.  I took the other half and cut into thin strips and heated in the oven at 350 for 5-10 minutes or until warm.

While cooking the pasta, you can start making the sauce.  Mix all ingredients together and once pasta is done, add 2 tablespoons of the pasta water.  Top each bowl of pasta with pork, sauce and sprinkle some sliced green onions.  Serves about 4.

Note, I was worried that our pork tenderloin was pre-seasoned with lemon and garlic and would make the dish taste funny.  It did not.  It was crazy delicious and maybe more enjoyable since this whole process took practically no time when you don’t have to cook the pork.

Here’s a crappy picture of the tasty dish:
