Simple Vietnamese Pork Noodle Bowl

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 35 minutes
Servings: 6

FOR ROASTS, CHOPS and TENDERLOINS

Cook to 145 F with 3 minute rest

Ingredients

1 1/4 pound pork tenderloin, trimmed and cut into 1/4-inch slices
12 ounces rice noodles, *
4 cups coleslaw mix, prepared*
1/4 red onion, thinly sliced
4 1/2 cups chicken broth, reduced-sodium
4 1/2 teaspoons fish sauce, *
1 teaspoon soy sauce, reduced-sodium
2 tablespoons canola oil, or other neutral-flavored oil
1/4 cup basil leaves, fresh, thinly sliced
1 lime, cut into 6 wedges

Cooking Directions

Prepare the noodles according to package directions. Arrange the noodles in 6 serving bowls. Top with the slaw mix and onion and set aside.
While the noodles are cooking, in a medium saucepan, combine the chicken broth, fish sauce, and soy sauce and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to very low, to keep the broth just below a simmer.
In a very large skillet over medium-high heat, warm the oil. Add the pork and cook until browned and pork reaches an internal temperature of 145 degrees F., 1 to 2 minutes per side (you may have to do this in batches). Let stand at room temperature for three minutes. Arrange the pork on top of the noodle bowls.
Ladle in the piping-hot broth, garnish with the basil and lime wedges, and serve.

* You can find rice noodles and fish sauce in the ethnic or Asian section of most major supermarkets. You can find prepared slaw mix, typically a combination of green cabbage, red cabbage, and carrot, in the produce section of most major supermarkets.

Serving Suggestions

You can vary this pho-inspired noodle bowl by changing the vegetables and garnishes—try thinly sliced mushrooms, thinly sliced bell peppers or chiles, bean sprouts, cilantro or mint leaves, scallions, or crushed red pepper flakes. If you like, serve additional fish sauce and soy sauce, plus chili sauce, at the table—so guests can adjust the bowls to their tastes.

Buying, Handling & Storage Tips

Sealed, prepacked fresh pork cuts can be kept in the refrigerator 2 to 4 days.  If you do plan on keeping the raw, fresh pork longer than 2 to 3 days before cooking it, store it well-wrapped in the freezer.

Butcher's Tips

Pork tenderloin makes an elegant entrée for a small dinner party but also can be roasted or grilled whole for quick weeknight dinner. When sliced crosswise (like a loaf of French bread), the resulting medallions also may be sautéed.
