This was an amazing recipe with incredible flavors!!! To authenticate; I added 1/4 c. More peanut butter, 1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes & tsp. of garlic powder. I also crushed 1/3 c. Salted peanuts sprinkled over finished dish. So so good. Amazing flavor profile!
The noodles were TERRIBLE, and it was not because I didn't follow the instructions. The peanut butter taste was over-bearing and just WEIRD with the noodles! The pork had a decent taste. I will NEVER make this again. Yuck, yuck, yuck.
Thought I would try but do not eat pork and Thais rarely use such large amounts of any meat except chicken or fish unless cooking for more than one person. I lived in Thailand for 15 years and now visit for about 4 months of the year. This is not a Thai nor Thai inspired. They do not use brown sugar but palm sugar and usually only use peanut butter with a satay type recipe. Pity I have to any rating as it is really a zero.
Thanx all. 'nuf sed.

ok i hear the other reviewers, this is not the most inspired recipe, but it's easy and cheap and actually tasty, really good for breaking in kids to spicy foods.
I would love to try this but looking at all the sodium.. can't!
Worst recipe ever. Sorry...I'm a pretty good cook, and I love Thai food, especially peanut noodles. The noodles were worse than dog food. The pork was so-so, but at least tender. This is the lowest review I've ever given on the internet.
Pork was delicious-I felt like a dog eating peanut butter with the noodles-sticky texture
Used pork tenderloin because that is what I had. For the noodles used chicken stock and some of the pasta water. Garnished with chopped red cabbage and chopped cucumber. Very enjoyable
