with pork and shiitake mushrooms
This noodle-based stir-fry with pork and vegetables gets bold flavor and its bright color thanks to the addition of mild curry powder.

Really easy and delicious!0 Helpful
Great recipe, toddlers loved it. Easy to make once the pork is defrosted. I did it a second time with chicken instead and chopped up the mushrooms really small. Made sure all the vegetables were tender. And the toddlers gobbled it all up. My husband loved this too. This will be a staple recipe for us.0 Helpful
Really liked this one- it didn't need a lot of sauce, and was still flavorful. I used mostly spice powder on the pork with a dash or two of red curry. Bumped up the pasta slightly to 8 oz. and used a stirfry veg medley.0 Helpful
It was an easy meal and loaded with veggies0 Helpful
Absolutely delicious! Even better than I expected! Doubled the sauce as others recommended, left out mushrooms and sirracha, and let it cook together for a couple min after adding the noodles to soften them. I would say this is really a 3 serving meal.0 Helpful
The rice noodle package direction said to soak and then add to stirfry but they felt a little underdone. Stick with the boil0 Helpful
