Welcome to 2017! This is the first post I am writing in the new year. My son has been off of school until yesterday, so I was spending time with him and enjoying some time off. Now it is back to work, and back to the kitchen. I took almost 3 weeks and just made whatever food I wanted, and didn’t photograph a thing. It was kind of crazy.

I have to say, coming back with an Asian Noodle Bowl is kind of perfect. It is great comfort food for these cold nights, plus all the flavors are exactly what you need to get through the week. Garlic Beef Noodle Bowls have been crazy popular on the blog, so I decided to make something similar with pork, and mix up the sauce a little. Although a straight out swap for beef and pork in both of these recipes would be amazing. Like Mongolian Beef, so fast and easy!

This is my last recipe in my partnership with Crisco. I am sad to see it end, I am a huge fan of Crisco products. I have baked with their shortening in my chocolate chip cookies since I was a kid. And the canola oil is perfect in my son’s favorite chocolate chip muffins. Which I just had to make a double batch of yesterday, so he would have a stocked freezer for back to school mornings.

The first recipe I made for Crisco was Meatball Sub Egg Rolls. They would make a great addition to your Super Bowl party, check them out! Super fun idea. And then we had Grasshopper Brownies in December. My all time favorite brownie recipe topped with mint frosting and chocolate ganche, pure heaven.

So today a quick and easy dinner is in store. With people trying to eat healthier for the new year, homemade meals are a must. I am kind of obsessed with udon noodles, but you can use whatever you have (even spaghetti) for these Asian Noodle Bowls. The sauce looks like a lot of ingredients, but I think you will have most of them in your pantry already. Just mix them together while the pork is cooking, and you are good to go.

We love Asian flavors in our house, and these noodle bowls are no exception. They are slightly sweet, tangy, and a little bit spicy. You can make them a lot spicy or a little, that is totally up to you. Plus the leftovers are great for lunch the next day. Or cold by the light of the fridge, no judgement here!

So get out those chopsticks (or a fork, whatever) and mix up these Asian Noodle Bowls for dinner, your family will thank you!
