Sesame-Ginger Pork with Soba Noodles

Sesame-Ginger Pork with Soba Noodles (Adapted from Robin Miller)

8 ounces dry soba noodles
2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil, divided
1 tablespoon minced pickled ginger
1 1/4 pound trimmed pork tenderloin, cut into 1" chunks
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
3 green onions, chopped
1 tablespoon sesame seeds, toasted
1 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup sliced water chestnuts, drained
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves

In a large pot of boiling salted water, add soba noodles and cook according to the package directions. Drain well and set aside.

Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add ginger - cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Raise heat to medium-high - add pork, and cook, stirring, until browned on all sides, about 5 to 6 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in the scallions and sesame seeds - cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the broth and soy sauce - reduce heat to medium and simmer until the pork is cooked through, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the water chestnuts - toss mixture with the noodles and sprinkle with cilantro to serve.

Makes about 4 servings.
