- 1/2 cup peanut butter creamy
- 1/4 cup seasoned rice vinegar
- 2 Tablespoons fish sauce
- 1/4 Cup coconut milk
- 8 ounces Pad Thai Noodles
- 1 tablespoon Asian sesame oil
- 1 pound ground pork browned
- 2 jalapeños stemmed, seeded and sliced into thin rounds
- 2 medium carrots grated
- 2 cups green cabbage very thin sliced
- 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
- 1/4 cup starchy water from cooked noodles
- Cilantro for garnish
- Lime wedges for serving
In a large bowl, whisk the peanut butter, vinegar, fish sauce, sesame oil, coconut milk until smooth. Set aside. Use a large bowl, because you're going to add vegetables, pork and noodles later.
Heat a fry pan over medium high heat. Add the ground pork and cook, stirring to break up the meat. Cook until cooked through. Set aside.
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the Pad Thai noodles and cook, stirring often, until just tender, about 5 minutes or according to package directions. Reserve 1/4 cup of the starchy water before draining noodles.
Add the drained noodles, pork, jalapeños, carrots, cabbage, and toss gently with the peanut sauce. Add the reserved starchy pasta water and red pepper flakes stir well.
Garnish with cilantro and serve with lime wedges on the side.
