Pork Kim Chee Shirataki Noodles!

If you've been on a low carb diet or Weight Watchers, you've most likely heard of Shirataki Noodles.  Known as the "miracle noodle" these babies have 0-3 grams of carbs, 0-20 calories, no cholesterol, sugar free, gluten and dairy free! These noodles are made of konnyaku (a member of the yam family) a water soluable high fiber substance.  My favorite is the Tofu Shirataki Noodle, since I like the texture a lot more than just the konnyaku noodle. 

These noodles are great in soups and stir frys, but to be honest I don't love them as Italian pasta dishes.  But, if you want to try them, Hungry Girl's website has a ton of recipes.  I have also been trying to eat a lot more veggies, so these noodles are a great way to incorporate them into a meal.

Pork Kim Chee Shirataki Noodles

1 pkg Tofu Shirataki Noodles
0.5 lbs pork, sliced paper thin
2 cup baby bok choy
1.5 cups bean sprouts
0.5 cups sliced mushrooms
0.5 cups water
1 cup kim chee
2 Tbsp Kim Chee base
1 tsp sesame seed oil
1 Tbsp soy sauce
5 stalks mira (or green onions)

Prep:  Rinse Shirataki Noodles well several times (there will be a stinky smell- so don't skip this step!).  Microwave the noodles for one minute and blot with a paper towel.  *This will help get rid of the weird odor you will smell when you open the bag*

1.  Heat large skillet or wok on medium to high heat.  Add in bok choy, bean sprouts and mushrooms to pan and pour 1/2 cup of water into pan and cook vegetables.  Cook and let water start to evaporate from pan.

2.   Push veggies to perimiter of the pan and add 1 Tbsp of Kim Chee base, 1 tsp sesame seed oil and 1 Tbsp soy sauce to the middle of the pan.  Add in thinly sliced pork.  *If you don't use paper thin pork, cook pork beforehand in a seperate pan.*  Mix sauce, veggies and pork until pork is completely cooked.

3.  Add in chopped kim chee, Shirataki noodles and other Tbsp of Kim Chee base.  Mix until noodles are heated through and evenly coated with sauce. 

Makes 2-3 servings

Not only is this super low cal, but it is also super filling!  Some people do not like the "different" texture of the Shirtaki Noodles but with all the different veggies textures I don't even notice!
