This ridiculously easy Pork Ramen Stir Fry is loaded with veggies, plenty of noodles, and the best stir-fry sauce! Kid-friendly and picky eater approved! Try some of our other favorite ramen dishes like this General Tso Ramen, Ground Beef Ramen, or Chicken Ramen. Pork Ramen Stir Fry This recipe came about when I went to make my kids’ favorite weeknight meal (this Udon Stir Fry) and realized I was not only out of ground turkey, but also out of udon noodles! With some ground pork in the fridge (leftover from these Banh Mi Bowls) and ramen in the pantry, I whipped together this Pork Ramen Stir Fry. While the kids were a little disappointed at first to find out we weren’t having the udon noodles, they quickly changed their minds after one bite of this ramen! This easy pork stir-fry with noodles is the perfect simple weeknight meal — picky-eater, kid, and adult approved! Shortcut Prep Ideas For This Pork Ramen Stir Fry My whole goal with this recipe is to ensure it’s fairly quick to make. Here are some ideas to shorten the prep even more. Use frozen veggies that don’t require any prep time. We love shelled edamame and corn — all cook super fast and require no prep beforehand. If you’re using other frozen veggies (like frozen broccoli, for example), you may need to chop them down a bit before adding to the stir fry. This will obviously increase prep time. Use store-bought shortcuts. Don’t want to do any chopping? Pick up some already chopped green onions from the produce section of your store along with refrigerated garlic paste and refrigerated minced garlic. OR try Dorot’s® garlic and ginger cubes. They have crushed garlic and crushed ginger that you can keep handy in the freezer and pop into these (and other) recipes when needed. (Check if your local store carries them; they’re typically found with frozen veggies in the grocery store.) Make the Pork Ramen Stir Fry sauce ahead of time. Not a shortcut per se, but if you make the sauce ahead of time and have it in the fridge ready to go, come dinnertime, this dish comes together that much quicker! Ground Pork Ramen Stir Fry Ingredients: Below are the main ingredients (excluding the sauce). Ground pork: We like ground pork best for flavor, but ground beef, ground chicken, or ground turkey will all work well in this recipe. Green onion, garlic, & ginger: I wouldn’t recommend leaving out any of these ingredients — they form a robust flavor base! Frozen shelled edamame: Edamame is sold fresh or frozen in the store, but I typically use the frozen shelled soybeans since it’s hard for me to find fresh in my area. Don’t worry about thawing or boiling beforehand– they cook perfectly from frozen! Frozen corn: If you’d rather not get extra veggies for this Pork Ramen Stir Fry, replace the corn with more edamame. Alternatively, add in a different veggie like frozen peas & carrots or frozen (coarsely chopped) broccoli. Ramen noodles: Discard the seasoning packets (or save for another recipe) and just use the noodles. You can also use chow mein noodles instead of ramen; just make sure to have the right amount — 9 ounces is perfect for this Pork Ramen Stir Fry. Sauce Ingredients The sauce truly makes this Pork Ramen Stir Fry outstanding, and it’s as easy as whisking everything together in a small bowl. Below I’ve listed the individual ingredients and possible substitutions. Cornstarch: This helps thicken the sauce. Here is a list of substitutes if needed. Soy sauce: Use reduced or low-sodium soy sauce so this dish isn’t too salty. After all, you can always add some salt at the end, but you can’t take it away. Chicken broth or stock: We recommend low-sodium because chicken stock and broth can vary a lot in overall saltiness. Don’t have this ingredient? Water will even work in a pinch! Sesame oil: For a great authentic flavor, sesame oil really delivers. If you can find toasted sesame oil, that’s even better! This oil is typically found with Asian ingredients, not near the other oils in the grocery store. Brown sugar: Here’s a balancing ingredient. Light or dark brown sugar will work; honey will also do the trick if you’re avoiding refined sugars. Honey and brown sugar don’t sweeten the same, so you’ll want to use slightly less honey if substituting it for the brown sugar. Sriracha sauce: Use this to add heat and flavor. You can, of course, reduce (or even omit it entirely) if you’re not a fan of heat. Alternatively, add more or drizzle extra on your bowl of Pork Ramen Stir Fry if you love the heat! Note that if you do reduce or leave out the Sriracha sauce, the flavors will be slightly lacking.

Once smooth, add in 2 tsp sriracha, 1 tablespoon brown sugar, 1/3 cup chicken broth or water, and 2 tbsp sesame oil (32g). If desired, add 1/4 teaspoon white ground pepper or a pinch of black pepper. Set aside. Bring a large pot of water to a boil.PORK: Heat the remaining 1 tbsp sesame oil in a large skillet or wok over high heat. Once oil is hot, add in pork.

Meanwhile, thinly slice the entire bunch of green onions and mince garlic and ginger.VEGGIES: Add 1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions (set aside rest for later, 15g), 2 tsp garlic, 2 tsp ginger to pork. Saute for 1 minute. Add in 1-1/3 cup edamame and 1-1/3 cup corn. Saute until veggies are tender and thawed through, 2-3 minutes. RAMEN: Water should be boiling at this point. Add in ramen and cook for 2 minutes. Drain and shake off excess water. Toss with a swish (1 tbsp.) of vegetable oil to keep noodles from sticking. Add ramen and sauce (give it another quick stir first) to the skillet. Toss with tongs until sauce thickens and nicely coats everything. Remove from heat. ENJOY: Add a sprinkle of sesame seeds and additional pepper if desired. Top with set aside green onions and enjoy immediately! Video Recipe NotesNote 1: Garlic and Ginger: This is about 2-3 cloves garlic and about a 1-inch piece of ginger. For a shortcut, use refrigerated garlic paste and refrigerated minced garlic. OR try Dorot’s® garlic and ginger cubes. They have crushed garlic and crushed ginger that you can keep handy in the freezer and pop into this (and other) recipes when needed. (Check if your local store carries them; they’re typically found with frozen veggies in the grocery store). Note 2: Edamame: Edamame is sold fresh or frozen in the store, but I typically use the frozen shelled soybeans since it’s hard for me to find fresh in my area. Don't worry about thawing or boiling beforehand-- they cook perfectly from frozen! Note 3: Ramen: Discard the seasoning packets (or save for another recipe) and just use the noodles. You can also use chow mein noodles instead of ramen; just make sure to have the right amount — 9 ounces is perfect for this recipe.
