Soul Food Saturday #37

Good Morning, and welcome to the first weekend of 2014! I hope you had a wonderful holiday and rang in the New Year with those you love the most. If you're keeping with tradition and want one more pork meal to add some luck to your new year, Bekki has something I think you'll enjoy!

One night all I could think about was lo mien noodles in spicy peanut sauce. I don’t eat much pasta now days and didn't have any to cook even if I had thought about it a few minutes longer. So I decided why not take it another way? Add meat to the peanut sauce and some shredded cabbage. I’d get the sauce and veggies at the same time. Who doesn't need one more one pot meal? If you’re like me, I can never have enough new ones. Grab a pen you’re going to want to jot this one down. Enjoy!
Pork with Cabbage and Spicy Peanut Sauce
2 lb. boneless pork roast, chopped
1 large onion, sliced
1 small head of cabbage, shredded
2 tbs. crunchy natural peanut butter
¾ c. soy sauce
1 tbs. red pepper flakes
3 tsp. granulated garlic
Salt to taste
1 tbs. olive oil
In a large pan add oil and onions. Cook until onions are clear. Add pork, season with salt garlic and half of red pepper flakes. Stir to combine. Cook until pork is cooked through. Make a small space in the middle of the pan by pushing pork back against edges of pan. Add peanut butter and allow it to melt slightly. Add 1/3 of soy sauce and stir into peanut butter to begin to thin it. As it bubbles it will thicken and continue to melt. Add the second third and continue to stir. Then the final addition, it will be loose enough to distribute throughout the pork. Add the remaining red pepper flakes, and then stir to combine with pork with the sauce. Add shredded cabbage and stir to coat with the sauce. Cover and cook until cabbage is tender, stirring often.
