Recipe by Eshun Mott


  • 1/4 cup oyster sauce

  • 2 tbsp low-sodium soy sauce

  • 1 tbsp sesame oil

  • 1 tbsp chopped garlic

  • 1 tsp granulated sugar

  • 1/2 tsp Asian chili sauce

  • 1 pork tenderloin, (about 1 lb)

  • 1/2 tsp five-spice powder

  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 1/8 tsp black pepper

  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil

  • 170 g broad "no yolk" egg noodles

  • 12 oz baby bok choy, thinly sliced on the bias (about 6 cups)

  • 3/4 cup diagonally sliced green onions


  • Preheat oven to 400F.

  • Combine first 6 ingredients in a medium bowl. Set aside.

  • Season pork with five-spice powder, salt and pepper.

  • Heat a large ovenproof frying pan over high. Add oil and sear each side of pork until browned.

  • Remove from heat and brush pork with 2 tbsp oyster sauce mixture.

  • Place in the oven; roast for 12 to 20 min or until a meat thermometer inserted into thickest part reads 155F to 160F. Transfer to a cutting board, let stand for 5 min, then thinly slice.

  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil, and cook noodles according to package directions, until al dente.

  • Drain noodles, reserve about ¼ cup cooking water and return noodles to pot with bok choy. Add reserved oyster sauce mixture. Toss until bok choy is wilted and noodles are coated with sauce; add reserved cooking water to loosen as needed. Toss with pork and green onions and pack.
