Ingredients

Dressing
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 3 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon minced ginger
  • 1 teaspoon garlic-chili paste
Salad
  • 1/2 pound thinly sliced boneless pork chops
  • 2 3 ounce packages ramen noodles, flavor packets discarded
  • 8 ounces snow peas, tough strings removed, sliced
  • 8 ounces baby bok choy, trimmed, cleaned and sliced crosswise
  • 1 sweet red pepper, cored, seeded and thinly sliced
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons dry roasted unsalted peanuts

Make It

1. In a small bowl, combine vinegar, peanut butter, 3 tbsp water, the soy sauce, honey, garlic, ginger and chili paste. Whisk until smooth; set aside.

2. Heat grill or grill pan to medium-high heat. Combine pork chops and 1/3 cup of the dressing in a resealable plastic bag. Marinate at least 15 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of water to a boil. Break up ramen noodles, stir into pot and cook 2 minutes. Add snow peas and bok choy. Return to a boil, cook 1 minute, then drain and rinse in cold water. Drain and place mixture in a large bowl with sliced red pepper.

4. Remove pork from marinade; discard marinade. Grill for 3 to 4 minutes, turning halfway through. Transfer to a cutting board.

5. Toss noodle mixture with remaining dressing and the salt. Slice pork into thin strips and scatter over salad. Sprinkle with peanuts and serve immediately.
