Episode 47: A Very Special Episode - Ask Us Anything!
These show notes are a bit different, you’ll notice, because this episode is a lot different! We are taking selections from the 9 PAGES of Ask Us Anything questions that we were sent by our listeners and answering them here on the podcast. If your question had to do with books and reading, we probably didn’t answer it, not because we don’t love it, but because many of them lend themselves to a full deep-dive! Any books or resources that we mentioned are linked up below for your reference, along with time-stamps, of course. Thanks for sending us your questions, friends!
Pork Ramen “recipe”
1 lb pork (or meat of your choice) sliced into bite-sized strips
4 packages of ramen noodles (Oriental flavor, or whatever flavor you like)
1 lb baby spinach
1/2 cup peanut butter (we like chunky in our family)
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp powdered ginger or grated ginger
red chile pepper flakes to taste
Put the baby spinach in the bottom of a large serving bowl.
Add meat to hot pan with oil, ginger, and red chile pepper flakes. Cook fully through. Meanwhile, follow directions on the ramen packages.
Drain noodles (save 1-2 cups of the water and add 1-2 spice packets) and put them in a serving bowl. Put the cooked meat on top (retain the oil and spices).
Using that same pan, add 1 cup of the reserved cooking water and the peanut putter, cook over low-medium heat to slowly melt the peanut butter into the water. Add soy sauce to taste. While you’re cooking the sauce, add more peanut butter if it seems too thin. Add more cooking water if it seems too thick.
When you dump all this onto the spinach, noodles, and pork, the heat from the noodles and sauce will wilt the spinach. Stir until combined. Serve to everyone you love. If you want to get fancy, you can put sliced green onions or crushed peanuts on top to make it pretty!
