A note about serious food allergies

A famous comedian once referred to a meal as a “sadness bowl.” Well, we hate to steal another's material, but this meal could easily be called a bowl of joy. Ground pork and green beans are mixed with lo mein noodles and tossed in a sauce built from teriyaki and gochujang. Topped with the unique flavor of cilantro, this gleeful dish will bring you grins and cheers, no comedy set required. Tip: Line 'em up! The best way to remove the ends of green beans is to line them up evenly, then remove them with one cut.

  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |

Customize It Instructions

  • If using ground turkey, follow same instructions as ground pork.

  • If using ground beef, follow same instructions as ground pork in Step 3, breaking up with a spoon until no pink remains, 4-6 minutes.

  • If using diced chicken thighs, pat dry and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Follow same instructions as ground pork in Step 3, stirring occasionally until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes.

  1. 1

    Cook the Noodles

    Once water is boiling, add noodles and cook until tender, 4-5 minutes, stirring once halfway through.

    Drain noodles in a colander. Rinse with cold water and return to pot. Stir in sesame oil and set aside.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Trim ends off green beans. Cut into 2" pieces.

    Trim and thinly slice green onions on an angle, keeping white and green portions separate.
