Serves 6

12 oz. Medium Egg Noodles, uncooked
1 1/4 pounds pork tenderloin, trimmed of fat
2 tsp. oriental sesame oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp. bottled minced ginger root or finely shredded fresh ginger root
1 red or yellow bell pepper, cut into short, thin strips

Add bell pepper and snow peas to skillet; stir fry 1 minute. Combine broth and cornstarch; mix well. Add broth mixture, hoisin sauce and soy sauce to skillet; bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Add pork mixture; stir-fry 1 minute or until pork is cooked through.
