One of our favorites...

I wanted to post one of our favorite recipes to make right now. I'm totally not into recipes that have a lot of ingredients. Usually, if a recipe has a long list of ingredients, I turn the page. Ben and I love this recipe, and usually end up having it (or a variation of it) once a week. It is super easy because you make it all in one skillet. Feel free to change it to suit your tastes. You can substitute different vegetables, like carrots and zuccini. You can also switch it up by making it with chicken, pork, shrimp, etc. It's very inexpensive...only about $2 per serving!

The Pampered Chef® Asian Pork & Noodle Skillet Recipe

1 medium red bell pepper
1 medium onion
2 pork tenderloins (about 1 lb each), or 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 tbsp vegetable oil
2 tbsp Pampered Chef's Asian Seasoning Mix, optional
4 pkg (3 oz each) chicken or oriental flavor ramen noodles
4 cups water
1 cup broccoli, coarsely chopped

Cut bell pepper lengthwise into 1/4-in. strips using Chef's Knife. Chop onion and broccoli, set aside. Slice pork lengthwise into strips. Thinly slice strips crosswise. Combine pork, 1 Tablespoon of oil, seasoning mix and two of the ramen seasoning packets in Classic Batter Bowl; mix well. Add 1 Tablespoon vegetable oil to (12-in.) Skillet; heat over medium-high heat 1-3 minutes or until shimmering. Cook pork until browned; remove from Skillet and keep warm. Add broccoli and bell pepper to Skillet. Cook 1-2 minutes or until crisp-tender. Add water and remaining ramen seasoning packets. Add ramen noodles and onions to Skillet. Cover; bring to a boil and cook 4-5 minutes or until noodles are softened. Add pork; stir to break apart noodles. Remove Skillet from heat; let stand, covered, 3-4 minutes or until pork is heated through.
