Instructions Checklist
  • In a medium bowl toss pork strips with five-spice powder and ginger. Coat an unheated 4- to 6-quart nonstick Dutch oven with cooking spray. Heat over medium-high heat. Add pork strips. Cook for 4 to 6 minutes or until pork is browned, stirring occasionally. Remove pork from pan and set aside.

  • In the same pan cook carrots, mushrooms, and celery in hot oil over medium heat for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add water and broth. Bring to boiling. Add soba; return to boiling and cook, uncovered, for 3 to 4 minutes or until noodles are just tender.

  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine flour and soy sauce until smooth. Add to noodle mixture along with bok choy, snow peas, green onions and cooked pork. Cook and stir until just boiling; cook and stir for 1 minute more. Remove from heat. Stir in orange juice just before serving. Ladle mixture into four serving bowls.
