Lemons And Ginger Give Pork A Sweet & Sour Kick
Lemon and ginger are two flavors that go great together. You've probably seen them together in drinks from ginger-lemonade to lemon-ginger tea, but have you ever seen them together on top of pork and chow mein noodles? If not, you're in for a delicious treat.
One of my favorite dishes from Chinese restaurants is lemon chicken. I love that sweet, tangy sauce that covers the breaded chicken; it's almost always the first thing I order when we order in.
I'm also a big fan of chow mein. Those noodles drenched in that delicious soy sauce just makes my night, but I never ever combine them. After all, while I'm a huge advocate for sweet and salty foods like kettle korn, lemon chicken and chow mein are two dishes that are best kept separate.
But I really love the lemon sauce that goes over the chicken and I adore those chow mein noodles. So, what if I add that sweet and sour lemon sauce to my noodles instead of the soy sauce that usually accompanies them? Happiness happens. And, if I add a little ginger and substitute pork for the chicken, an amazing new dish is born. A dish so wonderful, I may never go back to plain old lemon chicken and chow mein again.
