Orange juice, hoisin sauce, and cider vinegar give this pasta its sweet-and-sour flavor. The vegetables are quickly cooked so they stay crisp.

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • In a small bowl, stir together orange juice, hoisin sauce, vinegar, ketchup, and 3/4 teaspoon salt; set sauce aside. Cut off tops 1 to 2 inches below florets. Trim broccoli and discard tough ends of stalks, then peel and thinly slice crosswise. Separate broccoli heads into florets.

  • In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook noodles until al dente according to package directions, adding broccoli (stalks and florets) and peas during last minute of cooking. Drain; transfer to a large bowl.

  • In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Dredge pork in cornstarch, shaking off excess. Saute pork until lightly browned and cooked through, tossing frequently, about 3 minutes. Pour in reserved sauce, and bring to a boil. Add to bowl with noodles; toss to combine.

Cook's Notes

You can use almost any type of noodle in this dish, including traditional Asian noodles such as udon, available in specialty shops and many supermarkets.

People who don't follow directions and who substitute ingredients should really keep their uninformed opinions to themselves; their rantings are just silly. I remembered this recipe from many years ago and couldn't remember anything except the basics: brocolli, noodles, pork. I was so delighted to find it here. I made it for dinner last night using all the exact ingredients and it is a delicious supper dish.

I used MartaAurora's suggestions below and the sauce was delicious! I used brown sugar and a splash of hot sauce. The meal came out great! I will definitely make this again

After reading the reviews I reduced 1 tbsp of vinegar and added 1 tbsp of sugar. It was a really good change and was delicious.

Way too much acidity in this sauce- added a little peanut butter to try and balance it out, but overall I ruined some beautiful organic broccoli and other veggies with this recipe!

Bad. Really, really bad. Overwhelming taste of both vinegar and orange juice. Not a good combination. Just one big ICK from here.

Nothing about this was Asian. The orange juice taste was overwhelming. Huge disappointment.

There was a time when any Martha recipe was a winner. Those days seem to be over! This is one of several of her recipes I've made lately, and found to be a total disappointment. It was a great run, Martha!

Not so good. Rather 1 layered in flavor.Vinegar takes over and you can't tell there is any hoisin in it. I would not make it again.

Since I didn't have any broccoli, I subbed cabbage and it was a hit!
