Pork Soba with Green BeansCourse: DinnerCuisine: AsianDifficulty: Easy
My family loves this dish. My kids love all Asian food. I wish we had a bigger selection around us. We usually have to wait until we are in a city to really dive into authentic Asian cuisine. This is really good and has amazing flavors. You can swap out the ground pork for ground turkey. This is really a fantastic and easy to do meal.
