Wash produce before use


Cook the soba noodles

Bring a medium sauce pot of water to a boil. Add the soba noodles and cook until just tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water.
While the water heats and the soba noodles cook, prepare the pork.


Cook the pork; toss the noodles

  • Trim the root ends from the scallions; thinly slice the scallions on the diagonal, keeping the white and green parts separate. Set aside the green parts for garnish.
  • If using the chile flakes, set aside half for garnish.
In a large frying pan over medium heat, warm 2 to 3 teaspoons [3 to 4 tsp] oil until hot but not smoking. Add the pork, season with salt and pepper and the five-spice powder, and cook without stirring until the pork is lightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Turn the pork, add the white parts of the scallions and 1½ cups [3 cups] water, and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally to break the pork into pieces, until warmed through, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from the heat.
In a large bowl, toss together the soba noodles, pork, spinach, rice vinegar blend, and up to half the chile flakes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the pork and noodles to individual bowls. Top with the carrots, edamame, green parts of the scallions, and as many of the remaining chile flakes as you like and serve.
