Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

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, rinse with cold water, and transfer to a large bowl. Wipe out the pot.
While the water heats and the noodles cook, prepare the pork.

2

Prep and cook the pork

  • Pat the pork dry with a paper towel. Cut the pork crosswise into 1-inch-wide strips, then cut the strips crosswise into 1-inch pieces; season lightly with salt and pepper and the marjoram.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Working in batches if needed, add the pork and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned and cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Add more oil between batches if needed.
While the pork cooks, prepare the dressing.

3

Prep and cook the blackberry-miso dressing

  • Cut the blackberries in half; set aside half the blackberries for the salad.
In the same pot used for the noodles, warm 2 to 3 teaspoons oil over medium-low heat until hot but not smoking. Add half the blackberries and 2 tablespoons [¼ cup] water and cook, mashing gently with the back of a spoon, until the blackberries start to soften and break down, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the miso-maple glaze and cook, stirring constantly, until the glaze is blended and warmed through, about 1 minute. Transfer to the bowl with the noodles and toss to coat.

4

Toss the noodle salad

To the bowl with the noodles, add the pork, arugula, carrots, and remaining blackberries and toss to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve

Transfer the pork and soba noodle salad to individual bowls, garnish with the sesame seed blend, and serve.
