Soba Noodle Bowl with Pork, Radishes, and Snap Peas

Soba noodle bowl with pork, radishes, and snap peas

I've professed my love for noodle bowls countless time on this blog, but this one really did me in. It's spicy but also kind of sweet and bright because of the snappy crunch of peas and the fresh mint. The tangy radishes provide texture and bite and everything comes together with a spicy sauce that coats the noodles and pork. I definitely think the pork would also work on a sandwich or mixed into a stir fry - just marinate it according to the directions below and use it as you wish!
