Mix 2 tablespoons of black pepper and 3/4 cup vegetable oil in a small saucepan and heat over medium heat for 2 minutes. Strain out pepper and reserve oil in a bowl. Add 6 tablespoons syrup and 6 tablespoons soy sauce to oil and mix well.
Boil a package of whole wheat noodles (linguine, vermicelli, whatever) according to package instructions.
While noodles are boiling, chop up some pork loin cutlets into bite-sized chunks and saute in a skillet over medium heat until cooked. Salt and pepper to taste.
Drain pasta into a bowl. Pour oil mixture over noodles and toss to coat.
Toss in 1/2 cup chopped cilantro, 1/4 cup of shredded carrot, and the cooked pork, and stir to combine.
Voila! So delicious. Here is the original recipe if you have more ingredients on hand - it probably tastes more authentic too, but my version did the trick in a pinch!
I also sewed this coffee bag clutch yesterday. It is now in my Etsy shop for sale!
