Five-Spice Pork Lo Mein

Works equally well with firm veggies (peppers, zucchini, etc) in place of the pork.

8 ounces uncooked Chinese-style noodles
1 tablespoon grated peeled fresh ginger
2 teaspoons five-spice powder
1 (3/4-pound) pork tenderloin, trimmed and cut into thin strips
1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
2 tablespoons toasted peanut oil
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup hoisin sauce
1/2 cup chopped green onions

Cook noodles according to package directions, omitting salt and fat; drain. Place in a large bowl. Snip noodles several times with kitchen scissors.

Combine ginger, five-spice powder, and pork in a medium bowl; add 1/4 teaspoon salt, tossing to coat. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork mixture; sauté 2 minutes or until browned. Stir in remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, water, and hoisin sauce; cook 2 minutes or until pork is done. Add pork mixture and green onions to noodles; toss well to combine.
