This is a combination of two meals that came out delicious.

One 1 1/2 pound boneless pork

Salt and pepper

Garlic powder

6 Tablespoons apricot preserves

One 12 ounce package of lomein noodles

8 tablespoons oil

4 cloves chopped garlic

1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes

One bag of Trader Joes Asian frozen vegetables

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees

Place the pork on a double piece of foil. This is just for easy clean up.

Season the pork with the salt, pepper and garlic powder.

Place the pork in the oven with a meat thermometer.

Cook till medium

Cover with the apricot preserves

Cook another five minutes till the apricots have melted.

Take out of the oven to cool.

Heat the oil, add the garlic and cook till it is light brown. Do not burn it.

Add the red pepper flakes

Take off the heat and set aside.

Cook the noodles according to the package directions but undercook them by 2 or 3 minutes. Make sure you salt the cooking water with one to two  tablespoons salt.

Drain the water and mix the noodles with the garlic oil.

Cook the vegetables according to the package directions and add to the pasta

Add 1/2 to 3/4 of the seasoning package and mix well.

Slice the pork into cubes and mix with the pan juices. The pork drippings are a blend of the apricots, salt, pepper and garlic. Too delicious not to use.

Add to the lomein.

Put $20.00 in your cookie jar because this is better than takeout.
