Potsticker Noodle Bowl Ingredients

Potsticker Noodle Bowl raw ingredients that are labeled

This fresh dinner recipe teaches you how to make a quick, Asian-inspired sauce that the whole family will love and comes together using ingredients you may already have on hand.

You’ll Need:

  • 8-ounce package of wide LoMein Noodles (cooked and rinsed according to package instructions)
  • 1 tablespoon peanut oil (or vegetable oil if there is an allergy issue)
  • 1 pound ground pork
  • ¼ cup + 2 tablespoons sliced green onions, divided (¼ cup cooked with pork and 2 tablespoons for garnish)
  • ½ cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 3 tablespoons Mirin sweet cooking rice wine 
  • 2 tablespoons dark soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons grated ginger
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • ½ teaspoon sriracha hot sauce (optional: adjust the amount according to desired heat level)
  • 4 cups bagged coleslaw mix (shredded green cabbage, shredded red cabbage and shredded carrots)

Potsticker Noodle Bowl Substitutions and Additions

If you’re looking to customize your Potsticker Noodle Bowl or adapt it based on what you have on hand, here are some great substitutions and additions. 

Keep in mind that making adjustments to the recipe might alter the taste and texture.

Ground Pork: You can use other ground meats (ground chicken, ground turkey, or ground beef) if you prefer a different protein.

Peanut Oil: If you have a peanut allergy, substitute with vegetable oil or canola oil. Both have a neutral taste and work well for high-heat cooking.

LoMein Noodles: If you can’t find LoMein noodles, rice noodles or even ramen noodles can also work. In a pinch, you can use spaghetti or linguine.

If you prefer rice instead of noodles, you can serve the meat, vegetables, and sauce over steamed white rice or fried rice instead.

Green Onions: Chives or thinly sliced shallots can be substituted. They provide a similar mild onion flavor and fresh garnish.

Low-Sodium Chicken Broth: Vegetable broth is a great alternative for a vegetarian option. It will still add depth to the sauce without the meat-based flavor. If you change up the ground meat, you can use the same flavor of broth to keep the dish consistent.

Mirin: If you can’t find Mirin, use dry sherry (the kind you would drink). You can also use seasoned rice wine vinegar with an added tablespoon of granulated sugar to maintain the sweetness in the sauce.

Dark Soy Sauce: Regular soy sauce can be used, but note that your sauce will be lighter in color. If you use regular soy sauce, increase the amount to 4 tablespoons to achieve a similar saltiness. In place of soy sauce, you can use teriyaki sauce, coconut aminos, or tamari sauce.

Sriracha Hot Sauce: For a different kind of heat, you can use chili garlic sauce or a little bit of red pepper flakes. Adjust the amount according to your heat preference.

Coleslaw Mix: If you prefer fresh vegetables, use thinly sliced cabbage, carrots, and bell peppers. Any cruciferous veggies you like will work! They add a fresh, crunchy texture and can be customized to your liking.

How To Make This Potsticker Noodle Bowl Recipe

In the time it takes to boil your noodles, you’ll cook your pork, make a delectable sauce, and mix in your veggies. Fold the LoMein into the dish and you’re ready to eat! 

Let’s explore the step-by-step process for making this delicious noodle bowl, which incorporates all your favorite potsticker flavors.

STEP ONE: Boil, drain, and rinse the LoMein noodles with cold running water (cook according to the package directions). Set aside when they’re ready. While they cook, prepare the rest of your dish.

PRO TIP: To prevent the noodles from sticking together after draining, toss them lightly with a bit of oil.

STEP TWO: Add the peanut oil to a large skillet (or a large wok) and heat it over medium-high heat.

STEP THREE: Once the oil is hot, add the ground pork and ¼ cup of the sliced green onions. Cook and brown the pork for 5-6 minutes, stirring occasionally, until no pink remains.

PRO TIP: Use a spatula or wooden spoon to break up the pork into small pieces as it cooks for even browning.

STEP FOUR: While the pork is cooking, make the sauce by combining the low-sodium chicken broth, Mirin, dark soy sauce, minced garlic, grated ginger, sesame oil, and Sriracha in a small mixing bowl. Whisk everything together until well combined, then set aside.

PRO TIP: Taste the sauce before adding it to the skillet. This is a good time to add more Sriracha if you want your sauce to be spicier.

STEP FIVE: Once the pork is fully cooked, add the cooked LoMein noodles, coleslaw mix, and sauce to the skillet.

STEP SIX: Using tongs, gently toss all the ingredients together to ensure everything is well-coated with the sauce.

PRO TIP: Toss the ingredients gently to avoid breaking the noodles.

STEP SEVEN: Allow the Potsticker Noodles to cook for a few additional minutes, or until the liquids have reduced and all the noodles and pork are fully coated with the sauce.

STEP EIGHT: Transfer the cooked noodles to a large serving bowl. Garnish with the remaining 2 tablespoons of sliced green onions for a fresh, bright finish.

PRO TIP: Eat right away! This Potsticker Noodle Bowl is best served freshly made. Garnish as desired. Add red chili pepper flakes for a touch of heat.

Troubleshooting

We create recipes that are easy to make, but rarely, you might run into trouble. Here are some common issues you could encounter when making the Potsticker Bowls, along with solutions to prevent them:

  • If the noodles stick together, they can end up breaking and making a messy dish. Instead, drizzle a touch of olive or peanut oil over the noodles and toss them gently to keep them from sticking while you make the rest of your meal.
  • The pork is done cooking as soon as you no longer see pink in the meat. If you cook it too long, it will become dry.
  • If you’re not a fan of salty food, you may want to use low-sodium chicken broth. You can also reduce from 2 tablespoons soy sauce to one.
  • If you don’t have enough sauce to coat your noodles or if you just want your noodle bowls saucier, add a bit more broth and a splash of soy sauce. 
  • It can take 3-4 minutes for your sauce to thicken up. Be patient!

How To Serve Pork Noodle Bowls

There are plenty of ways to enjoy the great flavors of this Asian-inspired dish.

Individual Servings: Serve the Potsticker Noodle Bowl in individual bowls, garnished with a sprinkle of sesame seeds and a drizzle of sriracha for a pop of color and heat. Pair it with a side of steamed edamame or a cucumber salad for a refreshing meal.

Family Style Dinner: Serve your potsticker noodles family style. Set a large serving platter of noodles in the center of the table and serve with other Asian-inspired dishes. Make egg rolls, teriyaki chicken skewers, and Asian chicken salad for a feast that’s bursting with flavor.

Lunchtime Leftovers: Pack your leftover Potsticker Noodle Bowl into individual containers for lunch. Add a side of fresh fruit, such as pineapple chunks or mandarin oranges, to finish your meal with a touch of sweetness.

Fun Appetizers: Impress your guests at your next party by serving mini versions of the Potsticker Noodle Bowl as appetizers. Fill wonton cups with the noodle mixture and top them with a sprinkle of green onions for a bite-sized treat that’s perfect for mingling.

This dish is wonderfully simple and comforting for dinner with friends. It’s ideal for a family dinner option, too, and can easily be part of your weekly menu rotation.

How To Store Leftovers

Your Potsticker Noodle Bowl is best served hot and fresh. But whether you want to make this ahead or store your leftovers, here are our best tips:

MAKE AHEAD: If you want to make this noodle bowl ahead of time, we suggest you cook the noodles, sauté the beef, and mix together the sauce. Refrigerate each element separately until you’re ready to eat, then mix them together along with your coleslaw mix, until hot.

IN THE FRIDGE: If you have leftovers, you can refrigerate them for up to two days. Store in an airtight container. Keep in mind that your vegetables might be soggier when you reheat them.

IN THE FREEZER: We don’t recommend freezing these potsticker noodles. The vegetables won’t thaw well. Eat these up fresh!

HOW TO REHEAT: The best way to reheat these potsticker noodles is in a skillet. Heat over medium heat until hot through. You may need to add a bit of broth to loosen up the sauce. You can also microwave your leftovers. Cover them in plastic wrap and microwave in 30-45 second bursts until hot.
