24 ounces Swiss chard (or 2 smaller bunches greens, such as , beet greens, turnip greens or kale, stemmed and washed well in several chang
1 Salt to taste
8 ounces noodles, japanese soba, (somen or wide rice vermicelli)
1 teaspoon dark sesame oil
1/2 pound lean pork, cut in 1/4- by 2-inch strips

Recipe Directions for Stir-Fried Pork and Greens With Noodles

  1. Fill a large pot with water, and bring to a boil. Fill a bowl with ice water. When the water comes to a boil, salt generously and add the greens. Cook the greens 1 to 2 minutes, until just tender, and transfer with a slotted spoon or deep-fry skimmer to the ice water. Drain and squeeze out the water (you don?t have to squeeze them completely dry). Chop coarsely.

  2. Cook the noodles. Bring the water in the pot back to a boil, add the noodles, and stir to separate the strands. Add a couple of tablespoons cold water, just so the water doesn?t boil over. Boil somen noodles for two minutes, rice vermicelli for five to seven minutes, until tender. Drain and rinse with cold water. Place in a bowl of cold water, then drain and toss with the sesame oil. Set aside.

  3. Heat a large, heavy skillet or wok over high heat until hot enough to evaporate a drop of water on contact. Add 1 tablespoon of the oil, swirl to coat the pan, and reduce the heat to medium-high. Add the pork, and stir-fry for two to three minutes, until the meat is cooked through and there are no longer any traces of pink.

  4. Add the remaining oil, ginger and garlic, and stir-fry until fragrant and beginning to color, about 20 to 30 seconds. Stir in the greens, noodles, soy sauce and stock or water. Stir together until heated through, and serve.

  5. Advance preparation: The noodles can be cooked a day ahead, and kept in the refrigerator. The cooked greens will keep for three or four days in a covered bowl in the refrigerator.
