Finished Kimchi Shirataki Noodles

Faux Pasta Quest: Kimchi Shirataki Noodles!

So the latest crazy in low carb, keto cooking is Shirataki noodles. If you’re not familiar, Shirataki noodles are an asian noodle substitute made from devil’s tongue with between 0 and 1 carb per serving depending on the type.  Since this is an asian noodle, what goes better than Kimchi? If Shirataki isn’t your style, make sure to check out my other faux pasta articles!

Kimchi Shirataki NoodlesHere is the finished dish and I think it turned out really well!

Pork BellyFor the protein portion of this dish, I went with thinly sliced pork belly. Since I will be stir frying this quickly in a wok, I made sure to prep everything ahead of time.

KimchiFor the vegetables, I used chopped up kimchi.  Kimchi are spicy, fermented vegetables and should be available at any specialty asian grocery store.  Alternatively, you can just get some stir fry vegetables and add some hot sauce.

Shirataki NoodlesMake sure to wash the noodles REALLY well.  They stink and are stored in some sort of nasty liquid. However, a good washing gets rid of that entirely.  The above is a combination of two different packs, one angel hair and one spaghetti.

Wok and OilsNow that all of the ingredients are prepped, we’re ready to start stir frying!  Assembly a variety of asian oils and spices into a nonstick wok and heat.

Pork BellyStart by cooking the meat in the sauce.

Incorporate the kimchiAdd in the kimchi and incorporate it into the mix.

Shirataki Noodles in WokMake a hole in the center of the wok and drop in the noodles.  Fry for a few additional minutes and mix it all together.

Finished Kimchi Shirataki NoodlesHere is the final dish in the wok!

Final MealAdd some cut green onions on top and the dish is finished!  I really liked the mix and it was pretty simple, just rinse the noodles, cook meat and vegetables, add noodles, and your done!
