Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a medium bowl combine soy sauce, vinegar, lime juice, honey, shallots, ginger, garlic, and crushed red pepper. Place half of the mixture in a resealable plastic bag with the chili-garlic sauce; knead to combine. Add pork to bag and seal. Turn to coat. Chill up to 24 hours.

  • For plum salsa: Chop four of the plums. Add to remaining soy sauce mixture along with cilantro. Chill, covered, up to 24 hours.

  • Prepare grill for medium indirect grilling. Remove pork from marinade (discard marinade); grill over a drip pan 25 to 30 minutes or until 145°F. Remove; let stand 5 minutes. Slice pork.

  • Slice remaining plums. Arrange cabbage, noodles, pork, plums, peas, and carrots in four bowls. Top with plum salsa and peanuts. Serves 4.
