There is no wrong time to serve these Saucy Kimchi Pork Noodles.  For lunch, for dinner, or after a late night (or early morning), these noodles are savory, sweet, rich and spicy- perfection in a bowl!  There are really only 2 steps in this recipe: cook the noodles while you make the sauce, combine and eat!  To make the sauce, brown ground pork with ginger, garlic, paprika, miso and soy sauce.  Add the kimchi to give it salty-sour texture, then simmer to blend the flavors.  Add the cooked noodles and heat to coat with the sauce.  This recipe was created in partnership with Bon Appétit and Shilpa Uskokovic.


  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons minced peeled ginger root
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons white or yellow miso
  • 2 tablespoons paprika
  • 2 cups Swanson® Chicken Broth
  • 1 cup packed finely chopped kimchi
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 16 ounces fresh ramen noodles or spaghetti
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut up


  • Step 1

    Heat the oil in a large Dutch oven (or other heavy pot).  Add the pork and cook until browned, stirring often to separate meat.

  • Step 2

    Add the garlic, ginger and sugar and cook for another 5 minutes.  Add the miso and paprika and cook and stir to mix in the miso.  Stir in the broth, kimchi, soy sauce and red pepper and bring to a simmer.  Reduce the heat to low.  Cook for 25 minutes or until the sauce is reduced.

  • Step 3

    Cook the noodles according to the package directions (you can substitute additional broth for water, if desired) until they are about 1 minute short of al dente.  Drain, reserving some of the cooking liquid.

  • Step 4

    Add the noodles and butter to the pot with the pork mixture.  Heat the pork mixture to a simmer.  Stir and cook for about 2 minutes or until the sauce begins to cling to the noodles (for thinner sauce, add a splash of the reserved cooking liquid).  Serve the noodle mixture topped with sliced green onion, if desired.
