By Meridian - 26751

  • 1 3-pound spaghetti squash

  • 1 pound pork tenderloin, trimmed

  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil

  • 5 medium scallions, thinly sliced

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce

  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar

  • 1 teaspoon Asian red chile sauce, such as sriracha, or chile oil

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.

  2. Cut squash in half. Scoop out and discard seeds. Place each half, cut-side down, on a baking sheet. Bake until the squash is tender, about 1 hour. Let cool for 10 minutes then shred the flesh with a fork into a bowl. Discard the shell.

  3. Slice pork into thin rounds; cut each round into matchsticks.

  4. Heat a large wok over medium-high heat. Swirl in oil, then add scallions, garlic, ginger and salt; cook, stirring, until fragrant, 30 seconds. Add the pork; cook, stirring constantly, until just cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the squash threads and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add soy sauce, rice vinegar and chile sauce (or chile oil); cook, stirring constantly, until aromatic, about 30 seconds.

  5. Makes 4 servings, about 1 1/2 cups each

  6. MAKE AHEAD TIP: Prepare the squash (Steps 1 & 2), cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days

You can also microwave spaghetti squash. Cut in half, removed seeds, turn cut side down on microwave plate that has about 1 tbsp of water and nuke. You want to be able to pierce the skin easily when it is done.

There you go with cutting something into matchsticks again. I guess this time I'll have to use a knife. Being able to prepare ahead on this one makes it very attractive for a dinner menu.
