Tender pork tenderloin is the perfect partner to this tasty Asian-flavored buckwheat cold noodle salad.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 6 ounces dried soba noodles
  • 3 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
  • 3 tablespoons warm water
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil, divided
  • 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 2 teaspoons Sriracha sauce, or more to taste
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 1 medium lime, zested and juiced
  • 1 teaspoon crushed garlic
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger root
  • 1 small red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons teriyaki sauce
  • 1 teaspoon rice vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 6 ounces pork tenderloin
  • 1 tablespoon chopped peanuts
  • 1 tablespoon sliced green onion
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Bring a large pot of water to a boil, add soba noodles, and cook according to package directions, about 4 minutes. Drain noodles, rinse under cold water, and set aside to cool.
  2. 2 Whisk peanut butter, water, 1 tablespoon sesame oil, hoisin sauce, Sriracha, soy sauce, lime zest and juice, garlic, and ginger together in a small bowl for the dressing. Pour dressing over noodles. Add red bell pepper and toss to combine. Refrigerate until well chilled, at least 1 hour.
  3. 3 Stir teriyaki sauce, rice vinegar, and red pepper flakes together in a bowl until well combined. Cut pork tenderloin into very thin slices, about 1/8 inch thick, then cut each slice in half. Add pork to marinade, cover bowl, and chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes or longer.
  4. 4 Remove pork from refrigerator. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat, and heat the remaining 1 tablespoon sesame oil until hot. Add pork, separating pieces to cover the skillet's bottom. Cook the pork, occasionally stirring, until cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes. Your time will depend on how thinly the pork is cut, but try not to overcook to retain tenderness.
  5. 5 Remove noodles from the refrigerator and give them a good stir. Divide the noodles among 4 plates or bowls. Evenly distribute the pork on top of the noodles and garnish with peanuts, green onion and sesame seeds before serving.

Chef's Notes

To make slicing the pork tenderloin easier, freeze for about 30 minutes.


  1. My family and I all loved this! I was very surprised as I typically do not like peanut-flavored main dishes and halfway through making the dressing I thought I was going to hate it. I couldn’t stop snitching the noodles even before I chilled them! I used the listed amount of spicy ingredients and it - Read more ...
