Doesn’t a bowl full of pork ramen noodles just sound cozy? I’m a big fan of healthy soups and also a big fan of comfort food. This Paleo + Whole30 pork ramen makes me feel all warm and cozy. We even have some low carb, Keto options for you, too!
Quick + Easy
If you haven’t noticed…I’m a lazy cook. It’s true. I don’t like to spend THAT much time preparing a meal. Or if I do, it better put some leftovers in the fridge to cut down on cooking time another day. Well, these pork ramen noodles are both quick + easy AND make leftovers! You’ll be enjoying this meal in 30 minutes and have some in the fridge for lunch or another dinner. Win-win! Love it when that happens!
Quality Ground Pork
The key to delicious pork recipes is finding a good source of quality meats. We’ve been loving Moink to help supplement our freezer when we run out of the pork and beef we get from the pigs and cows Justin’s mom raises. It’s been so great having quality cuts in our freezer and being well-stocked, so quick + easy meals like this pork ramen can happen on the regular! We teamed up with our friends at Moink to bring you a special discount code since we’ve enjoyed their products so much! Enter the code REALSIMPLEGOOD at checkout to save $20 off your first box!
In these pictures, we used rice noodles we found at a local health foods store – they’re Thai Kitchen brand and the ingredients are just rice and water. They come dry and you add them right into the soup to soften and cook. Another option would be to use Cappello’s paleo-friendly noodles. If you’re doing a Whole30 or trying to eat Keto/low carb, then use zucchini noodles instead. It’s an easy swap that will keep you on track with your own personal goals.

- 4 green onions, diced (the white and green parts are used in separate steps)

Heat a large stock pot over medium heat and add pork. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the pork is almost cooked through, about 6-7 minutes.
While the pork is cooking, prepare the onions, garlic, ginger and kale or cruciferous veggies as noted.
When the pork is almost browned, add in the white part of the green onions, garlic and ginger. Stir and cook for 1-2 minutes.
Add the kale or cruciferous veggies, coconut aminos, apple cider vinegar, fish sauce and beef broth and bring the pot to a low boil.
