Paleo Pork Lo Mein




Paleo Pork Lo Mein

My son was born a week ago now, so we have been in total baby land. I think I have 1,000 pictures from just his first week. So while I’ve been taking pictures of the kiddo nonstop, I didn’t quite get around to photographing this recipe.

This was actually my first meal to cook after coming home. We spent a few days getting settled, mostly eating food that friends and family brought over, but I missed the kitchen, so this was my first meal and it did not disappoint. Leftovers the next day were just as good.

This recipe is a winner in my book, you’ll just have to trust me despite no photographic evidence!

An easy Paleo version of a Chinese favorite, pork lo mein!



  • 1 lb pork tenderloin, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups snap peas (I used frozen)
  • ¾ cups chicken broth
  • ¼ cup fresh orange juice
  • 3 tablespoons coconut aminos
  • 2+ teaspoons sesame oil
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 zucchini, peeled into noodles


  1. Add some sesame oil to skillet, cook pork for 3 minutes, add snap peas and cook 2 minutes.
  2. Add chicken broth, orange juice, coconut aminos, 2 teaspoons sesame oil, red pepper flakes, crushed garlic, and onion powder. Bring to a boil, and then reduce to a simmer until pork is almost cooked through.
  3. Add zucchini noodles and cook for 2 minutes. *I used a julienne slicer to make my zoodles. Peel cucumber, julienne, then put on a plate and microwave for 30 seconds.
  4. Serve and enjoy!
