Broccoli-Pork Stir-Fry with Noodles

I combined several recipes to come up with this dish that my family loves. It is not only quick and delicious but also healthy. I sometimes substitute boneless, skinless chicken breasts for the pork. —Joan Hallford, North Richland Hills, Texas

      This was an easy-to-make dish that was very popular with my family. I used garlic and ginger from a tube for a quick and easy addition, plus I added a little red-pepper flakes to spice it up. The sesame seeds make a nice finishing touch!

      This is one of my family's favorite meals as we have it at least once a month. I do use chicken, though, instead of pork. I alternate serving over noodles or rice. Husband prefers brown rice. Because I love vegetables, I also add mushrooms , celery and snow peas which helps to feed more. I love the brown sauce which this makes.
