Pork Stir Fry with Collard Greens

So normally with meals like this I don't follow a recipe because over many years stir fry has become second nature....well and honestly who can't make a tasty stir fry?  Anyways I made this one because it is a low fat and healthy recipe, which lets admit stir fry's can get a little heavy sometimes.  Once again I used pork, this is because I was at my parents house waiting to watch the second Suns vs. Lakers game (go suns) and I got bored and wanted to make them dinner...and as usual they already pulled meat out of the freezer that morning to eat for dinner and yes it was pork.  I swear I don't normally eat this much pork.  So here it is:

Serves 4
Adapted from Cooking Light

The Ingredients
1 package (about 4 ounces) uncooked rice noodles
2 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 pound lean pork chops, thinly sliced
1 cup fat-free chicken broth
1/4 cup hoisin sauce
1 tablespoon cornstarch
5 teaspoons sesame oil
1 bunch of collard greens, chopped
3 carrots, sliced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon ginger, grated or jar
1/2 cup green onions, chopped
1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
Sriracha sauce

The Process
1.  Prepare rice noodles according to package. When noodles are done mix in 1 teaspoon sesame oil, 1/2 tablespoon soy sauce, and cilantro.

2.  In a small bowl combine pork and 1 tablespoon soy sauce and set aside.

3.  In medium mixing bowl combine remaining 1 tablespoon soy sauce, chicken broth, hoisin sauce, cornstarch, and whisk until smooth.

4.  In large skillet heat 1 tablespoon sesame oil over medium-high heat.  Add pork mixture to skillet, saute for 3 minutes or until browned then remove pork from skillet.

5.  Add remaining 1 teaspoon sesame oil to same skillet and add collard greens, carrots, ginger, and garlic, saute about 2 minutes.

6.  Add pork to skillet once more and stir in broth mixture, simmer about 3 minutes or until thick while stirring occasionally.

7.  Remove from heat and stir in green onions.  Serve pork mixture over noodle mixture.

I will say while I did enjoy the dish I don't prefer sweet things and hoision sauce is definitely sweet.
