Absolutely one of my favorite dishes. Unfortunately, you can't find good Chinese food or ingredients just anywhere. I've made some adjustments here to make for a dish that satisfies my Dan Dan expectations using only ingredients you can easily find in your typical local grocery store.

What you will need

1 lb Ramen Noodles

4 cloves Garlic

3" Fresh Ginger

1 Tbsp Sesame Oil

1/2 tsp Ground Cardamom

1 Tbsp Chili Oil

1 lb Ground Pork

2 Tbsp Honey

1/2 cup Peanut Butter

1/4 cup Soy Sauce

2 Tbsp Sherry Vinegar

1 bunch Spinach
