  • Whisk together soy sauce, rice vinegar, chili garlic sauce and cornstarch until smooth. Add the ground pork and mix together until incorporated. Allow to sit for half an hour.
  • While meat is marinating, prepare spaghetti squash. Cut ends off of squash and then split in half. Scoop out seeds and "innards", then place squash in a microwave safe dish, cut side up. Microwave for 12-20 minutes, until done. Squash is done when skin can easily be pierced with a knife and flesh easily shreds with a fork.
  • After allowing the squash to cool for a few minutes, use a fork to shred the flesh into "noodles". Drain in a colander lined with paper towels to remove excess moisture.
  • Heat a large skillet over high heat, then add the oil.
  • When pan and oil are hot, add the pork and cook, stirring constantly, for about 2 minutes, breaking the meat into smaller pieces.
  • Add ⅔ of the green onions to the pork, then continue to cook until the meat is well browned, about 2 more minutes.
  • Lower heat to medium high and add the broth. Cook for 2-3 more minutes, until broth is reduced.
  • Add handfuls of the spaghetti squash noodles, stirring as you go to combine.
  • Top with the rest of the green onions and serve.


*If you don't want to use pork, ground turkey will also work
**for gluten free, be sure to use GF soy sauce
