Noodles & Co has brought slow-braised, naturally raised pork to their menu. As one of the most popular meats across many of the world’s cuisines, the addition of flow-braised pork allows guests to further enhance the global flavors found on the menu.
“We wanted to create a shredded pork that is amazing on its own, but nothing short of mind-blowing when paired with most any of our global dishes,” explained Tessa Stamper , Noodles & Company chef and registered dietitian. “It’s yet another way for our guests to get a different taste every day.”
I was invited to taste test the new braised pork dishes and I was impressed to see that the braised pork was very moist without a greasy mouth feel.

A spin on my favorite mac n cheese. Noodle & Co’s truffle mac makes any bad day a good day. Creamy mac and cheese spiced up with tender braised pork, crunchy onion bites and a sweet tangy barbecue sauce.
Noodle & Co uses naturally raised and slow-braised pork. No added preservatives, hormones or antibiotics. They start with a shoulder cut of pork, then dry rub it with a mixture of pepper, salt, oregano and thyme. Sear it to lock up the juices and braise it sous-vide style (slow and slow) for five hours. You get a fall-off-the-bone, pull apart, tender shredded pork with a nice mild peppery taste.
