Asian pork & noodle skillet

Ok, the credit to this one is going to the Pampered Chef, however I made some changes of my own (as usual).

What I actually did here, was make about 3 lbs of pork tenderloin in the crock pot (on low for about 8 hours with about 2 cups of water and some salt and pepper). When it was done, I shredded it. So with half (or maybe a little more) I made this recipe and with the rest, the next day, I removed the liquid and added BBQ sauce and made shredded BBQ pork sandwiches. To me, it was easier than the recipe and obviously, it's really nice to have dinner for two nights done in one.

2 medium carrots, peeled
1 medium red bell pepper
5-6 green onions
2 tbsp toasted sesame oil
2 tbsp asian seasoning mix (I had no idea what they meant here, b/c my grocery store didn't have anything like that in the seasoning isle. so I bought 2 packets of fried rice seasoning (in the asian foods isle) and that worked great)
4 pkg oriental-flavor ramen noodles (I actually used 6 packets b/c we prefer a lower ratio of meat to noodles, in general)
1 tbsp veg oil
4 cups water

Cut carrots into julienne strips (i just slice them in half lengthwise then slice them on the diagonal). Cut bell pepper lengthwise into 1/4 inch strips. Slice green onions.

Add vegetable oil to 12-inch skillet. Heat over med-high heat until shimmering.

***The actual recipe calls for 2 lbs pork tenderloin to be sliced lengthwise and then cut into thin strips across to make small bite size pieces. Then mix with the sesame oil, seasoning mix and 2 of the ramen noodle packets. Add half the pork to the skillet, cook for 3-4 minutes. Remove and repeat with the remaining half. I did the same thing but with the precooked pork so I only needed to heat it for a minute or two and I did it all together. Either way you end up with an empty pan and cooked/seasoned pork, so it really doesn't matter.

Add carrots and bell pepper to skillet. Cook 1-2 minutes or until crisp-tender. Add water and remaining ramen seasoning packets. Stir to loosen browned bits from bottom of skillet. Add ramen noodles and green onions to skillet. Cover, bring to boil and cook 4-5 minutes or until noodles are softened. Add pork, stir to break apart noodles. Remove skillet from heat, let stand, covered 3-4 minutes or until pork is heated through.
