Chinese Pork Tenderloin with Garlic-Sauced Noodles

(this has only about 300 calories per serving!)

2 (1-lb) pork tenderloins, trimmed
1/4 cup soy-sauce, divided
1 Tblsp hoisin sauce
1 Tblsp tomato sauce
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp grated peeled fresh ginger
2 garlic cloves, minced
3 Tblsp seasoned rice vinegar
1 tsp dark sesame oil
8 cups hot cooked Chinese-style noodles
1 cup matchstick-cut carrots
1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves
3/4 cup green onions, sliced
1/3 cup peanuts, chopped (optional)
1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
9 lime wedges
  • Place tenderloins in a 5-qt electric slow cooker. Combine 1 tblsp soy sauce and next 5 ingredients (through garlic); drizzle over tenderloins. Cover and cook on LOW for 3-1/2 hours. Remove pork from slow cooker and place in a large bowl, reserving cooking liquid in slow cooker. Let pork stand 10 minutes.
  • Strain cooking liquid through a sieve into a bowl. Cover and keep warm. Shred pork with 2 forks (or use THIS method).
  • Return cooking liquid to slow cooker, stir in remaining 3 Tblsp soy sauce, vinegar, and sesame oil. Cover and cook in HIGH 10 minutes. Turn slow cooker off. Add pork, noodles, and next 3 ingredients, tossing to coat. Spoon noodle mixture into bowls; sprinkle with peanuts and chopped cilantro leaves. Serve with lime wedges.

This sounds great! Do you think it would be ok without the lime? Is it just a garnish, or do you squeeze it on? (My daughter is allergic to citrus)
