Cut pork lengthwise into three strips; cut crosswise into thin slices. In bowl, toss pork with sesame oil; set aside.
Cut carrot in half lengthwise; thinly slice. Thinly slice green pepper; set aside.
In wok or large skillet, heat 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the vegetable oil over high heat; stir-fry pork mixture until browned, about 1 minute. Add cabbage, carrot and green pepper; stir-fry until vegetables are tender-crisp, about 2 minutes. Transfer to plate; set aside.
To pan, add 1 cup (250 mL) water and remaining vegetable oil; bring to boil. Discarding spice packets in packages, add noodles. Cover and steam until soft and loose, about 3 minutes; break apart with spoon. Add reserved pork mixture, bean sprouts, tonkatsu sauce and ginger; toss together until hot and well combined. Scrape onto serving platter; sprinkle with nori.
