Pork Stir Fry with Garlic (I'm going to try this with chicken, too.)
- 3 cups broccoli, chopped into one inch pieces
- 3/4 cup reduced sodium chicken broth
- 1/2 cup chopped scallions (fancy term for green onions)
- 2 Tbsp. minced garlic
- 2 tsp. olive oil
- 1 cup chopped onion
- 1 red bell pepper, chopped
- 1 lb boneless pork tenderloin, cut into 1/2" by 2" strips
- 1 Tbsp reduced sodium soy sauce
- 1 Tbsp. toasted sesame seeds
- 2 Tbsp. chopped ginger. ( I used the ground ginger from the spice aisle....half the amount)
1. Steam broccoli about 2 minutes until bright green. Drain and rinse with cold water to stop cooking.
2. Combine 1/4 cup broth with scallions, garlic, and ginger in food processor/blender and pulse until mixture is finely chopped.
3. Heat 1 tsp. of the oil in a large skillet or wok over med. high heat. Add onions and bell peppers. Saute 5 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Transfer to a bowl and cover to retain heat.
4. Add remaining oil to pan over med. high heat. Add scallion mixture and saute 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add pork and soy sauce and saute 4 minutes or until pork is nearly cooked. Add remaining broth and bring to a boil.
5. Add broccoli to pan and stir until cooked through, about 3 minutes. Add onions and peppers back to pan.
6. Divide between plates and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
