brocc_stirfr_l

Skip the take-out and make this at home instead.

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 1 pork tenderloin (about 1 pound), quartered lengthwise and thinly sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 scallions, white and green parts separated and thinly sliced
  • 1 head broccoli (about 1 pound), cut into bite-size florets, stalks peeled and thinly sliced

Directions:

  1. In a medium bowl, combine orange juice, soy sauce, vinegar, and cornstarch; set stir-fry sauce aside.
  2. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 teaspoon oil over medium. Working in two batches, cook pork until browned on one side, 1 to 2 minutes (pork will cook more in step 4). Transfer to a plate and set aside; reserve skillet.
  3. Add remaining teaspoon oil, garlic, and scallion whites to skillet. Cook, stirring occasionally, until scallions wilt, 1 to 2 minutes. Add broccoli and 1/2 cup water; cover and cook until broccoli is crisp-tender and water has evaporated, 2 to 4 minutes.
  4. Add pork (with any juices) and stir-fry sauce to skillet. Cook, stirring, until pork is cooked through and sauce has thickened, 1 to 2 minutes. Top with scallion greens.
