Ginger Pork Stir Fry

We had no plan for dinner last night but I had this pork tenderloin that had been sitting in the fridge for three days. I wanted something simple, really simple. So I googled pork stir fry and this recipe from Taste of Home was the third in the search results. I had no time to think about it and anyway I had all ingredients at hand so I made it. I served it with coconut rice. There were no left overs. Have a wonderful weekend. My Friday is full of sunshine!!!!!

Combine the sauce ingredients in bowl (cornstarch. broth, soy sauce, sugar, ginger, garlic and pepper flakes) and stir until smooth. Set aside.

Heat one tablespoon oil in a wok or large skillet and stir-fry pork over high heat for 2-3 minutes

until no longer pink. Remove and keep warm.

In the same pan, stir-fry vegetables in remaining oil until crisp-tender.


Stir the stir fry sauce and add to the vegetables.

Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1 minute or until thickened.

Return the pork to the pan and heat through.

Serve with rice and, if desired, sprinkle with cilantro
