Pork 'n' Pea Stir-Fry Recipe

Pork 'n' Pea Stir-Fry Recipe

You don't need a wok to make this simple stir-fry from Verona Koehlmoos of Pilger, Nebraska. A fast-to-fix sauce coats strips of pork, pretty green onions and crisp-tender snow peas.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 pound boneless pork, cut into 1/4-inch strips
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 package (6 ounces) frozen snow peas, thawed
  • 1 cup thinly sliced green onions
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • Hot cooked rice, optional

Directions

  • 1. In a 2-qt. microwave-safe dish, heat oil at 70% power for 1-1/2 minutes. Add the pork, soy sauce and garlic powder; toss to coat. Cover and microwave on high for 5-6 minutes or until meat is no longer pink.
  • 2. Stir in peas and onions. Cover and microwave at 70% power for 2-1/4 minutes. Combine cornstarch and broth until smooth; gradually stir into pork mixture. Cover and microwave on high for 1-1/2 minutes; stir. Cover and microwave 3-4 minutes longer or until thickened, stirring every minute. Serve with rice if desired. Yield: 4 servings.
