Mango Pork Stir-Fry
There's lots of flavor in this tasty dish. The meat comes out tender, and the mango adds a refreshing flavor.—Lisa Koshinsky, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Cook: 15 min.
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1/2 cup chicken broth
- 3 tablespoons soy sauce

- Stir-fry bok choy stalks in remaining oil for 2 minutes. Add the garlic, ginger and bok choy leaves; stir-fry for 2 minutes. Add water and pepper flakes if desired; cook 2 minutes longer or until bok choy is crisp-tender.
- Stir cornstarch mixture and add to the pan. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Add the green onions, mango and reserved pork; heat through. Stir in sesame oil. Serve with rice.

This was good, but I'm not sure if I would make it again. It was pretty labor -intensive and maybe not worth the effort.
