Pork Cabbage Stir-Fry

The ginger comes through nicely in this colorful napa cabbage stir-fry that is lower in fat and sodium than many. It's great served over steamed rice or cooked noodles. —Marcie Nor of Macungie, Pennsylvania

    4 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/4 cup white wine or chicken broth

  • Hot cooked rice
  • Sesame seeds, optional

Directions

  • In a small bowl, combine the cornstarch and sugar. Stir in wine or broth and soy sauce until smooth; set aside.
  • In a large nonstick skillet or wok, stir-fry pork in oil until no longer pink. Add the carrots, garlic and ginger; stir-fry for 2 minutes. Add cabbage; stir-fry until cabbage is wilted.

Test Kitchen Tips
  • To make a fresh garlic clove easy to peel, gently crush it with the flat side of a large knife blade to loosen the peel. If you don’t have a large knife, you can crush the garlic with a small can. The peel will come right off.
  • Canola oil is high in monounsaturated fat, a type that helps to decrease blood cholesterol levels, and low in saturated fat, which can increase blood cholesterol. Olive oil would also taste great in this recipe and has the same healthy-fat properties.

      Very nice flavor, I had green cabbage instead of napa and it worked nicely.
