Pork ‘n’ Pea Pod Stir-Fry

A spicy citrus sauce coats tender strips of pork and crisp snow peas in this speedy stir-fry from Jane Shapton of Irvine, California. "We like this dish extra spicy, so I use a tablespoon of red pepper flakes," Jane notes.

    3 servings


  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons minced fresh gingerroot
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

    It was okay for favor, but would not make again.

    Maybe this would be better without the orange.

    This was really good! I served it over rice and it made more than 3 servings, probably closer to 5. Didn't mind though because I'll bet the leftovers will be great!
