Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 30 min.


4-6 servings

Restaurant eating is a treat for us. So when we enjoy a meal out, I try to re-create it at home. My family enjoys my version of this Chinese dish even more than the original.


  • 1 pound boneless pork loin chops (1/4 inch thick)
  • 4 green onions, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 can (14 ounces) bean sprouts, drained
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced celery
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced carrots
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced green or sweet red pepper
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 cup dry roasted peanuts
  • Hot cooked rice or thin spaghetti


  1. Cut pork into 1/2-in. strips. In a skillet over medium-high heat, stir-fry pork, onions and garlic in oil for 2-3 minutes or until pork is no longer pink. Add bean sprouts, celery, carrots and green pepper; stir-fry for 2-3 minutes.
  2. Combine cornstarch, broth and soy sauce until smooth; add to skillet. Stir in red pepper flakes. Bring to a boil; boil and stir for 2 minutes. Stir in peanuts. Serve over rice or spaghetti.
