Quick Ginger Pork
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 20 min.
As soon as I saw this recipe, I knew it would need a little work, to amp up the flavors. So, I marinated the pork in the soy and ginger, increasing the amount of ginger to 1/2 teaspoon, in a covered dish in the fridge for 30 minutes. That made the pork very tender and just the right amount of flavor. I used an Asian flavored 90 second rice, and did add the suggested options of green onions and sesame seeds. I liked the idea of using the meat cut into strips instead of chunks. Instead of cold water to mix with the cornstarch, I used cold coffee, and that made the flavors deeper and more rich. Good idea, just needed some tweaking. Now it is one of our favorites.
This is OK, but bland. I added onion and was glad I did. Maybe some red pepper flakes would be helpful, but I will never know. My husband said,"don't make it again".
Love this! Quick and simple - perfect for a busy day! I had leftover pork loin, and added some broccoli florets, and the family loved this. No leftovers, which is always a sign that I can add this to our rotation. Thank you!
