  • 2 boneless pork loin chops (about 5 ounces each), cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 4 ounces fresh snow peas
  • 1/4 cup sliced sweet red pepper
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Hot cooked rice, optional


  1. Sprinkle pork with salt and pepper. In a skillet, cook pork in oil until juices run clear. Remove and keep warm. In the same skillet, saute the peas, red pepper, onions, garlic and ginger for 2 minutes. Return pork to the pan.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the water, peanut butter, sugar, soy sauce and cayenne until smooth. Pour over pork mixture; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 1 minute. Serve over rice if desired.
