Pork and Vegetables Sautéed with Apples
Some people love the taste of ginger; others find it tastes medicinal. If you fall within the “love it” category, feel free to increase the amount of ginger according to your personal taste.
INGREDIENTS | SERVES 4–6
- 2 pounds pork steak, deboned and cut into thin strips
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons dry sherry
- ¼ teaspoon freshly grated ginger
- 3 tablespoons peanut oil
- 1 large yellow onion, diced
- 3 Golden Delicious apples, peeled and thinly sliced
- 4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
- 1 12-ounce package steam-in-the-bag stir-fry mixed vegetables
- OPTIONAL: 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
- Freshly ground black pepper to taste
- 4 green onions, chopped
Place the pork steak, soy sauce, sherry, and ginger in a resealable plastic bag. Shake to evenly coat the meat. Let marinate in the bag for 15 minutes.
Add the oil to a wok or large, deep nonstick skillet and bring it to temperature over medium-high heat.
Drain the marinade from the meat; add the meat to the skillet and sauté for 3 minutes. Add the onion and continue to sauté for another 3 minutes, or until the meat is done and onion is transparent.
Add the apple slices and sauté until the apples begin to turn brown.
Push the contents of the pan to the side and add the garlic; sauté the garlic for 30 seconds before stirring it into the meat mixture.
While the meat and apples are cooking, microwave the stir-fry vegetables according to the package directions for crisp-tender. Drain off any liquid from the vegetables.
Add the vegetables, toasted sesame oil (if using), and pepper to the pan and toss with the meat mixture. Garnish with the chopped green onion.
