The orange flavor in this marinade goes very nicely with pork, as in Spicy Orange Pork Chops. Use the marinade with ¾ to 1 pound of lean pork, adding 2 teaspoons cornstarch to seal in the other ingredients, if desired.
INGREDIENTS | YIELDS ¼ cup
- 2 tablespoons orange juice
- 1 tablespoon water
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon brown sugar
- ½ green onion, finely chopped
Cut the pork according to the recipe directions. Place the pork in a bowl and add the marinade ingredients. Discard any unused marinade.
If you want to use a marinade as a sauce, add it to the stir-fry in the final stages of cooking. If the marinade was used to marinate meat or poultry, there is a danger that the marinade picked up bacteria from the uncooked meat. You can boil the marinade for 5 minutes to kill bacteria, or you can make a second batch of the marinade, reserving it for the sauce.
