INGREDIENTS | SERVES 4
- 1 pound boneless pork chops
- Orange Marinade
- 2 tablespoons vegetable or peanut oil
- 1 tablespoon minced ginger
- 2 red chili peppers, chopped
- 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
- 3 green onions, green parts only, cut into thirds
- 1 teaspoon Asian sesame oil
Chop the pork into bite-sized pieces. Place the pork in a bowl and add the Orange Marinade. Marinate the pork in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
Heat a wok or skillet on medium-high heat until it is nearly smoking. Add the oil.
When the oil is hot, add the pork. Let it brown for a minute, then stir-fry, stirring and moving the pork around the pan until it is no longer pink and is nearly cooked through.
Push the pork to the sides of the wok and tilt the wok so that the remaining oil runs to the middle. Add the minced ginger and chopped chilies into the oil. Let cook for about 30 seconds, then mix with the pork. Stir in the sugar and green onions. Continue stir-frying until the pork is cooked through; remove from the heat and stir in the sesame oil. Serve hot.
