Cashew Pork and Vegetables
Ingredients
1
pound lean boneless pork
1/4
cup orange juice
2
tablespoons bottled hoisin sauce
1/2
teaspoon ground ginger
1/8
teaspoon crushed red pepper (optional)
2
cups fresh pea pods or one 6-ounce package frozen pea pods, thawed
1
tablespoon cooking oil
3
medium carrots, bias sliced, or 1 1/2 cups packaged fresh julienned carrots
1/4
cup sliced green onions (2)
2
cups hot cooked rice
1/2
cup cashews or peanuts
Directions
  1. If desired, partially freeze meat for easier slicing. Thinly slice meat across the grain into bite-size strips. For sauce, stir together orange juice, hoisin sauce, ginger, and, if using, crushed red pepper. Set aside.
  2. Remove strings and tips from fresh pea pods, if using; set pea pods aside. Pour oil into a wok or large skillet. (Add more oil as necessary during cooking.) Preheat over medium-high heat. Stir in carrots. Cook and stir for 2 minutes. Add pea pods and green onions. Cook and stir for 2 to 3 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender. Remove vegetables from wok.
  3. Add half of the pork to hot wok. Cook and stir for 2 to 3 minutes or until no pink remains; remove from pan. Add remaining pork; cook and stir for 2 to 3 minutes or until no pink remains. Return all meat and vegetables to wok. Stir sauce; add to center of wok. Cook and stir until heated through. Stir in rice until coated. Top with nuts.
