3 cups pork stir-fry plus 6 cups cabbage


  • ¼ cup hoisin sauce

  • 3 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce

  • 2 tablespoon rice vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon packed brown sugar

  • 2 teaspoon Sriracha sauce

  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil

  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 2 tablespoon canola oil

  • 12 ounce pork tenderloin or lean boneless pork, cut into bite-size strips

  1. For sauce, in a bowl stir together the first eight ingredients (through garlic).

  2. In an extra-large wok or skillet heat 1 Tbsp. of the oil over medium-high heat. Add pork; cook and stir about 4 minutes or until strips are just pink in the center. Remove pork from wok.

  3. Add the remaining 1 Tbsp. oil to wok. Add carrots; cook and stir 1 minute. Add red pepper; cook and stir 2 minutes more or until just crisp-tender. Return pork to wok. Add sauce and Asian pear; cook and stir until heated through. Serve pork mixture over cabbage and top with green onions.

Produce Prep

To prepare Napa cabbage, also called Chinese cabbage, cut off the stem end connecting the leaves. Rinse leaves and shake dry. To shred, cut cabbage crosswise into thin strips, including the thick ribs.
