Looking for a great Chinese restaurant near you? How about right in your very own kitchen! Sometimes I think it’s more fun to stay in and create a restaurant-worthy dish than go out. I have a few staple Asian sauces in my fridge and I use them to make all different kinds of dishes. So if you like Chinese food, I’d suggest stocking your fridge with soy sauce, sesame oil, oyster sauce, sriracha, and hoisin sauce.
Sesame Ginger Pork Stir Fry – Serves 4-6, Cook Time – 30 minutes
1 medium onion, chopped
1 carrot, chopped
1 celery rib, chopped
1 teaspoon ginger, diced
3-4 cloves garlic, diced
1 pound pork loin, cut into 1 inch cubes
¼ cup flour seasoned with 1 teaspoon salt and ½ teaspoon cracked black pepper
1 ½ – 2 teaspoons oyster sauce
1 tablespoon sesame oil, plus 1 tablespoon more for sautéing
2-3 teaspoons teriyaki sauce
½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 green onions, sliced for garnish
Sesame seeds, to garnish
Mix oyster sauce, 1 tablespoon sesame oil, and teriyaki sauce together and set aside.
Heat 1 tablespoon sesame oil in a wok or medium size sauté pan over high heat. Sauté the onion, carrot, and celery until the onions start to soften, about 7 minutes.
Meanwhile, toss the cubed pork in the seasoned flour. Shake off any excess flour. Add the ginger, garlic, and pepper flakes to the pan and cook for a minute. Put the pork into pan and let cook 1 minute on each side so the meat is nicely browned and cooked through. Add the sauce mixture and stir until everything is coated. Take off the heat and garnish with green onion and sesame seeds. Serve with rice and bok choy.
