A spicy citrus sauce coats tender strips of pork and crisp snow peas in this speedy stir-fry from Jane Shapton of Irvine, California. "We like this dish extra spicy, so I use a tablespoon of red pepper flakes," Jane notes.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons minced fresh gingerroot
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 3/4 pound pork tenderloin, cut into 2-inch strips
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1 pound fresh snow peas
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange zest

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, combine the soy sauce, honey, ginger and pepper flakes. Place 3 tablespoons in a large bowl; add the pork and turn to coat. Cover; refrigerate for 1 hour. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade.
  2. Combine the cornstarch, orange juice, vinegar and reserved marinade; stir until blended and set aside. Drain and discard marinade from pork. In a large nonstick skillet or wok, stir-fry pork in oil for 4-5 minutes or until no longer pink. Remove pork and keep warm.
  3. In the same pan, stir-fry snow peas for 2-3 minutes or until crisp-tender. Stir in garlic and orange zest. Stir cornstarch mixture and stir into pan. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Return pork to the pan; heat through.
