Last night's pork and a microwave oven make this mild main dish a snap to prepare. "We love Chinese food, and this is a favorite in our home," explains Gloria Bisek of Deerwood, Minnesota.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon chicken bouillon granules
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger, optional
  • 1 can (8 ounces) sliced water chestnuts, drained
  • 1 can (8 ounces) bamboo shoots, drained
  • 1 package (6 ounces) frozen snow peas, thawed
  • 1/2 cup sliced white onion
  • 1/2 cup sliced green onions
  • 2 cups sliced cooked pork tenderloin (1/2 inch thick and about 1 pound)
  • Hot cooked rice

Directions

  1. In a large microwave-safe bowl, combine the cornstarch, soy sauce, bouillon, water and ginger if desired; stir until smooth. Cover and microwave on high for 2 minutes, stirring once.
  2. Add the water chestnuts, bamboo shoots, peas and onions. Cover and cook on high for 4-5 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in pork; cook 2-3 minutes longer or until heated through. Serve over rice.
