Ingredients

  • 1 lb boneless pork loin or tenderloin cut in 1/2-in/1.3 cm pieces
  • 3 cups snow peas cut in half
  • 2 carrots thinly slices
  • 2 green onions/scallions cut in 1/2-in/1.3 cm pieces
  • 1/2 tbs balsamic vinegar
  • 3 cloves garlic finely minced
  • 3 tbs oil
  • pinch of salt
  • pinch of sugar
  • 1 tbs sesame seed-optional

Sauce

  • 2 tbs balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbs soy sauce
  • 3 tbs ketchup

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, toss the pork with the 1/2 tbs balsamic vinegar and a pinch of salt.
  • Mix all sauce ingredients in another bowl; set aside.
  • Heat 2 tbs of the oil in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add the pork and stir fry until pork is nicely browned and cooked through; about 5 minutes. Remove the pork to a plate.
