Pork Chop Suey
From EatingWell: March/April 2010
Chop suey is often made with bamboo shoots and water chestnuts—add them to this recipe if you wish. Serve with: Udon noodles.
- 1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
- 3 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons molasses, preferably blackstrap
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
- 5 teaspoons cornstarch
- 2 tablespoons canola oil, divided
- 1 pound pork tenderloin, trimmed, halved lengthwise and cut into 1/4-inch-thick pieces
- 1 medium onion, slivered
- 1 medium red bell pepper, thinly sliced
- 3 cups mung bean sprouts (see Note)
- 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
- Combine broth, soy sauce, molasses and pepper in a medium bowl. Transfer 2 tablespoons of the mixture to a small bowl; stir in cornstarch until combined. Set aside.
- Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add pork and cook, stirring frequently, until most of the pink is gone, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
- Increase heat to medium-high. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil, onion, bell pepper, sprouts and ginger and cook for 3 minutes. Pour in the broth mixture and bring to a boil. Cook, stirring, for 3 minutes. Reduce heat to medium; add the reserved cornstarch mixture and pork (and any accumulated juice) and cook, stirring, until slightly thickened, about 1 minute.
Tips & Notes
- Note: Mung bean sprouts (germinated mung beans), often simply labeled “bean sprouts,” are white with a light yellow tip and are thicker than more common alfalfa sprouts.
