Makes: 4 servings, about 1 cup each

Active Time:

Total Time:

Ingredients

  • 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

Preparation

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
