This can also be made in a large skillet, and is equally delicious using chicken *or* pork, I have made it with both and I have to say that I prefer the chicken better. You can double this recipe, but you will probably have to brown the meat in two batches depending on the size of your wok or skillet, and I strongly suggest to double this, it is very good! You can adjust all ingredients amounts to taste.
- 2 teaspoons cornstarch
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1 lb boneless pork (cut into strips) or 1 lb chicken (cut into strips)
- 2 teaspoons cornstarch
- 1⁄4 cup soy sauce
- 1⁄4 cup cold water
- 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- 1 tablespoon peanut oil
- fresh sliced mushrooms (any amount desired)
- 2 cups fresh broccoli florets (or to taste)
- 5 green onions, sliced
- 2 tablespoons minced fresh garlic (can use more or less)
- 3 teaspoons minced fresh ginger (or to taste)
- 1 teaspoon dryed red pepper flakes (or to taste)
- 2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
- hot cooked rice
- In a medium bowl whisk together 2 teaspoons cornstarch with 2 tablespoons soy sauce until smooth; add in the chicken or pork strips, toss to coat and let sit for about 30 minutes.
- In another bowl whisk 2 teaspoons cornstarch with soy sauce, water and hoisin sauce; set aside for a couple of minutes.
- Heat sesame oil and peanut oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat for about 2 minutes (oils must be hot!).
- Add in chicken or pork mixture and stir-fry for about 2 minutes (if you are doubling the recipe you will have to do in batches transfering one batch to a plate).
- Add in sliced mushrooms, broccoli florets, green onions, garlic, ginger and red pepper flakes; stir-fry for 2 minutes.
- Stir in the hoisin sauce mixture; stir-fry for 1 minute or until thickened.
- Add in the orange juice; stir until heated through.
- Serve over cooked rice.
This was pretty good... The only thing I did not add was the crushed red pepper. I was making it for kids as well as adults and I didnt want it to be too spicy. I think it needed a little more sweetness. Next time I am going to try adding some brown sugar to the sauce mixture. Thanks for posting!
Made it with chicken. Very good.
I made a double batch with chicken breast meat, substituting broccoli florets for the sliced water chestnuts and adding a couple tbsps of coarsely grated orange zest. Served as a one-dish meal, it made 5 servings. A really easy, flavorful selection.
