This recipe is from my husbands side of the family. They don't use measurements or amounts when they cook, so I will do my best to give approximates. You can adjust accordingly. This is a good, easy, fast recipe that is great for a weekday meal. We serve it over rice and chinese noodles. Yum!
- 1 green pepper, diced
- 2 stalks celery, chopped
- 1⁄2 medium onion, chopped
- 1 (8 ounce) can water chestnuts, drained
- 2 (6 ounce) cans mushrooms, drained (I use fresh if I have them)
- 1 teaspoon chicken bouillon
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1 1⁄2 lbs pork, cut into bite size pieces
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- salt and pepper
- Season pork pieces with salt and pepper. Brown pork over medium high heat. Once browned, add enough water to cover the pork. Bring to boil.
- Add onion, celery, green pepper, mushroons and water chestnuts. Cook until the veggies are tender.
- At this point you may need to add more water depending on the amount of sauce you desire.
- Add chicken bullion and soy sauce ( to taste).
- Mix the cornstarch with a bit of water and add to pan. Sauce will thicken. (adjust amount of cornstach based on how thick you want the sauce).
- Adjust seasoning, serve over rice and/or chinese noodles.
Versatile and delicious! Love how it uses ingredients that I typically have on hand. I seasoned pork with about 1/4 teaspoon of pepper, used about 1 1/4 cups water, added 3 tablespoons of soy instead of 2, and used the stated amount of chicken bouillon. I put soy and bouillon in right away with the veggie/meat so it would saturate the meat while simmering. I ended up using 2 tablespoons of cornstarch to thicken but that depends upon the water amount. Made for my PAC Spring 2010 baby!
