A quick and healthy fix when you just don't know what to do with left-over pork chops!
- 2 tablespoons sesame oil
- 1⁄4 onion, chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 -1 1⁄2 lb left-over pork chop
- 1 cup stir fry vegetables (I prefer snow peas and carrots, but broccoli would be good too!)
- 6 tablespoons honey
- 1⁄4 cup soy sauce
- 1⁄4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (more or less depending on heat preference)
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ginger
- 2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
- Cut the left-over pork chops into thin strips at a slight bias.
- Heat 1 tablespoons seame oil over medium heat. Add garlic and onion and sautee until tender.
- In the meanwhile, mix ingredients for the sauce in a small bowl or measuring cup.
- Add pork to the garlic and onion and cook until warmed through
- Add stir fry veggies and cook for about 2 minutes more, adding the sauce at the last minute. (A little cornstarch can be added here if you want the sauce thicker).
- Serve over your favorite rice or noodles.
Excellent way to use leftover pork. The sauce was a little too sweet for me, so next time I would reduce the honey and increase the soy sauce, but that's just a matter of personal taste. Thanks for sharing!
Delicious. Made as directed, except used l whole onion, sliced and more garlic ( at our house there is no such thing as too much garlic). I did double the sauce and was glad I did. By the way, 12 Tbls. honey is 6 oz. or 3/4 cup. There is no way I was going to measure all that honey by the Tbls. Ha. We enjoyed this very much. Quick and easy and delicious!
Left over pork chops can be awful but this recipe is very nice. I used less honey as personal preference. Thank you for a great idea for 'plan overs'!
