    Here's a little something I whipped up to use up some apricot preserves- it's sweet, hot, and savory.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 78.07 ml soy sauce
    • 118.29 ml apricot preserves
    • 59.14 ml rice vinegar
    • 4.92 ml habanero sauce (for the brave- otherwise, 1 tsp red pepper flakes is a good alternative)
    • 29.58 ml grated garlic
    • 29.58 ml grated fresh ginger
    • 14.79 ml cornstarch
    • 680.38 g pork loin or 680.38 g tenderloin, cut into bite-sized strips
    • 14.79 ml sesame oil
    • 226.79-453.59 g chopped assorted fresh vegetable (some goods ones are onion, bell pepper, broccoli, snow peas, mushrooms- go nuts)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Combine first seven ingredients well, set aside half of mixture and refrigerate.
    2. 2
      Combine the other half of the soy sauce mixture with the pork in a mixing bowl.
    3. 3
      Cover pork mixture with plastic wrap and refrigerate. Allow to marinate for at least one hour.
    4. 4
      Heat a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat and add sesame oil.
    5. 5
      When oil is hot, but not smoking, add pork mixture and cook until just barely cooked through- approximately 4-6 minutes.
    6. 6
      Remove pork from skillet/wok with a slotted spoon and put aside in a clean bowl.
    7. 7
      Add the vegetables to the pan and cook, stirring frequently until crisp-tender. You may want to add them in order of density to keep from overcooking some of them (e.g. carrots first, then broccoli, then mushrooms last).
    8. 8
      When the vegetables are just cooked enough, add the pork back to the skillet/wok and then the reserved half of the soy sauce mixture.
    9. 9
      Cook, stirring a couple of times, for about one minute more, until sauce is thickened.
    10. 10
      Serve, over steamed rice if desired.

      This was very nice but I had to make, I felt like, some major changes in the spices to suit our taste. I went with a heaping tablespoon of garlic and only about 1/2 tsp of dried fresh ginger. Because we like sesame oil in small amounts I decreased that to 1 tsp. We loved the soy/apricot preserve flavors mixed together. We used red, yellow and orange papers with a small purple onion as our veggies and served over rice. Some of our guest ate potatoes as they are not fans of rice. Glad I had both. Thanks for sharing. Made for Spring PAC 2014.
