My husband and I made this dish- it was delicious! We like a lot of veggies so we used broccoli,red pepper,carrots, added garlic and doubled the sauce ingredients. We cut the pork into strips instead of bite size pieces and used olive oil instead of butter. We like hot,spicy food but found 1/2 tsp of red pepper flakes was plenty hot and tasty.We put it over Japanese soba noodles.
We love to cook and would definitely make this dish again.
LOVED IT! The only change I made was a few drops of sesame oil and a teaspoon of sesame seeds sprinkled on top-We will be having this again, and again......Easy to make and very tasty! Thanks for Posting your Recipe!! Di
Made this for dinner last night and my boyfriend loved it. I doubled the sauce and used chicken stock instead of sherry as well as ground ginger instead of fresh and it still came out yummy. Will definitely make again :)
Somehow forgot the pork when getting groceries, so I made this with chicken, hubby's comment...its a keeper! Awesome taste, easy prep--a great week night busy family dish.
A very nice, simple recipe that can be readily modified by what is in the pantry or fridge. I did cut down on the soy sauce quite a bit, and felt that the soy taste was sufficiently present. Added quite a bit more veggies - sliced onion, more scallion, a touch of garlic, tomato wedges, carrot. Instead of rice I opted for rice vermicelli stirred in and stir-fried for a few minutes at the end. Oh, used oil instead of butter.
Great recipe. I left the meat marinate in soy sauce over two nights and I can say I've never tasted so tender pork. Big success, everyone loved it. I will definitely cook this again soon!
Very good! I doubled the recipe, except used only 2T butter. Used the full amount of crushed red pepper (Penzey's, the good stuff, which tends to be stronger). It was spicy, but the kids were still able to eat it. Served with jasmine rice and hot and sour soup. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
We enjoyed this Szechuan pork recipe for dinner tonight. We served with basmati rice and green beans. The pork had very nice flavor, but there was not enough sauce. I would definitely double the sauce ingredients. 1 tsp of crushed red pepper was perfect for the amount of sauce made. DH thought the ginger should be tripled as he thought it would add a little more kick. This was quick to prep and is a good weeknight meal. Thanks for posting.
This was outstanding! Husband loved it and thats a miracle since he is a meat and potato kind of guy. I would definitly only use about 1/2 tsp of the crushed red pepper. I like the heat but it seemed to take the taste away from the dish. I also am not a big fan of Dry Sherry so I took Annacia's idea and used the chicken broth. Thanks annicia it was a good idea.. This will be served often at my house since it not time consuming and the whole family loved it. Thanks for the recipe Nimz
My boyfriend loved this dish! It was very simple to make and the meat was very tender. Thanks!
