This sounds great, but I have not made it yet. It is from the Weight Watchers Flex and Core cookbook. The description says it is both sweet and spicy.
- 6 scallions, cut into half inch pieces
- 6 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 (1 1/4 lb) pork tenderloin, trimmed of visible fat and cut into 2 x 1/4 inch strips
- 4 teaspoons sugar
- 1⁄4 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
- 2 tablespoons asian fish sauce (nam pla)
- 1 -2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper, to taste
- Spray a large nonstick wok or high-sided skillet with nonstick spray and set over high heat.
- Add the scallions and garlic; stir-fry until softened, about 1 minute.
- Add the pork and stir-fry until browned, about 3 minutes.
- Transfer the content of the wok to a bowl and set aside.
- Return the wok to the heat and add the sugar; cook, stirring, until melted, lightly browned, and caramelized, about 30 seconds.
- Slowly stir in the broth.
- The caramel may form a hard lump.
- Continue cooking, stirring constantly, until the sugar melts again and the broth boils, about 20 seconds.
- Stir in the fish sauce and pepper, then return the pork, vegetables, and juices to the wok.
- Cook, stirring constantly, until the sauce reduces to a glaze, about 2 minutes.
- Serve at once.
