DIRECTIONS

  • Combine ingredients for marinade in a shallow dish.

  • Mix together cornstarch with the 3 tbsp water in a shallow dish and set aside (will be used as a thickener later).

  • Allow garlic to sizzle briefly, then add pork, and stir-fry for approximately 3 minutes.
  • Remove pork from wok using a slotted spoon and leave any meat juices in the pan.
  • Add broccoli to the wok with the pan juices and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes.
  • Add mushrooms to the wok along with 1/2 tbsp of oil and stir-fry for another minute.
  • Place bamboo shoots and water chestnuts in the wok and mix together, stir-frying an additional minute.
  • Return pork to wok, stirring all together, then add contents of sauce bowl and mix thoroughly.
  • Re-stir thickener in its little dish before adding to wok, then add it to the stir-fry, stirring until the dish is thickened, about 1 more minute.
  • Serve with hot steamed rice.
