DIRECTIONS

  • Combine first seven ingredients well, set aside half of mixture and refrigerate.
  • Combine the other half of the soy sauce mixture with the pork in a mixing bowl.
  • Cover pork mixture with plastic wrap and refrigerate. Allow to marinate for at least one hour.
  • Heat a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat and add sesame oil.
  • When oil is hot, but not smoking, add pork mixture and cook until just barely cooked through- approximately 4-6 minutes.
  • Remove pork from skillet/wok with a slotted spoon and put aside in a clean bowl.
  • 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).
  • 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.
  • Cook, stirring a couple of times, for about one minute more, until sauce is thickened.
  • Serve, over steamed rice if desired.
