DIRECTIONS

  • 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.
