Pork and Tofu Stir-Fry

Pork and Tofu Stir-Fry

Servings: 4


1/2 pound lean pork boneless loin or leg
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1 teaspoon low-sodium soy sauce
1 cup Chinese pea pods (about 3-1/2 ounces)
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon finely chopped gingerroot or 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms (about 3 ounces)
1/4 cup sliced green onions (with tops)
2 teaspoons oyster sauce
1 teaspoon low-sodium soy sauce
5 ounces firm tofu, cut into 1/2-inch cubes

Trim fat from pork loin. Cut pork into 2x1x1/8-inch slices. (For ease in cutting, partially freeze pork about 1-1/2 hours.) Toss pork, cornstarch and 1 teaspoon soy sauce in medium glass or plastic bowl. Cover and refrigerate 20 minutes. Heat 1 inch water to boiling in 1-1/2- quart saucepan. Add pea pods. Cover and boil 1 minute; drain. Immediately rinse with cold water; drain.

Heat oil in 10-inch nonstick skillet or wok over high heat. Add pork mixture, gingerroot and garlic; stir-fry about 3 minutes or until pork is no longer pink. Add mushrooms and onions, stir-fry 2 minutes longer. Add remaining ingredients; stir-fry until heated through and mixed thoroughly.
