Quick Facts

Servings: 3
Garlic, sherry, hoisin sauce, and almonds flavor diced pork in this quick Chinese stir-fry. The secret to this quick-cooked dish is cutting the pork into 1/2-inch pieces. Hoisin sauce is a mixture of soybeans, garlic, chile peppers, and spices. It can be found in the Asian section of the supermarket. A small amount of dry sherry is called for in the pork recipe. You can buy small bottles or splits of sherry at most liquor stores.

Ingredients

  • Stir-Fried Diced Pork1/4 cup dry sherry
  • 4 medium cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 Tbs chopped fresh ginger or 1 teaspoon ground
  • 3/4 lb pork tenderloin, visible fat removed and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 2 Tbs cornstarch
  • 1 Tbs hoisin sauce
  • 1 Tbs water
  • 2 tsp canola oil
  • 1 cup sliced celery
  • 2 Tbs slivered almonds
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 scallions, sliced (about 1/2 cup)
  • Chinese Noodles4 oz steamed or fresh Chinese noodles
