Hoisin Pork Stir Fry

Well, there was a split decision on this meal:  I loved it... Chris not so much.  Chris said it was due to the texture of the pork I used, but I thought the fact that I used tenderloin made it so incredibly tender.  The flavor he liked, so I guess that we did agree on that part at least :)

Don't let Chris' opinion stop you though (sorry baby!!), I think it was a fantastic stir fry and perfect for a quick week night meal!

Printable Recipe 
3 Tablespoons hoisin
1 Tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup chicken broth
1 Tablespoon cornstarch
1 Tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon Sriracha
drop of sesame oil
1 garlic clover, finely minced
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1 lbs. pork tenderloin, cut into bite size chunks or strips
1-2 cups snow peas
1 red bell pepper, chopped or cut into strips
1 teaspoon vegetable oil

In a measuring cup or small bowl, mix together the first 9 ingredients (everything except the pork, snow peas, pepper and oil) until well combined.  Set aside.

In a wok or large, deep non-stick skillet, add the oil over medium high heat.  Add the pork and stir fry for 4-5 minutes or just before the pork is fully cooked.  Add the snow peas and bell pepper and stir fry for another 2-3 minutes or until the pork is cooked through and the vegetables are just starting to soften.  Add the sauce mixture and bring to a boil.  Stir to combine everything, remove from heat as soon as the sauce starts to thicken.  Serve over rice.  Enjoy!

Looks tasty! Nice & tender and flavorful. I haven't made stir fry in a while. Heck I even have a brand new bottle of hosin sauce to work with, too!! Might have to break it in with this recipe :)

Your timing is great. I bought some hoisin sauce ages ago and then completely forgot why! YAY for a new recipe to use it. Thanks, girl.

Sorry Chris but I have to agree with Jenn on this one! I already KNOW it's fantastic. I have vowed to make more stir frys. Bought a wok and everything. Just to spite your Chris - I'll make this first! ;)

Jenn, it looks great! And as Mary says- a good use for Hoisin!

I have noticed that strips of pork tenderloin can be a little rubbery under high heat cooking in a wok. Not all the time, but sometimes. I found that if I hit them a little bit with a meat mallet first it keeps them tender.
