A quick and easy dinner, that's ready in less than 30 minutes. Fresh squeezed orange juice is best for this dish, but regular orange juice works as well. After adding choy, cook only until tender and still bright green.

Ingredients

  • 1 large pork tenderloin trimmed and sliced into thin slices
  • 6-8 baby bok choy
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger minced

Sauce:

  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 3/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1 tsp orange zest
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1-2 tsp chili garlic sauce, sambal oelek or siracha (1 tsp. for moderate spice or 2 tsp. for spicy-lovers. Can omit if you don't want heat)
  • 1 Tbsp cornstarch

Garnish:

  • Toasted sesame seeds
  • 1-2 green onions sliced
  • Small red pepper, thinly sliced

Instructions

  1. Remove silverskin and trim any fat from pork tenderloin and cut into thin slices. Set aside. (*Tip: to easily remove silver-skin, make a slice into it with a sharp knife and them use a paper towel to pull it off. Repeat until it's all removed). Remove ends from bok choy and wash. Chop, if desired or leave in whole stalks. Set aside.
  2. Heat 1 Tbsp. oil in frying pan over medium-high heat. Add pork and cook until no pink remains. Add garlic and ginger and cook, stirring, for another minute. Add sauce and bring to a boil. Scatter bok choy over top and continue cooking, tossing, until bok choy is tender, but still a nice, bright green. Garnish with toasted sesame seeds, red pepper slices (if usinand sliced green onions.
  3. Serve as is, or over rice.
