Stir-Fried Pork and Broccoli with Sweet Sour Sauce

Classic Asian flavors make a perfect foil for pork and broccoli. Serve this easy stir-fry with hot rice or rice noodles.


  • 3 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoon ketchup
  • 4 teaspoon rice vinegar
  • 2 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoon dark sesame oil
  •  bottled hot pepper sauce to taste
  • 3 tablespoon peanut oil, divided
  • 4 Organic Prairie Center Cut Boneless Pork Chops, sliced into strips
  •  salt and pepper
  • 1/2 lb broccoli florets, sliced
  • 1 heaping cup sugar snap peas, strings removed, sliced in half lengthwise

1. Combine sauce ingredients in a bowl and set aside.

2. Heat a very large skillet over high flame for 2-3 minutes. Add 1 tablespoon peanut oil and swirl pan to coat the bottom. Add pork slices, season with salt and pepper and stir-fry until meat is browned, 3-4 minutes. Remove pork to a bowl.

3. Heat remaining 2 tablespoons peanut oil in skillet. Add broccoli; stir-fry over high heat, 3-4 minutes. Add peas; continue to stir-fry another 2-3 minutes. Lower heat to medium, add shallots, garlic and ginger, and stir-fry until vegetables are crisp-tender.

4. Stir in sauce, reserved meat, hot pepper sauce to taste and 1/4 cup water; bring to simmer and cook briefly, stirring, until vegetables are coated and everything is bubbly-hot. Serve immediately, sprinkling each bowlful with sesame seeds.
