Ingredients

FOR THE STIR FRY SAUCE

  • 2 tablespoons gochujang use less for milder stir fry sauce
  • 1.5 tablespoons hot paprika or use 1/2 tablespoon cayenne + 1/2 tablespoon sweet paprika – you can use other spicier chili powders as well
  • 4 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar or use honey
  • 1 teaspoon fresh minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon fresh minced ginger
  • ½ cup chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch mixed with 1 tablespoon water

FOR THE PORK STIR FRY

  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil or use olive oil or vegetable oil
  • 1.5 pounds pork tenderloin cut into bite-sized pieces (or use boneless pork chops)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 8 ounces sugar snap peas
  • 1 large bell pepper chopped
  • 1 jalapeno pepper chopped (or use your favorite spicy chili pepper)
  • For Serving: Chopped green onion, toasted sesame seeds, spicy red pepper flakes

Instructions

MAKE THE STIR FRY SAUCE

  • Whisk all of the ingredients together in a medium-sized bowl until well combined. Set aside until ready to use.

MAKE THE PORK STIR FRY

  • Heat the oil in a large pan or wok to high heat. Add the pork and cook for 2 minutes, stirring often.
  • Add the peas and chopped peppers. Cook, stirring often, for 2 minutes, or until the vegetables begin to soften.
  • Add the stir fry sauce and stir. Bring to a quick boil, then simmer for 3 minutes, stirring a bit, or until the pork is cooked through and the vegetables are cooked to your liking. The stir fry sauce will thicken in the pan and coat the pork and vegetables.
  • Garnish and serve. I like my pork stir fry with either steamed white rice or stir fry noodles.
