4 servings (serving size: 3/4 cup pork and 1/2 cup rice)
5 ounces green beans, trimmed and halved
1/4 cup water
3 tablespoons hoisin sauce
1 teaspoon cornstarch
Pinch cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
1/2 cup chopped scallions
1/2 teaspoon peeled, grated fresh ginger

1 teaspoon dark sesame oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
Hot cooked rice
How to Make It
Cook green beans in boiling water 5 minutes, and drain. Blend 1/4 cup water, hoisin, cornstarch, and cayenne pepper. Heat vegetable oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1/2 cup scallions and ginger; sauté 30 seconds. Brown pork. Add tofu, and sauté 1 minute. Add hoisin mixture and beans, and cook for 30 seconds. Stir in 1/4 cup scallions, sesame oil, and salt. Serve with rice.
An adequate (I made a recipe for 2 while on a diet) and has good flavor. I doubled the green beans and sauce ingredients and am glad I did. It would have been too dry otherwise. I bought thin sliced pork loin and diced it instead of ground pork and that was an improvement. Tofu - good but pretty flavorless. I cooked 1/2 cup of brown basmati rice to make 1 cup and it made more than that and we couldn't eat it all.
This is one of our favorite recipes and so easy! We tend to substitute one pork chop (sliced) for the ground pork as we like the texture better. I love the flavor of the tofu and my husband loves the pork!
