1 pound pork tenderloin
2 tablespoons cornstarch, divided
1/3 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
1/4 cup orange juice
2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
1 teaspoon chili garlic sauce
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons canola oil
2 cups matchstick-cut carrots
1/4 cup water
2 teaspoons bottled ground fresh ginger (such as Spice World)
2 teaspoons bottled minced garlic
1/3 cup diagonally cut green onions
Sliced green onions (optional)
How to Make It
Cut pork into 2 x 1/4-inch-wide strips. Combine pork and 1 tablespoon cornstarch in a bowl; toss well. Combine remaining 1 tablespoon cornstarch, broth, and next 4 ingredients (through salt).
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add pork to pan; sauté 3 minutes or until desired degree of doneness; stir frequently. Remove pork from pan.
Heat oil in pan. Add carrots, 1/4 cup water, ginger, and garlic to pan; cook 1 1/2 minutes, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Return pork to pan. Stir in broth mixture; bring to a boil. Cook 30 seconds. Stir in 1/3 cup onions. Serve immediately. Garnish with sliced onions, if desired.

Easy and basic stir-fry that is great just as is. But can be changed up to taste with different match-stick veggies like snow peas and carrots or peppers and carrots. Liked your suggestion of nuts, used unsalted peanuts.
An outstanding recipe for everyday use, thrifty and delicious. My children love it. I have enjoyed the recipe unaltered, and I also sometimes make it with the addition of many vegetables to "stretch" it. It goes particularly well with a couple of orange peppers and with mushrooms, but I've also had good luck adding cabbage, celery and bean sprouts.
