  • 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

Preparation

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.
