  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon salt

How to Make It

  1. Cut pork into 1/4-inch-thick slices.

  2. Combine cornstarch, next 3 ingredients, and, if desired, red pepper in a large zip-top plastic bag. Add pork in batches; seal and toss to coat.

  3. Brown one-third of pork in one-third of oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Drain on paper towels, and repeat procedure twice. Combine cooked pork and chiles in skillet, and cook until thoroughly heated.
