5 scallions, chopped, white parts separated from green
2 (8 oz.) boneless pork chops, cut into thin strips
1/4 cup plus 1 Tbsp. dry-roasted peanuts, chopped
How to Make It
In a small bowl, mix broth, soy sauce, vinegar and cornstarch together. Set aside.
Warm oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. Add ginger and white part of scallions. Cook, stirring constantly, until scallions are just softened, about 1 minute.
Add pork and cook, tossing with tongs, until firm and no longer pink, 5 minutes.
Stir in sauce and 1/4 cup peanuts. Cook, stirring constantly, until sauce is thickened and pork is heated through, 2 minutes. If sauce is too thick, add broth, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until it reaches desired consistency. Top with green part of scallions and 1 Tbsp. peanuts.
This recipe is delicious, easy, and fast to make. I changed it a bit by using chicken instead of pork and by (1) adding snow peas (about two handfuls added with meat to soften), (2) adding a red bell pepper with the scallions (about half the pepper), and (3) doubling the amount of chopped peanuts. Due to the additions, I ended up using a bit more chicken stock, vinegar, and cornstarch so that I had enough sauce for a bit of brown rice. YUM!!
This meal was VERY GOOD. I used chicken broth and 3 thick boneless pork chops, thinly sliced. It's easy to put together and had all the ingredients on hand. Put a good handful of peanuts in, not chopped, just before serving. A definite repeat.
