This is one of our favorites. I once got it almost done and discovered I had no cashews. I substituted peanuts and it was good. We like the cashews best though.

Too much onion vs. broccoli and the flavor was nothing special. Had to add some corn starch to thicken the sauce so it could stick to the pork and veg. Definitely better stir fry recipes out there. Will not make again.

my boyfriend loved this recipe! its a keeper. it is a good recipe for when you run out of ideas to cook dinner. we follow the recipe as shown served with steam rice, but instead of cashews we used peanuts not as good if we would of had cashews in the pantry but it will do. i also added carrots i love this vegetable!

Outstanding! We had already started baked potatoes, so we put this over them (no rice of course) and, although, I just had the dish without the potato, my husband & our friend said it was spectacular - cultural whiplash aside :) The sauce was juicy, not thick, but that wasn't anything that bothered me. I liked the freshness of it, and the flavors were well-balanced. I used frozen, fresh ginger & grated it & it was fine. I also cooked the onions just 5 mins before adding a bit more cooking spray to the pan & the broccoli (with the onions) & finished cooking them for 3-4 more minutes (saved a few minutes & didn't hurt recipe at all. I didn't have the green onion - but we didn't miss it. I used plain sesame oil (not dark-didn't have it.) I forgot to add the red pepper till we had already started eating, then added it & it really added a lot. HIGHLY recommend this dish!!! Everyone gave it 5 stars & agreed we would have been thrilled to have this is a nice restaurant

It's a good, solid stir fry. It could be made with chicken, tofu, or no meat at all. In which case, I would add another cup of broccoli and maybe some carrots. I also soaked the pork in the soy sauce and a tablespoon of rice vinegar 20 minutes before.
