In this classic Asian-American dish, you make your own sweet and savory pork marinade from hoisin, soy, and rice vinegar (with a touch of sugar). Our secret ingredient? Cornstarch - it makes the marinade stick and the sauce extra thick. We serve it alongside fluffy Jasmine rice and add cashews for nutty flavor and the perfect crunch.

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Thoroughly rinse produce and pat dry. Stem, core, and slice red bell pepper into thin strips. Trim and halve green onions, separating white parts from green parts. Cut white parts into 1" pieces, and thinly slice green part on an angle. Rinse pork chops, pat dry, and cut into 1" cubes. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together hoisin, soy sauce, rice vinegar, sugar, half of the cornstarch and ½ cup of cold water.

    Cook the Pork

    Heat 1 tsp. of olive oil in a medium pan over high heat. Combine diced pork in a mixing bowl with a pinch of salt and sprinkle half of the cornstarch over, tossing to coat evenly. Add pork to hot pan. Allow pork to brown on first side for 2-3 minutes, then stir often and cook for 4 more minutes. Transfer to a plate and set aside.

  • Step 4 - Stir-Fry the Vegetables

    Stir-Fry the Vegetables

    In the same pan in which the pork was cooked, add 1 tsp. of olive oil. Add white parts of green onion, carrots, and bell peppers. Cook 3-4 minutes, stirring often, until vegetables just begin to soften, but not brown.

  • Step 5 - Finish the Stir-Fry

Stir mixture together and cook 1 more minute until sauce is thick and velvety and pork has reached a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees. Stir in half of the cashews. Remove from heat and prepare to serve.
