I am not sure why I have been on this Asian influence recently. I have been enjoying the diverse stir fry ideas and altering them a bit. They are quick easy and full of flavor. I know my family will always love a dish of this kind and they have not been disappointed. I guess with life getting so very busy recently doing these simple meals has made my evenings easier to deal with. I hope to get back to my regular cooking and trying new recipes soon. Although I am not hearing anyone complain just yet! Lol Enjoy the recipe.
I am breaking this recipe up into smaller sections, the marinade for the pork loin, let it sit at least an hour, preferably overnight.
2 lb pork loin
We will start with the marinade
For the marinade you will need
1 cup soy sauce
1 cup water
3/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
3 tablespoons distilled white vinegar
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/3 cup dried onion flakes
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
In a medium bowl, mix the soy sauce, water, sugar, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, oil, onions, garlic powder, and ginger. Stir together until sugar dissolves. Voila – marinade! Cover your pork and refrigerate for no less than one hour, but preferably overnight.
Once the pork has marinated as long as you want, place it in the freezer for ten minutes. This will make the meat easier to cut into thin slices. I cut down and across.
For the rest of the meal you will need;
1 onion chopped
2 jalapeño peppers cored and chopped
Green onion* optional
Additional sesame seed for garnish * optional
¼ stick of butter
Vegetables of your choice (I used broccoli, red pepper and yes corn)
I made my sauce ahead of time (utilized my weekend peppering for my weekly meals)
For the sauce you will need to mix the following together.
1 cup honey
1 cup soy sauce
1 cup dry white wine/rice wine
1 ½ teaspoon grated ginger
2 tablespoons minced garlic
2 teaspoons sesame seeds juice from a large orange
Mix all the above together and set aside.
You will need 2 teaspoons of cornstarch and ¼ cup water for when you cook the sauce.
Rice/Asian noodles cooked as the package prescribes.
Melt butter in a saucepan,
Sauté the onion and jalapeño peppers on medium high heat. Add the pork and cook until browned a bit.
Take your sauce and add to the mixture
Add your vegetables
Add the slurry (the starch mixed with the water) this will thicken the sauce up for you.
Serve over noodles and sprinkle with a few chopped green onions and a sprinkle of sesame seeds for a nice presentation.
Enjoy the recipe and use what you like, make it your own meal/recipe!
