Pork Stir-Fry with Tangy Tangelo

Pork Stir-Fry with Tangy Tangelo

Ingredients

(cooking time: 45 min; 4 servings)

  • 2 tangelos
  • Toasted sesame oil – 3 tsps, divided
  • Pork tenderloin – 1 lb, trimmed, cut into thin strips
  • 2 shallots, medium-sized, sliced thinly
  • Garlic – 2 cloves, minced
  • Fresh ginger – 2 tbsps, minced
  • Red pepper - ¼ tsp, crushed
  • 2 bell peppers, sliced thinly
  • Celery – 2 stalks, sliced thinly
  • Reduced sodium soy sauce – 2 tbsps
  • Rice vinegar – 1 tbsp
  • Cornstarch – 2 tsps

Instructions

  • Zest ½ of one tangelo. Halve and juice both tangelos to make ½ cup juice. 
  • Pre-heat a large skillet or a wok. Add 2 tsps sesame oil, let warm up, then add pork and stir for 3 minutes until almost done. Move pork to a plate; set aside. 
  • Pour the final tsp sesame oil into the skillet. Add shallots, ginger, tangelo zest, crushed pepper, and garlic. Stir for 1 min, add bell pepper and celery slices. Continue stirring until veggies are tender, yet still crisp (two mins). Pour tangelo juice and soy sauce into the stir-fry, let simmer for a minute. 
  • In a cup or a small bowl, whisk rice vinegar with starch swiftly and pour into the stir-fry. Add cooked pork and all the juices from the plate. Stir to heat the pork well through until thick - it usually takes about a min. Serve immediately.
