INGREDIENTS
Servings: 4
Tangelos 
2
Toasted sesame oil
3 tsps, divided
Pork tenderloin
1 lb, trimmed, cut into thin strips
Shallots, medium-sized, sliced thinly 
2
Garlic
2 cloves, minced
Fresh ginger
2 tbsps, minced
Red pepper
 ¼ tsp, crushed
Bell peppers, sliced thinly 
2
Celery
2 stalks, sliced thinly
Reduced sodium soy sauce
2 tbsps
Rice vinegar
1 tbsp
Cornstarch
2 tsps
DIRECTIONS
  1. Zest ½ of one tangelo. Halve and juice both tangelos to make ½ cup juice. 
  2. 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. 
  3. 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. 
  4. 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.
