I found this in a Rachael Ray magazine and did not want to lose it! It was one of the "on a budget" meals. Suggestion was to add a diced pear just before serving.

How To Make ginger pork and cabbage stir-fry

  • 1
    In a bowl, combine pork, cornstarch, sesame oil and 1 teaspoon salt - you can use less salt. Let marinate 10 minutes.
  • When lacking fresh ginger and garlic, substitute ginger in a tube and garlic in a jar!
    In a wok, heat 1 1/2 tbsp. canola oil over medium high heat. Add ginger and garlic, cook, stirring until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  • 3
    Add pork in a single layer. Cook without stirring until browned on the bottom - about 2 minutes. Then continue to cook, stirring for about another minute. Transfer to bowl.
  • 4
    Heat remaining oil. Add cabbage, pepper and scallion. Cook until crisp-tender - about a minute. In a small bowl, mix rest of cornstarch with cold water and ponzu sauce. Push veggies to the side, pour water mixture in the center, stir until thickened. Stir in pork, season to taste. Serve with rice.
