Teriyaki Pork Stir-Fry

I have found that when it comes to dinner, you can never go wrong with stir-fry. Aside from being delicious, it’s relatively quick and easy to make with very little preparation needed. As such, I have several stir-fry recipes in my repertoire using both pork and chicken and various different flavor like teriyaki, Jamaican Jerk, Cajun and sweet and sour, to name a few. Obviously, if you use the same seasonings over and over, it would get old. With so many options available, there’s really no need to limit yourself. While it’s difficult to decide which stir-fry recipe is my favorite, this one is up there near the top.

6 boneless pork loin chops, cut into thin strips
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 onion, sliced thinly
1 red bell pepper, sliced thinly
1 green bell pepper, sliced thinly
1-1/2 cups sugar snap peas
1 - 8 oz. can bamboo shoots
1/2 cup teriyaki sauce
2 Tbsp. rice vinegar
2 tsp. cornstarch
2 tsp. water
Hot, cooked rice

In a skillet or wok, heat oil and stir fry the pork and season as desired. Remove the pork and set aside, leaving behind the juices in the skillet. In the same skillet, stir fry the onion, peppers, peas and bamboo shoots for 3 to 5 minutes. Return the pork strips to the pan with any liquid in bowl. Add the teriyaki sauce and vinegar; stir. In a small bowl, combine the cornstarch and water well. Pour into pan with pork and vegetables, stirring as you add. The sauce will get thicker and have a more glossy appearance. Stir well to coat the meat and vegetables with sauce. Serve over rice.
