  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon sherry vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon cider vinegar
  • 1 lb pork tenderloin thinly sliced and cut into 1/2-inch(1cm) wide strips
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 teaspoons grated gingerroot
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated orange rind
  • 3/4 teaspoons hot pepper flakes
  • 1 sweet yellow pepper cut into thin strips

  • 3 cups snow peas (about 9 oz/275 g), trimmed and cut in half diagonally
  • 3/4 cups roasted cashews whole

Method

In bowl, whisk together soy sauce, sherry, cornstarch, sugar, sesame oil and vinegar. Add pork, tossing to coat; let stand for 20 minutes.

In wok or large nonstick skillet, heat half of the oil over high heat; stir-fry garlic, ginger, orange rind and hot pepper flakes until fragrant, about 15 seconds.

Add yellow pepper; stir-fry until softened, about 2 minutes.

Add snow peas and cashews; stir-fry until snow peas are tender-crisp, about 2 minutes. Transfer to bowl.

Add remaining oil to wok; stir-fry pork until browned, about 3 minutes.

Add broth and snow pea mixture; stir-fry until thickened and pork is no longer pink, 1 to 2 minutes. Sprinkle with salt.
