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.
