Sizzling Stir Fry
3 cups broccoli, chopped
3/4 cup chicken broth, divided
1/2 cup chopped green onions
2 tablespoons chopped garlic
2 tablespoons chopped ginger
2 teaspoons olive oil, divided
1 cup chopped yellow onion
1 red bell pepper, halved, seeded and diced
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 pound boneless pork tenderloin, cut in strips, 1/2 inch wide and 2 inches long
1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
Steam broccoli until bright green but still firm. Drain; rinse with cold water to stop cooking; drain again. Combine 1/4 cup of the broth, the green onion, garlic and ginger in food processor and pulse until mixture is minced. Set aside.
Heat 1 teaspoon of the oil in a large saute pan. Add onion and bell peppers; saute 5 minutes or until vegetables are just tender. Transfer to a bowl.
Add remaining oil to pan over medium-high heat. Add broccoli mixture and saute for about 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add pork and soy sauce and saute for four minutes or until pork is nearly cooked. Add the remaining 1/2 cup of broth and bring to a boil. Add broccoli and stir until broccoli is cooked through, about 3 minutes. Add onion and bell pepper back to pan. Divide between 4 plates and garnish with sesame seeds.
