Nutrition News: Eating Well Is Key
2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
2 teaspoons chili garlic sauce
1 pound pork tenderloin, trimmed and cut into thin strips
1/4 cup cornstarch
3 tablespoons canola or avocado oil
12 ounces green beans, trimmed
1/4 cup scallions, thinly sliced, plus more for garnish
2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
Whisk jam, soy sauce, sesame oil and chili-garlic sauce in a small bowl. Set aside. Toss pork with cornstarch in a medium bowl until no cornstarch remains at the bottom of the bowl. Heat oil in a large flat-bottom wok or cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat until it shimmers. Add the pork, and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned and crisp, 6 to 8 minutes. Stir in green beans, and continue to cook, stirring often, until well coated, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Remove from heat, and add scallions and sesame seeds. Toss to combine. Sprinkle with more scallions, if desired.
