A homemade version of a Chinese takeout favorite. Enjoy it on its own, wrapped in lettuce leaves or over rice.

Ingredients

  1/3 cup(s) hoisin sauce   
  2 tsp sesame oil   
  1 tsp minced garlic   
  1 tsp ginger root, minced   
  1 tsp rice wine vinegar   
  1 tsp sambal oelek   
  1 pound(s) uncooked lean pork tenderloin, thinly sliced crosswise and sliced in thin strips   
  1 tsp kosher salt   
  1/4 tsp black pepper   
  4 spray(s) cooking spray   
  8 oz fresh shiitake mushroom, sliced   
  14 oz packaged coleslaw mix (shredded cabbage and carrots)   
  6 medium uncooked scallion(s), chopped   
  3 Tbsp cilantro, fresh, minced   

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, whisk together hoisin sauce, oil, garlic, ginger, vinegar and sambal oelek; set aside. 
  • In a bowl, toss pork with salt and pepper. 
  • Coat a very large nonstick skillet or wok with cooking spray; set over high heat. When hot, add pork (in 2 batches if necessary); stir-fry until lightly browned, about 3 to 4 minutes. Remove to a plate; set aside. 
  • Off heat, coat same skillet or wok with cooking spray; set over high heat. When hot, add mushrooms; stir-fry for 5 minutes. Add slaw mix and reserved sauce mixture; toss to combine. Cook, stirring occasionally, until cabbage wilts, about 4 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in scallions and cilantro; serve mixture on its own or wrapped in large Romaine lettuce leaves. Yields about 1 1/4 cups pork mixture per serving.

Notes

  • You can substitute 3 cups shredded cabbage and 3 cups shredded carrot for the slaw mix.

    Don’t be intimidated by the list of ingredients in the sauce for this recipe. You can find them in the Asian section of most major supermarkets. Once you have them, you can use them in many kinds of stir-fry recipes. You can, however, use a bottled sauce if you prefer (could affect recipe’s PointsPlus value).
