Pork and Broccoli Stir Fry

Pork and Broccoli Stir-Fry! If you love Asian food, you'll love this simple and delicious dinner recipe. Lots of flavor!!

I think this will be the last Asian food recipe I’ll share for a little bit…

I just wanted to make sure you had lots of options for the upcoming Chinese New Year. I think I’ve decided on the Honey Sesame Chicken, this next recipe, along with some Fried Egg Rolls and Cream Cheese Wontons (a recipe I have yet to share with you but it’s FAB!!) I may have to make some Avocado Bacon Egg Rolls too just because they are delicious, and I’m craving them – ALL.THE.TIME!! ;D

I’m thinking we’ll have to have some friends over to help us eat because there are just too many things I want to make and we’ll need help eating it. I’m used to celebrating with my family (yes we celebrate Chinese New Year – it gives us just another excuse to have Chinese food).

This next recipe is one that my mom tried out, and it comes from Martha Stewart. As with most recipe my mom tries out, this one was another hit with the family. Doesn’t it look YUMMY?!

Oh yeah!! I LOVE broccoli in with my Chinese food. It’s one of those veggies I hated as a child and LOVE LOVE LOVE as an adult. 🙂

Here’s the recipe so you can try it too…

My mom only needed to make a few modifications to the original. They said they would be adding this in with some of our “regular” Chinese food recipes. I’m sad they will be celebrating without me this year, since I’m in Texas now, but I’m glad it’s forcing me to figure out how to make this stuff all on my own!! 😉

    We didn’t like this one at all. The orange zest and vinegar were very overpowering. I ended up adding a bunch of sugar so it tasted something like orange chicken, but I couldn’t cover up the strong vinegar taste. Also your instructions say to add a 1/2 cup of water, but the ingredient list calls for chicken broth.

    Great recipe with a small modification. I have to agree with the previous reviewer that it probably would of been too much vinegar using a 1/2 cup. I used a 1/4 cup vinegar and added1/2 TB. of organic sugar. It was perfect! Definitely make sure you use fresh orange juice and zest it is a key component to this dish. Husband had two helpings. Also when you add the pork and sauce back in make sure to crank the heat slightly so the sauce bubbles and thickens. Stir it all together, lower the heat to low, cover, and give maybe a minute to come all together before serving. Delicious.

    just made. holy cow, way to much vinegar. had to add a ton of sugar to counterbalance. I’d change the recipe if I were you.
