I have recently decided that coleslaw mix is my best grocery friend. It is insanely cheap, healthy, and saves prep time. The recipe below is a nice showcase of this produce-section staple.
- Prepare 1 pound of pork tenderloin by…
- Slicing into strips
- Seasoning with Chinese 5 spice mix
- Using 2 T. oil, saute meat in 12 inch skillet.
- Once meat is browned but still still rare in the middle, remove from skillet.
- Coat meat with 1/4 cup Hoisin sauce.
- Add a bit more oil to the skillet to saute 8 ounces sliced mushrooms. Cook two minutes.
- Add to mushrooms…
- 1 bag coleslaw mix
- 2 T. chopped ginger
- 2 T. chopped garlic
- Once cabbage starts to wilt, add to skillet…
- 1 cup rice
- 2 cups chicken broth
- Cover and simmer for 20 minutes, or until rice is soft and liquid is absorbed.
- Return pork to skillet, heat through.
- Serve with green onions and chow mein.
Everyone at my dinner table gobbled this up! I used four pork ribeye chops because they were on sale, but you could use whatever cut of pork you prefer—or chicken! If I hadn’t been serving kids, I might have added a bit of crushed red pepper or even some fresh peppers. Otherwise, this was a flavorful, guilt-free meal.
