Stir Fried Cashew Pork
original Joelen recipe
1/3 cup hoisin sauce
1/3 cup water
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 pound pork (tenderloin, shoulder, boneless ribs) and cut into bite sized pieces
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoons grated fresh ginger
1 cup roasted unsalted cashews – half coarsely chopped, half whole
1/4 cup fresh whole cilantro leaves
Combine the hoisin sauce, water, soy sauce, and pepper flakes in 1 liquid measuring cup. Heat a few teaspoons of the oil in a large nonstick skillet (or cast iron skillet) over medium high heat until it just starts to smoke. Brown and saute the pork in the skillet and push out to the sides of the pan when done.
Add the remaining oil to the skillet and add the garlic and ginger. Cook the garlic and ginger for a few seconds until fragrant. Pull the pork back to the center of the skillet and add the cashews and hoisin mixture. Cook until the sauce has thickened and remove off heat. Sprinkle with cilantro and serve with steamed rice.
