Pork Chop Suey

Day two of blogging recipes!

Pork Chop Suey
1 lb boneless pork tenderloin
2 cups sliced celery
1 cup sliced onion (omitted for my recipe)
1 cup fat-free beef broth
1 tbsp lite soy sauce
1/4 tsp salt (optional)
2 1/2 tbsp cornstarch
1/4 cup water
1 tbsp molasses
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1 can (16 oz) bean sprouts, drained and rinsed or 1 lb fresh (I used fresh)

Cut pork into 1 inch strips, about 1/4 inch thick. Brown pork in a large skillet that has been sprayed with nonstick cooing spray. (I used extra virgin olive oil.) Add the next five ingredients, cover, and simmer for 5-10 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix cornstarch, water, molasses, and ginger. Stir into hot mixture and bring to a boil, stirring constantly until thickened.

Add bean sprouts and heat thoroughly. Serve over noodles or quick-cooking brown rice. (I used brown rice.)

Makes 5 Cups (4 servings)

I served this with a fabulous, easy salad. :)

Add to that, I finally got back to the gym today and it was awesome. I felt really good for going even though I only did 30 minutes on the elliptical... I burned 300 calories! Did a few lunges at home, and plan to resume my weight training tomorrow. :)
