Szechwan Pork

Have you ever noticed what a bargain large pork roasts are? Generally, there is plenty of meat for three entrees. That is why I made the Triple Play Marathon Pork Roast. Just like the runner in ancient Greece, this goes a long, long way! One meal can be barbecue flavored Pulled Pork. Another can go south of the border and become Carnitas...chipotle and cola.

Tonight, we are going Asian with Szechwan Pork. Here is the recipe from the Triple Play section of the e-book. Make sure to use the sesame oil. It really makes a difference in this recipe. Since the meat is already cooked, this meal goes together in minutes.

Szechwan Pork

1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 Tablespoons soy sauce
2 Tablespoons Splenda or equivalent sweetener
1 Tablespoon rice vinegar
2 teaspoons sesame oil, stirred into 1/8 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup chicken broth
12 ounces pork

Combine all ingredients and blend well. Heat pork in a skillet. Pour sauce over meat and stir-fry until well blended. Serve with stir-fry vegetable blend or wrap in lettuce.
