Pork Stir Fry with Peanut Sauce

I make a stir fry with peanut sauce all the time! The sauce can be made a few different ways {with or without the hoisin, soy etc.} and you can add whatever you have around to make the stir fry. Any vegetables really work {peppers are a must, any cabbage (napa is nice!), baby corn, water chestnuts, bean sprouts, carrots, scallions…you get the point!} and also any protein, I have used shrimp, tofu, chicken and pork for this and it all turns out great with peanut butter, yes, peanut butter!

3 T. oil

2 baby bok choy chopped

1 red bell pepper chopped

3 cloves of garlic minced

1/2 cup of peanut butter

3 T. hoisin sauce

2 T. soy sauce

2 tsp. sesame seed oil

1/2 pound pork, thinly sliced

Basmati rice or rice noodles cooked

cilantro

red pepper flakes

Salt

In a large wok or skillet, heat the oil over high heat. Add the bok choy and red pepper with a dash of salt. Turn around the pan and cook until softened a bit. Add the pork and garlic, continue to stir around in the pan until pork is cooked through. In a small bowl combine the peanut butter, (place it in the microwave for a few seconds to make it easier to stir) hoisin, soy and sesame oil, stir to make the sauce and then pour it over the stir fry and mix to coat the pork and veggies. Serve over rice and add some chopped cilantro and red pepper flakes to taste.
