Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 2.5-lb pork tenderloin
  • ½ cup soy sauce
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 small zucchini, chopped
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp ground ginger
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 4 stalks of scallion, finely chopped
  • ¼ cup white wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar splenda
Instructions
  1. Chop the pork tenderloin into bite-size chunks and place them in a large bowl with the soy sauce. Use your hands to make sure each piece of pork is well-coated with soy sauce. Let the mixture marinate for 5 minutes.
  2. Chop your garlic, scallion, zucchini and bell pepper.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the garlic, scallion, white wine vinegar and brown sugar splenda and set aside.
  4. Get out a large skillet and add your oil, butter and ground ginger.
  5. Cook on medium high heat for 30 seconds, so the ground ginger begins to flavor the oil and butter.
  6. Turn the stove up to high.
  7. Remove the pork from the soy sauce and add it to the skillet. Reserve any soy sauce that hasn't been absorbed by the pork. We are going to add it to the skillet later on.
  8. Cook the pork for approximately 5 minutes, until the meat is slightly browned on most sides.
  9. Push the pork to the outer rim of the skillet so that it is no longer in the hottest part of the pan. You don't want to overcook the pork.
  10. Add the zucchini and bell pepper to the center of the skillet and cook for approximately 3 minutes, until the vegetables start to brown. Stir the vegetables occasionally, making sure not to disturb the meat around the outside of the pan.
  11. Add the reserved soy sauce and the scallion mixture to the pan.
  12. Cook for approximately 3 minutes, until the vegetables are cooked through but still crisp, stirring occasionally.
  13. Enjoy!
