  • 1 cup beef broth (reduced sodium is best)
  • 2 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 3 Tbsp light soy sauce
  • 2 tsp dark soy sauce (optional but recommended)
  • 2 Tbsp light brown sugar
  • 1/2 - 1 tsp sambal oelek chili paste
  • 1 1/2 tsp fresh ginger grated
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes (reduce amount or omit for a much milder dish)


  • 1 lb. boneless pork chops, sliced into thin strips against the grain (about 1/4" thick)
  • 2 Tbsp vegetable oil, divided
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 tsp finely minced fresh ginger
  • 1 cup snow peas
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 cup mushrooms, sliced
  • drizzle of toasted sesame oil
  • minced fresh cilantro, for garnish
  • chopped green onions, for garnish
  • crushed peanuts, for garnish
  • 8 - 12 oz hokkein stir fry noodles (udon or other stir fry noodles will work as well) (optional)



  • In a small bowl, combine cornstarch and broth until smooth. Stir in the soy sauces, brown sugar, sambal oelek, ginger, and red pepper flakes; set aside.


  • In a wok or large skillet, stir-fry pork in 1 Tbsp oil over MED HIGH heat for 2-3 minutes, until browned. Remove to a plate. 
  • In the same pan, add remaining 1 Tbsp oil, garlic and ginger, cooking for 30 seconds, then add stir-fry vegetables and cook until crisp tender.
  • Stir broth mixture and add to the vegetables. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1 minute or until thickened. 
  • Add stir fry noodles and pork; heat through. Drizzle with sesame oil, then top with garnishes and serve.



Pork tenderloin can be substituted for the pork chops if desired.
I like to add a sprinkle of black pepper before serving, but it's completely optional.
