Sweet glaze flavors simple stir-fried pork


The combination of soy sauce, honey and sherry adds a sweet glaze to this stir-fried pork tenderloin. I added Chinese noodles and broccoli florets to complete this easy meal. These noodles can be found dried in the Asian section of the market or steamed in the produce section. They only need a few minutes to cook.

You can use angel hair pasta instead.

I use a small amount of sherry with soy sauce. If you don’t have sherry on hand, you can buy it in small bottles or splits in a wine store. Or use unsalted chicken broth instead.

Helpful Hints:

  • You can use regular sesame oil instead of toasted sesame oil.
  • If using dried noodles instead of fresh, boil 2 to 3 minutes longer.
