Wednesday's Recipe - Apple Stir-fried Pork

Wow! Wednesday again already! This week's recipe is a favorite in my house. It's an adaptation of a Frugal Gourmet recipe I tried more than a decade ago. As this is served over steamed rice, I've included a very simple method for perfect rice every time.

Apple Stir-fried Pork

1/2 lb. very lean boneless pork chops, cut into thin strips
1 tablespoon reduced sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon sherry (I prefer Taylor New York)
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1 large yellow onion, halved and sliced
2 large apples, cored and sliced (I prefer Gala, but have also used Yellow Delicious)
2 tablespoons olive oil

In a medium bowl combine pork, soy sauce, sherry, garlic powder, and ginger. Set aside to marinate for 10-15 minutes. Cook rice.
Preheat large wok over medium-high for 2 minutes. Add olive oil and swirl to coat pan. Add pork mixture and stir-fry until no longer pink, about 6-8 minutes. Add sliced apples and onions. Stir and cook until apples are tender and onions are translucent.
Serve over steamed rice. Makes 3-4 servings.

Steamed Rice: Combine 1 cup long- cooking, long grain rice with 1 1/2 cups water in medium saucepan (or 1 part rice to 1 1/2 parts water). Cook over medium-high heat until craters form in the surface. Remove from heat and cover. Let stand 5 minutes.

I highly recommend making enough for lunch leftovers!
