Ingredients

  • block of tofu
  • tray of lean pork – loin ususally – sliced  thin into small strips 1″ x 1/2 ”  x 1/4″  – even smaller – will cook faster.
  • ginger – 2 thin slices
  • small onion sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 1/2 cup of shredded cabbage
  • Sause: 1/4 C shoyu, 1/8 C sugar or splenda, 1/4 c wine, piece of crushed ginger

In a skillet, brown pork and garlic in some oil on medium heat for a minute until browned – but  not cooked.  With pork you don’t want to overcook it or it gets tough.   When pork loin is just cooked  it should be juicy and tender.   Hint – remove the browned pork from the pan to a bowl.

Add onion and garlic, tofu and sause and mix together

Top with cabbage

Cover and simmer until the cabbage is just getting tender and past being crisp and everything is absorbing the flavor of the sause .   Mix in the pork.  The idea here is not to overcook the pork, or undercook the cabbage.

There are many variations of this – the main thing is the pork and tofu.

Kelly tried this the other day and I think the pork came out a little overcooked… So I updated the recipe to watch out for this…
