Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    1 pound (16 ounces) pork roast or pork tenderloin, fat trimmed and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
    1 tablespoon canola oil
    2 cloves garlic, smashed and chopped
    1 cup shredded carrots (about 2 large carrots)
    1 cup cremini mushrooms, sliced
    1/4 Napa (Chinese) cabbage, shredded (about 2 cups)
    2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
    1 teaspoon whole-grain mustard
    1 teaspoon sesame oil
    2 tablespoons natural peanut butter
    1/2 cup hot water

Tips

You can cut your prep time in half by chopping all of your vegetables--and even the meat--ahead of time.

If you have a food processor, use the slicing attachment to make slicing the vegetables a breeze.

This recipe costs $7.30--that's less than the cost of one Chinese takeout entree, and you get two servings of vegetables per person.

NOTE:
When a recipe calls for hot water, heat it on the stove or in the microwave. Never use hot water from your tap to cook. It can contain sediment and minerals.


Directions

Place a large skillet over medium-high heat, then add the canola oil. When the oil is hot, add the pork. Cook, stirring often, until the pork is no longer pink.

Remove the pork from the skillet and set aside.

Lower heat to medium and add the carrots, garlic, cabbage, and mushrooms. Cook for 3-4 minutes, stirring often. Meanwhile, combine the soy sauce, mustard, sesame oil, and peanut butter in a small bowl. Pour in the hot water and whisk with a fork until smooth. Pour the sauce over the vegetables and add the cooked pork back to the pan. Cook for two minutes, until sauce starts to bubble. Serve over whole-grain noodles or brown rice (calories not included.)
Serving size is 1 heaping cup.
