2 Tablespoons Vegetable oil
4 Celery stalks diagonally sliced
1 Onion thinly sliced
1/2 Pound Pork Or Other Meat
1 Cup mushrooms thinly sliced
1 Green Peppers Thinly Sliced*
1 Cup Bean sprouts
1 Cup Beef stock
1 Tablespoon Cornstarch
2 Tablespoons Soy sauce
2 Large Green onions diagonally sliced
Salt to taste
freshly ground black pepper to taste
* or red peppers
Cut the pork (or other meat) across the grain into small, thin strips.
In a large, heavy skillet, preferably of cast iron, or in a wok, heat the oil over high heat until it is smoking hot. Do not leave the pan unattended for even a minute; hot oil can ignite. Add the celery and onion and cook briskly, stirring and tossing furiously, for about 2 minutes.
Add the pork, mushrooms, and pepper and continue cooking over high heat, tossing and stirring all the while, for about 3 minutes more, until the meat is cooked through. Add the bean sprouts and cook, tossing for 1 minute.
Quickly stir the broth, cornstarch, and soy sauce together until blended. Add to the other ingredients along with the green onion, and cook for 1 minute more, until thickened. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and serve over rice.
This recipe serves 4.
