This is so easy, taste great and good for you, too!


2 tablespoons Vegetable oil
4 stalks celery; diagonally sliced
1 onion; thinly sliced
1/2 pound pork; or other meat
1 cup mushrooms; thinly sliced
1 green or red bell pepper; seeded and sliced thin
1 cup bean sprouts
1 cup Beef stock
1 tablespoon Cornstarch
2 tablespoons Soy sauce
2 large green onions; diagonally sliced
salt; to taste
black pepper; fresh ground, to taste

Original recipe makes 4



Cut the pork (or other meat) across the grain into small, thin strips.

In a large, heavy skillet (cast iron works best) or in a wok, heat the oil over high heat until it is smoking hot. 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.

Excellent recipe. Made it without mushrooms, over noodles. Perhaps the meat could do with a bit of garlic and ginger.

The recipe sounds interesting - think I would add more vegetables and less meat - will add to 'make soon'

This recipe is great. I make it often and without meat. Serve it with brown rice and crunchy noodles. Also use a variety of veggies, what ever I have on hand. Yummy!
