Soy Pork and Sides

Because I was hungry.


INGREDIENTS

  • 1 large pork chop, fresh or fully thawed, cut into cubes
  • 1/2-1 cup broccoli florets (fresh or fully thawed)
  • 1 shallot clove, finely minced (can use some onion, instead)
  • 1 garlic clove, finely minced
  • pepper to taste
  • 1/4-1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1 cup penne noodles (or 1 cup prepared white rice)

METHOD

  1. Fill a large pot with water and bring to a boil for the pasta.
  2. In a skillet, add about 1 tsp of your favorite cooking oil (I used olive) and add your pork cubes on med-low heat.  Lid and cook until the pork starts to whiten on the bottoms (about 3-4 minutes), stirring occasionally.
  3. Add the broccoli, garlic, and shallot.  Pepper lightly and stir until well combined (avoid salting as the soy sauce will cover that).
  4. Pour the soy sauce into the pan, just enough to lightly cover everything.  (You may not need even 1/4 cup, depending on the amount you are preparing).  Lid and heat, stirring occasionally, until everything is cooked through.  (This can take 5-20 minutes, depending on the skills of your stove.  Keep an eye out.)
  5. Add your pasta to the boiling water and cook per instructions.
  6. When complete, strain the pasta and add your pork mixture in a bowl.  Enjoy!
