Pork Lo Mein
- 1/2 lb pork boneless loin
- 2 cups fresh sugar snap pea pods
- 1 cup baby-cut carrots cut lengthwise into 1/4-inch sticks
- 1/2 package 9-oz size refrigerated linguine, cut into 2-inch pieces
- 1/3 cup Progresso™ chicken broth from 32-oz carton

- 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
- 1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
- Toasted sesame seed* if desired
Trim fat from pork. Cut pork with grain into 2×1-inch strips; cut strips across grain into 1/8-inch slices (pork is easier to cut if partially frozen, about 1 1/2 hours). Remove strings from pea pods.
In 3-quart saucepan, heat 2 quarts water to boiling. Add pea pods, carrots and linguine; heat to boiling. Boil 2 to 3 minutes or just until linguine is tender; drain.
In small bowl, mix broth, soy sauce, cornstarch, sugar, gingerroot and garlic.
In 12-inch nonstick skillet or wok, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add pork and onion; stir-fry about 2 minutes or until pork is no longer pink. Stir broth mixture; stir into pork mixture. Stir in pea pods, carrots and linguine. Cook 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Sprinkle with sesame seed.

Who doesn’t love fried rice? It’s always a favorite when going out for Chinese food, so why not make it yourself?

Good Luck Pork and Cabbage
Slow cookers are super when you’re too busy to stand watch over your stove top. Well, our slow cooker recipe for old world-inspired Good Luck Pork and Cabbage, popular for good fortune in the New Year, is sure to make your life in the kitchen easier.
- 4 cups shredded cabbage
- 2 apples coarsely chopped
- 1 small onion chopped
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
- 1/2 cup apple juice

In a 5-quart slow cooker, combine cabbage, apples, onion, brown sugar, apple cider vinegar, apple juice, and 1/2 teaspoon salt; mix well.
Evenly sprinkle roast with remaining salt and the pepper. In a large skillet, heat oil over high heat and brown roast on all sides.
Place roast in slow cooker over cabbage mixture, cover, and cook on low heat 6 to 8 hours, or until fork- tender.
Sweet and Sour Pork
We found that if we coat our raw pork with cornstarch instead of flour, it makes for a crispier coating. That’s just another one of those little tips that restaurant chefs don’t usually share!
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
- 2 to 2-1/2 pounds boneless sirloin pork loin roast cut into bite-sized pieces
- 2 green bell peppers cut into 1/2-inch strips
- 1 8-ounce can pineapple chunks, undrained
- 1 cup sweet-and-sour sauce
Heat oil in a large skillet over high heat.
Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine cornstarch, salt, and ground red pepper; mix well. Add pork and toss to coat.
Add pork to skillet and sauté 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden brown and no pink remains.
Add bell peppers, pineapple chunks, and sweet-and-sour sauce; cook 5 to 7 minutes, or until peppers are crisp-tender and sauce is hot. Serve immediately.
