How to make this recipe
In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients except the pork, canola oil, scallions, lettuce and rice. Add the pork and turn to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of canola oil. Add the strips of pork in batches, taking care not to crowd the pan, and stir-fry over moderately high heat until cooked through and browned in spots, about 2 minutes per batch. Add more oil to the skillet as necessary.
Transfer the pork to a platter and garnish with scallions. Serve with lettuce leaves and steamed rice.
Slightly off-dry German Riesling.
