This healthy pepper and pork stir-fry recipe has a citrusy mojo sauce. Because stir-fries cook up quickly, have all the ingredients prepped and next to the stove before you turn on the heat. Serve over brown rice or rice noodles.

  • 1/4cup finely chopped cilantro
  • 1tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

  • 3cups 1- to 2-inch strips red bell pepper
  • 1bunch scallions, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces

Instructions

  1. To prepare sauce: Combine lime juice, orange juice, cilantro, olive oil, cornstarch, salt, cumin, oregano and pepper in a small bowl. Place near the stove.
  2. To prepare stir-fry: Heat a 14-inch flat-bottom carbon-steel wok over high heat. (You’ll know it’s hot enough when a bead of water vaporizes within 1 to 2 seconds of contact.) Add 1 tablespoon oil and swirl to coat. Add pork and stir-fry until just cooked, 2 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a large plate.
  3. Swirl in another 1 tablespoon oil; add bell pepper and scallions. Stir-fry for 2 minutes.
  4. Swirl in the remaining 1 tablespoon oil; add garlic and bok choy. Stir-fry until the vegetables are tender, 2 to 4 minutes more.
  5. Return the pork to the wok. Add the reserved sauce and cook, gently stirring, until well coated and hot, 1 to 2 minutes.

Tips

Refrigerate the sauce (Step 1) for up to 3 days.
