Cubed firm tofu adds wonderful texture to this Asian-inspired, stir-fried pork and leek dish flavored with hoisin sauce, sherry vinegar and sesame oil. Serve with a side of steamed rice.

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 pound pork loin, cut into 1 1/2-by-1/4-inch strips
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • large pinch of crushed red pepper
  • 1 large leek - halved and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 cup chicken stock or low-sodium broth
  • 1/2 pound firm tofu, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
  • 2 teaspoons sherry vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoons Asian sesame oil

Directions

  1. Place 1 tablespoon of the vegetable oil in a large sauté pan over high heat. Once the oil begins to shimmer, sprinkle the pork with salt and pepper and then place in the pan; cook for 2 minutes and then remove and set aside.
  2. Pour the remaining vegetable oil into the pan and add the garlic and crushed pepper once hot. Cook the mixture for 1 minute and then stir in the leek and 1/4 cup of the stock. Cook, covered, for an additional 2 minutes before pouring in the remaining stock and bringing the mixture to a simmer.
  3. Stir in the tofu, cooked pork, hoisin, vinegar and sesame oil; cook for 1 minute and then serve immediately.
