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.
- 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
- 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.
- 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.
- Stir in the tofu, cooked pork, hoisin, vinegar and sesame oil; cook for 1 minute and then serve immediately.
