Coins of peeled broccoli stalks add a faint sweetness and crunch to savory pork. Round out the meal with fiber-rich brown rice.

  • In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 teaspoon oil over medium. Working in two batches, cook pork until browned on one side, 1 to 2 minutes (pork will cook more in step 4). Transfer to a plate and set aside; reserve skillet.

  • Add remaining teaspoon oil, garlic, and scallion whites to skillet. Cook, stirring occasionally, until scallions wilt, 1 to 2 minutes. Add broccoli and 1/2 cup water; cover and cook until broccoli is crisp-tender and water has evaporated, 2 to 4 minutes.

  • Add pork (with any juices) and stir-fry sauce to skillet. Cook, stirring, until pork is cooked through and sauce has thickened, 1 to 2 minutes. Top with scallion greens.

Cook's Notes

Broccoli stalks are as delicious as the florets -- use a vegetable peeler to remove the tough skin.

I made this recipe with some modifications to make it paleo-friendly (substituted coconut aminos in place of the soy sauce and arrowroot powder in place of the cornstarch). I also added a couple teaspoons of sambal oelek which gave the dish a wonderful sweet/spicy flavor. Delicious.

Heeding other comments, I added 1/4 cup of Hoisin sauce to the OJ, soy sauce , and rice wine vinegar. Perfect!!

Made it and loved it! Even my preschooler and toddler gobbled it up. Only difference was I added some thinly sliced carrots for color.

I used chicken stock instead of water, but I liked the orange juice.

I had the same problem. I want to try it again but don't know what to replace the orange zest and orange juice with. I usually love citrus but this was not right.

I too have subscribed from the first issue and this was not a good recipe. It was very easy, but it was bland. The juice and the vinegar did not complement each other. Perhaps if you left out the vinegar and added a small amount of sugar. My husband asked me to throw away the leftovers, because he didn't want to eat it again. This was disappointing because I like to cook on the weekends for fast weeknight reheating. It was a waste.

This was the first dud recipe I've made from Everyday Food and I've got the first issue so I think I speak from experience! The flavors did not go together.

This is awesome! I left out the orange and the rice wine vinegar but it was still great. Reminds me so much of Chinese beef and broccoli. This is most definetly a keeper. Loving the latest issue of Everyday Food I found it in too. :)
