  • 1 pound pork loin, trimmed of excess fat
  • 1 pound broccolini or Chinese broccoli, trimmed and cut crosswise into 2-inch pieces
  • 1 red bell pepper, ribs and seeds removed, cut into thin strips
  • 1 handful of green beens chopped into 1 in pieces
  • 3 or 4 green onions, trimmed and cut crosswise into 2-inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons gluten-free soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • Kosher salt
  • 3 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons peeled fresh ginger, minced
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • ¼ teaspoon red-pepper flakes, as desired
  • Cooked white rice, for serving

Directions:
Put a pot of salted water on the stove to boil for the greens.

Cut pork into slim, bite-sized pieces about an inch long, and season with ½ teaspoon salt.

In a small bowl, mix soy sauce, vinegar, and sugar; set sauce aside.

Heat a teaspoon oil in a large skillet over medium-high.

Add half the ginger, pepper flakes, and pork. Cook, stirring, until pork is no longer pink. Transfer to a plate.

Add another teaspoon of oil to the pan, and cook the remaining ginger, pepper flakes, and pork; transfer to plate.

Cook green beans in a medium pot of boiling salted water until crisp, but tender, about 4 minutes. Drain well, and dry with paper towels.

Add remaining teaspoon oil to the skillet. Add beans, bell pepper, and 2 tablespoons water; cook over high heat, stirring often, until peppers are tender, about 2 minutes.

Add pork mixture and reserved sauce. Cook, stirring, until pork is coated, about 1 minute. Top with cilantro, as desired, and serve immediately, over rice.
