The Secret Ingredient

Ingredients

  • 1 pound boneless pork tenderloin, trimmed
  • 3 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce, divided
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch, divided
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha sauce
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • ¼ to ½ teaspoon Maggi® Granulated Chicken Flavor Bouillon
  • 3 ½ teaspoons peanut or canola oil, divided
  • 2 leeks (green part only), split lengthwise and sliced into ½-inch lengths (2 ½ to 3 cups total)
  • 2 to 3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
  • ½ teaspoon toasted sesame oil (optional)
  • 2 cups hot cooked rice for serving

Make It

Step 1

Combine 1 tablespoon soy sauce and 1 teaspoon cornstarch in medium bowl; add pork and toss to coat. Set aside to marinate for 10 minutes.

Step 2

Whisk water, remaining 2 tablespoons soy sauce, sriracha, remaining 1 teaspoon cornstarch, sugar and bouillon in small bowl. Set aside.

Step 3

Heat 2 teaspoons peanut oil in wok or large, nonstick skillet over medium-high heat; swirl to coat. When oil is hot and shimmering (not smoking), add pork. Stir-fry for 1 ½ to 3 minutes or just until no longer pink. Remove from wok.

Step 4

Heat remaining 1 ½ teaspoons peanut oil in same wok; swirl to coat. Add leeks; stir-fry for about 3 minutes or until almost tender. Add garlic and ginger; stir-fry for about 30 seconds or until fragrant. Add pork back to wok.

Step 5

Stir in soy sauce mixture. Reduce heat to medium; cook for 1 to 2 minutes or until sauce thickens. Turn off the heat; stir in sesame oil. Serve with rice.
