Tangelo Pork Stir-Fry

Tangelo Pork Stir-Fry

This pork and pepper stir-fry uses strips of tangelo zest and bright tangelo juice, which offers a little sunshine on a midwinter night. Tangelos, hybrids of tangerines and pummelos (or grapefruit), are often labeled as Minneolas or Honeybells.

Serves 4

Prep Time 45 min

Total Time 45 min.

Ingredients

  • 2 tangelos, such as Minneolas or Honeybells
  • 3 teaspoons toasted sesame oil, divided
  • 1 pound pork tenderloin, trimmed and cut into thin strips
  • 2 medium shallots, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 2 red bell peppers, thinly sliced
  • 2 stalks celery, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Using a vegetable peeler, remove zest from tangelos in long strips. Cut the strips lengthwise into very thin pieces. Cut the tangelos in half and squeeze enough juice from them to get 1/2 cup.

Step 2

Heat a large wok or skillet over medium-high heat. Swirl in 2 teaspoons oil, then add pork and cook, stirring, until just cooked, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate.

Step 3

Add the remaining 1 teaspoon oil to the pan along with shallots, garlic, ginger, crushed red pepper and the zest. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add bell peppers and celery and cook, stirring constantly, until crisp-tender, about 2 minutes. Stir in the tangelo juice and soy sauce; bring to a simmer. Cook for 1 minute.

Step 4

Whisk vinegar and cornstarch in a small bowl, then pour it into the pan along with the pork and its juices. Cook, stirring often, until thickened and bubbling and the pork is heated through, about 1 minute.
