  • 1/2 500-g pkg spaghetti ort fetuccine pasta
  • 1 bunch broccoli
  • 1 large carrot
  • 1 yellow bell pepper , cut into julienne strips
  • 4 centre-cut, fast-fry pork chops , preferably boneless

  • 1/2 cup teriyaki sauce
  • 1 tbsp dark sesame oil
  • 1 1/2 tsp hot chili-garlic sauce
  • 4 garlic cloves , minced
  • vegetable oil

  • Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Add pasta and cook according to package directions until al dente, 8 to 10 min. Meanwhile, cut broccoli florets from stalks. Keep stalks for another use. Cut florets into small pieces. Using a vegetable peeler, peel long, wide strips from carrot. Prepare pepper. Trim fat from pork. Cut out bones if there are any. Slice meat into thin bite-sized strips. In a bowl, stir cornstarch with 2 tbsp (30 mL) teriyaki until dissolved. Stir in remaining 1/3 cup (75 mL) teriyaki and sesame oil, chili-garlic sauce and garlic.
  • Lightly coat a large frying pan, preferably non-stick, with oil and set over medium-high heat. When hot, add pork. Stir often until no pink remains, 3 to 4 min. Stir teriyaki mixture, then pour in. Add broccoli, carrot and pepper. Pour in water. Stir often until veggies are done as you like, 3 to 4 min. Once pasta is cooked, drain well and place in a large bowl. Add pork mixture. Toss to coat.
