  • 2 375-g pork tenderloins
  • 2 to 3 tsp chili-garlic sauce
  • 2 tsp grated fresh ginger , or 1 tsp bottled minced ginger
  • 2 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp dark or roasted sesame oil
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • 3 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 3 green onions
  • 1/3 cup sour cream


  • Slice pork into 1/2-inch (1-cm) rounds, about 20 pieces. In a medium-size bowl, stir 2 teaspoons (10 mL) chili-garlic sauce with ginger, soy sauce and sesame oil. Taste and add 1 more teaspoon (5 mL) chili-garlic sauce, if you like. Add pork pieces and stir to coat well. Cut onion in half lengthwise. Place cut-side down on a cutting board. Slice each half into long thin strips. Core and seed pepper. Slice into long thin strips.
  • Heat 2 teaspoons (10 mL) oil in a large frying pan set over medium-high heat. Add half the pork. Cook until golden brown, from 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove to a plate. Repeat with remaining pork, then remove to same plate. Loosely cover with a tent of foil to keep warm.
  • If necessary, add remaining teaspoon (5 mL) oil to pan. Add onion and green pepper. Stir-fry until tender-crisp, from 1 to 2 minutes. Pour in wine. Using a wooden spoon, scrape up any brown bits from bottom of pan. They add flavour to sauce. Bring mixture to a boil.
  • Return all of pork to pan along with any meat juices. Reduce heat to low. Simmer, uncovered, turning meat and stirring occasionally, until meat is hot, about 3 minutes. While meat is heating, thinly slice green onions diagonally. Stir sour cream and green onions into pan, just until blended. As soon as it is hot, remove from heat and serve immediately. Great spooned over rice or broad noodles. Accompany with broccoli or green beans.
