Sizzling Ginger Pork

This is a Biggest Loser recipe and it's FREAKING awesome if you like fresh ginger!!!

1 tsp sesame, canola, or olive oil
8 oz lean pork tenderloin (or skinless chicken breast or lean flank steak) chopped
1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
2 TB finely chopped shallots
2 TB peeled, finely chopped fresh ginger
1/2 cup fat-free, low sodium chicken broth
2 TB low sodium soy sauce
1 TB dark molasses
1 TB Szechuan seasoning mix
1 cup cooked wild rice or brown rice
2 cups steamed broccoli
1 tsp toasted sesame seeds
2 TB chopped cilantro

Heat oil over medium high heat in a nonstick skillet. Add pork and cook until lightly browned but not fully cooked. Remove to plate and cover.

Add onion, shallots, ginger, and half of the broth to skillet. Simmer until vegetables soften, 2-3 minutes. Add soy sauce, molasses, Szechuan seasoning, and remaining broth. Bring to a simmer and return meat to skillet. Simmer 3-4 minutes longer, until meat is just cooked through. Serve over hot rice with broccoli. Garnish with sesame seeds and cilantro.

Serves 2

Notes: If you aren't able to find Szechuan seasoning, you can make your own. 1/2 tsp garlic powder, 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes, 1 tsp ground mustard, and 1 tsp ground coriander.
