  • 8 oz (250 g) Ontario Pork Tenderloin or Boneless Pork Loin Chops
  • Pinch each salt and pepper
  • 4 small Ontario Bok Choy
  • 8 oz (250 g) soba noodles or whole wheat spaghetti
  • 2 tbsp (25 mL) vegetable oil
  • 1 Ontario Onion, diced
  • 1 clove Ontario Garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) minced fresh gingerroot
  • 2 Ontario Carrots, thinly sliced diagonally
  • 1 Ontario Sweet Red Pepper, julienned
  • 2 cups (500 mL) small Ontario Broccoli Florets
  • 1 cup (250 mL) sliced Ontario Mushrooms
  • 1 cup (250 mL) sodium-reduced chicken broth
  • 2 tbsp (25 mL) sodium-reduced soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) chili garlic sauce


  • 2 Ontario Green Onions, thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup (75 mL) fresh Ontario Coriander Leaves


Cut pork into thin strips; season with salt and pepper. Cut leafy ends off bok choy and slice leaves thinly; cut stem ends in half lengthwise and slice (keep separate from leaves). Set aside.

Bring large pot of water to boil; cook soba noodles according to package directions until tender. Drain well, briefly rinse and divide among wide soup bowls.

Meanwhile, in large nonstick skillet, heat 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the oil over medium-high heat. Stir-fry pork until no longer pink, about 2 minutes. Transfer to plate.

Add remaining oil to skillet; stir-fry onion, garlic, ginger, carrots and red pepper for 3 minutes. Add stem ends of bok choy, broccoli, mushrooms; stir-fry for 2 to 3 minutes.

Stir together broth, soy sauce and chili garlic sauce; stir into skillet along with pork and bok choy leaves. Cook until vegetables are tender-crisp and bright in colour, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from heat.

Garnish: Sprinkle with green onions and coriander; divide mixture among bowls.
