Sesame Pork

Every time I make this meal, we throw a few fist pumps in the air...we love it! Especially with extra ginger...yum!

Sesame Pork (serves 4)


  • 2 Tbsp sesame seeds, toasted or browned
  • Peanut oil, can use canola oil
  • 1 lb pork fillet, cut into strips, I buy pork scaloppini
  • 3 Tbsp hoisin sauce
  • 3 Tbsp teriyaki sauce
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 5-8 scallions, cut into 1 in pieces
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2-3 tsp grated fresh ginger
  • 2 carrots, cut into matchsticks
  • 1-2 c. green beans, cut in half
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Cooking Directions:

Heat 1 Tbsp oil in a wok, add pork in batches and stir-fry until browned, about 3 min. Add more oil if needed. Remove and set meat aside. Combine hoisin and teriyaki sauces with the cornstarch and 1 Tbsp water. Mix until smooth. Add more oil to the wok as well as the sesame oil. Add carrot and beans and stir-fry about 2 min. Add scallions, garlic, and ginger. Stir-fry 3 minutes. Add pork and cornstarch mixture and stir until sauce boils and thickens. Simmer until meat is tender and vegetables are cooked, about 2 minutes. Sprinkle the sesame seeds and toss. Serve hot, over rice.
