Asian Pork and Cabbage
Low Carbohydrate Recipe
Find Black Bean Sauce, an Asian condiment, in Asian or International grocery stores, or in the Asian section of larger grocery stores. You can also find wonderful Black Bean Sauce options on Amazon.
1 pound boneless pork loin
1/2 head cabbage
1 small onion
Canola or peanut oil for stir-frying
1 tablespoon black bean sauce
1 to 2 tablespoons chili garlic paste
Slice the pork loin as thin as you possibly can -- this is easier if the pork is partially frozen.
Slice the cabbage about one-half inch thick, and cut across it a few times. Thinly slice the onion.
In a wok or large skillet, heat 3 to 4 tablespoons of oil over highest heat. As soon as it is hot, add the pork and stir-fry for 3 to 5 minutes.
Add the cabbage and the onion and continue stir-frying until the cabbage and onion are just tender-crisp. Stir in the black bean sauce and the chili garlic paste and server.
