From Korea via Japan, a one-strike solution to a better stir-fry

Sesame Stir-Fried Pork with Shiitakes

30 minutes

Pork tenderloin and kimchi headline this stir-fry, but fresh shiitake mushrooms and a full bunch of scallions add to its umami-rich appeal. For a meatless alternative, substitute a 14-ounce container of extra-firm tofu, drained and cut in 1-inch cubes, for the pork.

Ingredients
  • 1

    -pound pork tenderloin, trimmed of silver skin

  • cups well-drained napa cabbage kimchi, roughly chopped, plus 2 tablespoons kimchi juice, divided

Directions
  1. 01
    Cut the tenderloin in half lengthwise, then slice each half crosswise about ¼ inch thick. In a medium bowl, stir together the pork, 1 tablespoon of the kimchi juice, 1 tablespoon of the soy sauce and ½ teaspoon pepper.
