I guess you probably watched the Super Bowl – commercials and all. Well I did not. It’s the second year in a row that I’ve missed it. Last year, I was flying over the Atlantic on my way home from Kazakhstan, and this year, I just refused to stay awake for it. It started at 12:30 AM. Staying up till the wee hours of the morning was just not in the cards this year. Instead, I was fast asleep dreaming of food.

Food like this delicious orange pork stir fry. This simple twist on my usual stir fry uses pork tenderloin (or sliced pork chops if that’s what you have) and a infusion of citrus to enhance the sauce. The sweetness of the orange is delicate enough that it doesn’t over power the other flavors in the dish, but it pairs really well with the pork.

And please don’t get confused, this dish tastes nothing like the orange chicken you can find at fast food establishments and mall counters across the country. Not that I have anything against that orange chicken – it’s really pretty good for something that tastes nothing like orange. This just isn’t the same thing.


Orange Pork Stir Fry

  • Author: Melissa Belanger
  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 15 minutes
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 4 1x


  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 11 1/4 pounds pork tenderloin, thinly sliced
  • 1 small head broccoli, cut into small florets (about 2 1/2 cups)
  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 carrot, thinly sliced
  • For the sauce:
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch


  1. In a large skillet or wok, heat oil to medium-high. Add garlic and crushed red pepper flakes. Saute until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add pork and continue cooking, stirring frequently, until pork is no longer pink, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add vegetables to pan. Continue cooking for another 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the sauce ingredients. Pour sauce into pan immediately to prevent clumping, and continue cooking until vegetables are tender but still crisp.
