Sweet Broccoli with Pork

This stir fry dish has become a favorite in our family when we are in the mood for Chinese food. This dish makes broccoli a vegetable which children and those with a sweet tooth really enjoy. Try this one on picky children who don't seem to like vegetables.
  • 1 bunch broccoli
  • 1 lb. lean pork (chops or roast can be used)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1 cup cream sherry
  • 6 cloves chopped garlic
  • 3 slices fresh ginger root (slivered)
  • 1/4 cup oil or bacon grease

Cut the pork into 1 inch cubes and salt and pepper to taste. Mix the sugar, soy sauce and sherry in a bowl and set aside.

In a large skillet or wok, heat the oil with the garlic and ginger. Put the pork into the hot oil and stir fry for five to eight minutes, or until the pork is done. Next, add the broccoli and stir fry until the broccoli turns a bright green. Do not overcook the broccoli. Stir the mixture of soy sauce, sugar and sherry and pour over the broccoli and stir briefly. Reduce the heat to a minimum and cover. Wait one minute and serve. This dish is excellent with fried rice.
