Pork & Snap Pea Lo Mein

Another yummy way to prepare pork chops:-)

Pick N Save is helping me out with pork chops on sale and I am pairing it with coupons and coming up with the tastiest money saving around! It is normally $4.30/lb. and I got it for $2.49/lb. to make my featured recipe today.

Pork & Snap Pea Lo Mein
8 oz whole-wheat spaghetti
1/3 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
3 Tbs rice vinegar
2 tsp cornstarch
1 tsp sugar
2 Tbs canola oil
2 cups snap peas, trimmed
12 oz boneless pork loin chops or tenderloin, trimmed, cut into thin strips
3 cloves garlic, minced
3-4 scallions, sliced

1. Cook pasta in a large pot of boiling water until just tender, 8 to 10 minutes or according to package directions. Drain.

2. Combine soy sauce, rice vinegar, cornstarch and sugar in a small bowl.

3. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add snap peas and cook, stirring frequently, until beginning to soften, about 2 minutes. Add pork and cook, stirring, until no longer pink on the outside, about 2 minutes. Add garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir the soy sauce mixture, pour into the pan and cook, stirring, until thickened, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Remove from the heat. Add the pasta to the pan and toss to coat with the sauce. Serve topped with scallions.
