Serves | Prep Time | Cook Time


2 tbsps reduced-sodium soy sauce
2 tbsps dry sherry (not cooking sherry)
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 lb boneless top loin pork chops
4 ozs thin oriental-style noodles or angel hair pasta
1/2 medium-large Spanish onion
2 large green bell peppers (or one each red and green)
2 large garlic cloves
1 tbsp peanut oil, divided
3 tbsps hoisin sauce (see note)

In a medium mixing bowl whisk together the soy sauce, sherry and black pepper and set aside.

Trim all visible fat from the edges of the pork chops and then thinly slice, across the grain. Place slices in soy mixture, turn to coat and set aside.

Place a 4-quart sauce-pan half filled with cold water over medium-high to high heat and bring to a boil. Add noodles to boiling water, stir

until soft (about 15 seconds) and cook for 3 minutes. Rinse and drain in a small-holed colander.

While water heats, peel onion, trim ends and cut lengthwise into thin slices and place in small bowl. Core peppers, cut lengthwise into thin slices and place in medium bowl. Press garlic through garlic press and place in very small bowl.

Place a large, heavy-bottomed nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and add 1 teaspoon oil. When hot, add the onion and saute for 1 or 2 minutes until just starting to soften. Add the bell pepper slices and saute for 3 minutes, until beginning to soften. Push the peppers to the side, leaving the middle of the skillet open. Put the garlic in the middle and cook for 30 seconds; then stir into pepper mixture. Remove vegetables to a medium bowl, add the hoisin sauce and stir to coat. Add the remaining oil to the skillet, when hot add the pork and saute until the meat just loses its pink color. Stir in the noodles and then stir in the pepper mixture. Serve immediately.

Serves 4

Notes: an equal amount of thin-sliced chicken breast or flank steak maybe substituted for the pork. Look for hoisin sauce and oriental noodles in the Asian aisle of the supermarket or Asian markets.
