Slivered Pork in Tangy BBQ Sauce

This very quick dinner uses the bits of meat I rescued when I cut that massive pork leg earlier this week (Miss Piggy Goes to Market, April 25, 2012). Depending on the thickness of the meat, a butcher might call these strips “fast fry” boneless chops. This simple dish is excellent over rice or noodles, and needs only a couple of minutes in your skillet. 
Slivered Pork in Tangy BBQ Sauce:
1 lb. lean pork, sliced into strips
2 tsp. canola oil
1 c. ketchup
⅓ c. apple juice or water
⅔ c. brown sugar
1 tsp. chili flakes
1-½ tsp. soy sauce
½ tsp. dry mustard
¼ tsp. salt
1 tbsp. cornstarch or tapioca starch
Sauté meat in canola oil about 1 min. per side on medium-high heat (If meat is more than ¼-in. thick, this may take slightly longer). Reduce heat to low. Combine remaining ingredients in a bowl. Add to meat, cover, and simmer 5 min. Serves 4.
