  1. Mix the sliced pork, 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce, and 1 tablespoon cornstarch together in a bowl. Set aside. Combine the remaining 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce, chicken broth, and 1 tablespoon cornstarch with rice vinegar, sugar, and cayenne pepper in small bowl. Set aside.
  2. Heat the sesame oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in the pork; cook and stir until the pork begins to brown, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and ginger; cook and stir until fragrant. Mix in the carrot, bell pepper, and water chestnuts, cooking until the carrots are tender. Stir in the reserved hoisin sauce mixture and continue cooking and stirring until the flavors are combined, about 3 minutes.

Very tasty, but spicy. Used up some strips of leftover pork tenderloin. Served over steamed white rice. Next time I wil sub a pinch of red pepper flake with the cayenne pepper.l

Very very spicy and I only used 1/2 cayenne pepper. I love hoisin but I think there is just too much of it in this recipe. I added snap peas since they were in season. I will not make this recipe again.

This was AWESOME- definitely a keeper! I didn't have Cayenne pepper so I sub'd red pepper flakes and added broccoli like pictured. I also shave the carrots with a peeler to give it that authentic texture. Much better than take-out and much healthier to boot!

Fantastic!! Whole family loved this; will definitely be making it regularly. The only changes I made were to add a small amount of chicken broth to loosen the sauce, and I subbed 1 tsp of chilli pepper paste for the cayenne pepper. My family likes the baby corn so I added a can of that as well. It was fine without any changes and worthy of the whole 5 stars as is. Will try it with chicken breast next time.

Used chicken instead of pork; otherwise followed recipe exactly and it came out great! Was easy to make and 3 out of 4 of my family liked it, so it gets 4 stars. Enjoy!

Not bad, kind of sweet.

We liked this a lot. I tried to make it just like the recipe but got halfway through and realized I didn't have everything, so made a few substitutions. I didn't have water chestnuts so I added regular onion and a stalk of celery. I added salt and pepper to the pork since the recipe doesn't have salt. I didn't have cloves of garlic, so I added powdered garlic. (I just sprinkled it all over the pork. I didn't notice garlic flavor - I don't recommend this). Finally, I didn't even have cayenne so I added a tsp of ground chili paste. I didn't taste the spice, it wasn't enough. Despite my trying to make this fail, it was still great! The "sauce" is more a sticky coating of hoisin on everything. Hoisin is sweet, so if you don't like sweet, don't make this! If you love Hoisin, this is PERFECT!
