I altered the recipe so much that I probably shoudn't rate it but I wanted to leave a review to let y'all know how adaptable & flavorful it is. I used leftover pork (spanish pork w/ white wine from this site) but my leftovers were very juicy & tender. I can't recommend leftover pork that is dry or tough. I did not have fresh ginger nor chile paste so I subbed ground ginger & red pepper flakes (foodsubs.com is a great resource for knowing what to sub) but not in the same quantities...I just taste tested it & quit when it tasted right. I, of course, did not use the marinade since my pork was precooked. In addition to the peppers, I added mushrooms & frozen, thawed snow peas. Because of the addition of the veggies I had to increase the teriyaki sauce. I sauteed the veggies in sesame oil for a few minutes, added the leftover pork cubes & then added the teriyaki, ginger & red pepper flakes...allowing it to simmer for a little while until liquid was absorbed. I served it over jasmine rice & instead of garnishing it w/ toasted almonds, I sliced up a bit of green onions. Mandarin Almond Salad (from thsi site) was the perfect complement

Sorry to say this but this recipe fell short of expectations. It just wasn't that great. It's a nice try but I can get a more tasy meal far more easily.

This was soooo good. I wanted to scrap the plate, and lick it!!!! For the teriyaki sauce I made my own...1/4 c. sugar, 1/4 soy sauce, 1 Tablespoon cider vinegar, 1 garlic, 1/2 tsp powered ginger, 1 tsp. chilli pepper. Then I mixed the 3 T. fresh ginger that it called for. I used it all(not just 5 T.) Then I mixed up some cornstarch with water and added a little at a time(1 T. cornstarch, 1 T. water) I also marinaded the prokloin over night and baked it for an hour. It was so tender I could have cut it with a fork!!!! Cooled it and stirfried it with the peppers and sauce.

This was very good. But it's an awful lot of oil (5 T of Olive Oil in the marinade and 5 T of Vegetable Oil for stir frying). We drained off the Olive Oil in the marinade before stir frying, but it still seemed like too much with the residule marinade plus the stir fry oil. The recipe says to "continue to stir fry until most of the liquid has evaporated"...but there is way too much oil, plus other additives to do that without overcooking the meat and peppers. Has anybody tried not adding the V Oil for stir frying and just stir frying with the Marinade? Better for you...

Great Recipe..I added 1 teaspoon of red pepper flakes to the marinade in subsitute of the chili sauce, and at the end I found that I had a TON of thin sauce so I added 2T of cornstarch, turned out YUM OoOoO's..I also added cilantro instead of mint at the end =) Thanks for the yummy recipe

This is a great stir fry as printed. For us we have to turn down the "heat" a little but otherwise no substitutes. I will not rate a recipe that I have taken apart - this is very unfair. Thanks for a lovely meal.

We tweaked this a bit, but loved every bit. We substituted the mint for cilantro and chili for red pepper flakes, as others suggested. We also substituted a few tbsp of veggie oil for sesame oil, which added a wonderful flavor. Also, we discovered we were out of teriaki sauce so we substituted with soy sauce. we only needed about 2 tbsp of soy (as opposed to the 5 tbsp of teriaki it calles for). We plan to make this one again and again!

Yum. Everyone loved this recipe! The pork had a wonderful flavor and it looked gorgeous on the serving plate. I didn't have mint, so used green onion & cilantro. Served over steamed calrose rice and side pot stickers. MMMMM
