Dietitian's tip:

Cut off any thick ends on the bok choy stems to ensure even cooking.

Number of servings

Serves 4
  1. Weight management
  2. Diabetes meal plan


  1. 1/4 cup brown sugar
  2. 2 tablespoons minced green onions
  3. 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
  4. 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  5. 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  6. 1/4 teaspoon salt
  7. 1 pound pork tenderloin, cleaned and cut into strips
  8. 1 1/3 cups brown and white sushi rice
  9. 4 teaspoons peanut oil
  10. 6 cups baby bok choy
  11. 1/2 cup sliced carrots


In a medium bowl, combine the brown sugar, green onions, ginger, cornstarch, garlic and salt with a whisk. Place pork in the bowl with the brown sugar mixture. Refrigerate for 2 hours. Meanwhile, cook rice according to package directions. Set aside.

Remove pork from refrigerator and bring to room temperature. In a wok on medium-high heat, add 2 teaspoons of peanut oil. Once oil is heated, add pork. Cook until pork has reached 155 F, about 7 minutes. While pork is cooking, heat a separate large saute pan to medium-high heat. Add the remaining 2 teaspoons of peanut oil to pan and saute the bok choy and carrots until tender, about 4 minutes. Serve with rice.
