  1. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir pork until lightly browned, 5 to 7 minutes. Add onion and mushrooms and cook until slightly tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Add chicken broth, celery, salt, and black pepper; bring to a boil. Cover skillet, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until pork is tender, 15 to 20 minutes.
  2. Mix bean sprouts and almonds into pork mixture. Whisk soy sauce and cornstarch together in a bowl until smooth; stir into pork mixture until thickened, 2 to 3 minutes.

I used leftover pork loin roast adding it with the broth. Very good basic recipe that can easily be modified to personal preference.

I doubled the soy sauce & cornstarch to make it thicker and added 1 cup of salted cashews instead of 1/2 cup of almonds. Really good!
