Pork in Peanut Sauce


A quick, easy, delicious pork with peanut sauce! This dish can be served over a bed of chopped romaine for a low-carb meal or noodles for the traditionalists. The oil you use makes all the difference: the peanuttier, the better. An obscure brand is usually better than a cheaper, mass-market variety.

  • ½ cup soy sauce

  • ½ cup chicken broth

  • ¼ cup peanut butter

  • 3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced

  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh ginger root

  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

  • 1 ½ pounds boneless pork loin, cut into strips

  • 2 tablespoons peanut oil for frying

  • 1 onion, chopped

  • ¾ cup cashew nuts

  • 2 cups frozen mixed stir-fry vegetables


  1. Stir together soy sauce, chicken broth, peanut butter, garlic, ginger, and red pepper flakes in a large bowl. Stir in pork to coat. Set aside.

  2. Heat oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in onions; cook for 1 minute, then stir in cashews. Cook and stir until onions are translucent and cashews are lightly golden.
