Jamaican Pork and Mango Stir-Fry

Jamaican Pork and Mango Stir-Fry

This is a quick-to-prepare dish with Caribbean flair. Sensuous mango adds a refreshing, exotic flavor and contributes a generous helping of both vitamins A and C.

Prep and Cook Time 17 minutes

Yield

Makes 4 servings

Ingredients

1 pork tenderloin (about 1 pound)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon Caribbean jerk seasoning blend
1 medium mango, peeled and chopped, or 1/2 (26-ounce) jar mango slices in light syrup, chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
2/3 cup orange juice
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon jalapeño pepper sauce or 1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
1/4 cup sliced green onions

Preparation

  1. Trim fat from pork. Cut pork into thin strips.
  2. Heat oil in large skillet or wok over medium-high heat until hot. Add pork and seasoning blend; stir-fry 2 minutes. Add mango and bell pepper; stir-fry 2 minutes or just until pork is no longer pink.
  3. Blend orange juice, cornstarch and pepper sauce until smooth; add to skillet. Cook and stir 2 minutes or until sauce is clear and thickened. Stir in green onions.

Serving Suggestion

Create an easy island side salad by adding canned pineapple tidbits and raisins to prepared coleslaw.

Tip

Look for firm but not hard mangoes with a yellow or red blush. Underripe fruit can be ripened in a paper bag for 1 to 3 days. Ripe mangoes have a sweet, fruity aroma.
