My version of easy pork chow mein. I used my crockpot to cook the pork. I seasoned it with salt, pepper and onion powder. Cooked on low around 4 hours with 1/2 cup water. You can use chicken or beef broth.
Cooled and shredded it.
I lb pork tenderloin
Salt pepper onion powder.
3 tsp. Oil
Diced Green onion
Cornstarch to thicken
Drained bamboo shoots and any other vegetables of choice. Mushrooms??
Later place oil, diced carrots,celery and onions in a large pan and sautéed until tender. Add shredded pork. I Used drippings from pork and added water to equal 1/2 cup. Thickened mixture with 2 tablespoons corn starch whisked with enough water to make a soupy thin paste. Pour into hot mixture stirring constantly. Add bamboo shoots while stirring gently. It will thicken quickly.
Served over hot rice with crunchy chow mein noodles.
Note: I had carrots, green onions and celery chopped and frozen so not much prep today. Crockpot saved time (in my opinion) because I wasn’t standing over heat very long.
