Fragrant Five Spice Pork ala India
From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. A great flavor combination! Use any herbs as desired. I like to use the combo known as Chinese Five Spice but is world-wide used for so many cuisines and not necessarily called Chinese Five Spice! So tonight let's call it Indian Five Spice powder!
1/2 - 3/4 pound lean pork, such as tenderloin
Cut pork into strips. In a medium bowl, toss pork strips with soy sauce, sherry, sugar, salt, herb powder, and cornstarch. Let stand 10 minutes. In a wok or sauté pan, heat oil over high heat until very hot. Add pork and stir and fry until just barely done, about 3 minutes. Cut asparagus spears into about 2 inch pieces. Add them to the pork mixture, cooking and stirring 1-2 minutes, adding a bit more oil or soy sauce if needed.
