    In 12-inch nonstick skillet or work, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over medium-high heat. Swirl pan to coat sides with oil. Add pork; cook 6 to 8 minutes, turning once, until cooked through. Add chile garlic sauce and gingerroot; cook 30 to 60 seconds, stirring frequently, until fragrant. Transfer to bowl; cover and keep warm.

    Wipe out skillet. Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil to skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and bok choy; cook 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently, until tender and browned. Add red cabbage; cook 30 to 60 seconds longer or until softened.
  • 4
    Return pork mixture to skillet. Stir sauce; add to pork and vegetables in skillet. Heat to boiling. Cook and stir 1 to 2 minutes or until sauce is thickened. Stir in sesame seed. Serve with rice, lime wedges, green onions and cilantro.

Expert Tips

  • Don’t turn the meat until it “releases.” If the oil is hot and your pork is dry, it will release (turn easily) once browned on the first side. If you try to move it too early, it will stick to the pan.
  • Don’t skip the step of trimming the pork tenderloin. That membrane doesn’t cook away, and it prevents flavors and seasonings from getting to the meat. To remove slippery silverskin, run a knife underneath the shiny membrane, and slice to remove the silverskin while removing as little meat as possible.
