Today, I wanted to share an Asian recipe with you that Jon and I eat on a regular basis. It's 8 pointsplus per serving, but like I said most Asian foods are higher in pointsplus values. You could probably lower the pointsplus values by using chicken instead of pork, but we enjoy pork so that's what I use.
|First, cut pork crosswise into 1/2 inch thick rounds.|
|Next, add sesame oil to your pan and begin to heat it up your pan.|
|Season both sides of pork with salt and black pepper. Add pork to your pan and sear 2 minutes per side.|
|Next, add apricot preserves, soy sauce and ginger and bring to a simmer.|
|Simmer 5 minutes, until pork is cooked through and sauce reduces.|
|The final product!! I served mine over rice. I normally serve it with steamed veggies too, but I didn't have any this time.|
