"Oohh" Goo Gai Pan

This was my first experiment with cooking a Paleo dinner - it resembles Moo Goo Gai Pan, but since it is not made of Chicken (I used butterfly pork chops) I decided on "Oohh" Goo Gai Pan.

It's a quick fix on a busy night and Ooohhh So Good!

"Oohh" Goo Gai Pan

1/4 onion, julienne cut
1/2 red bell pepper, julienne cut
1 C. snow peas
1 T. bacon drippings
1 T. soy sauce or Tamari
1/2 C. Moscato wine
1 clove garlic, minced
6 mushrooms, sliced
2 butterfly pork chops, thick cut
dash Sriracha hot sauce
1 tsp. cornstarch

In a cast iron skillet over medium heat, melt bacon drippings and add pork chops.  Searing meat until almost cooked through.

While the pork is cooking, julienne cut the onion and bell pepper.  Remove meat from the pan and set aside to keep warm.  Add Moscato wine, soy sauce and Sriracha to deglaze the pan.  Add onion and garlic and saute until caramelized.  Next add the remaining vegetables until cooked lightly.  To create a thicker sauce, add cornstarch to a bit of chicken broth until well combined.  Add the cornstarch mixture to the pan and incorporate through the vegetables and lastly add meat back to the pan to warm.

Serve immediately - nothing else is necessary to accompany this gorgeous meal!
