When they're in season, substitute any tender green?arugula, cress, chard, or dandelion are all good?for the spinach. And add a small handful of chopped basil at the last minute of you like.A couple of other pointers about this basic stir‐fry: If you like a strong garlic flavor, reserve one‐half tablespoon of the garlic and stir it in at the end of the cooking, along with the soy sauce and lime juice. And if the mixture is drier than you like after you've added the soy sauce and lime juice, add one‐quarter to one‐half cup of water or any stock you have on hand; heat through and serve.

Recipe Ingredients for Stir Fried Pork with Spinach

1 pound pork tenderloin
1 pound spinach, trimmed and washed
2 tablespoons peanut or other vegetable oil
1 1/2 tablespoons minced garlic
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1/4 cup lime juice

Recipe Directions for Stir Fried Pork with Spinach

  1. Slice the pork as thinly as you can (it's easier if you freeze it for 15 to 30 minutes first). Cut the slices into bite‐sized pieces, about the size of a quarter. Chop or tear the spinach coarsely.

  2. When you're ready to cook, have all ingredients ready, including a serving dish and rice, if any. Preheat a wok or a large, heavy skillet over high heat until it begins to smoke. Immediately add half the peanut oil and the pork. Cook, stirring occasionally (not constantly), until the pork browns and loses all traces of pinkness, about 3 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to remove the pork to a bowl, and lower the heat to medium.

  3. Add the remaining peanut oil to the wok. Swirl it around and add the garlic. Stir once or twice. As soon as garlic begins to color?about 15 seconds?return the heat to high and add the spinach. Stir frequently, just until the spinach wilts, a minute or two longer.

  4. Add the pork and stir for 1 minute. Add the soy sauce and lime juice, stir, turn off the heat, garnish, and serve immediately.
