Spicy Stir Fried Pork with Garlic and Chiles

Adapted from America's Test Kitchen 30-Minute Suppers

Ingredients:
2 Tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
1 Tablespoon fish sauce
1 1/2 Tablespoons lime juice
1 1/2 Tablespoons backed brown sugar
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1 Tablespoons vegetable oil
1 lb pork tenderloin, sliced crosswise into 1/4-inch pieces
1 red bell pepper, seeded and sliced thin
2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and sliced thin
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup fresh chopped basil

Directions:
In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, fish sauce, lime juice, sugar, and cornstarch until everything is dissolved and well combined.

In a wok or large, deep skillet, heat the oil over medium high heat.  Add the pork and quickly stir fry; stirring constantly, for about 3 minutes.  Add the bell pepper and jalapeno and cook for another 2-3 minutes, or until the pork is cooked through and the veggies have softened just a bit.  Add the garlic and stir fry for 1 minute.  Add the sauce to the pan and as soon as it boils, reduce heat to low, making sure to stir to coat the pork, until sauce has thickened.  Take off the heat and stir in the basil.  Serve over rice or noodles.  Enjoy!
