  • 1 pound pork loin, thinly sliced into strips
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce (divided)
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon ginger, minced
  • 1 bunch green onions, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth or water
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Sesame seeds, for garnish (optional)


  1. Marinate the Pork: In a mixing bowl, combine the pork strips with 1 tablespoon of soy sauce and the cornstarch. Mix well to coat the pork evenly and set aside for about 15 minutes to marinate.
  2. Prepare the Sauce: In a small bowl, whisk together the remaining 1 tablespoon of soy sauce, chicken broth (or water), oyster sauce, and sugar. Set aside.
  3. Cook the Pork: Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet or wok over high heat. Add the marinated pork strips in a single layer, allowing them to sear and brown without stirring for about 1 minute. Stir-fry the pork for another 2-3 minutes until just cooked through. Remove the pork from the skillet and set aside.
  4. Sauté Garlic and Ginger: In the same skillet, add the sesame oil. Sauté the minced garlic and ginger for about 30 seconds, or until fragrant.
  5. Add Green Onions: Add the green onions to the skillet and stir-fry for about 1 minute, until slightly softened but still crisp.
  6. Combine and Finish: Return the cooked pork to the skillet with the green onions. Pour the prepared sauce over the pork and green onions. Stir well to combine and cook for another 2 minutes, allowing the sauce to thicken slightly and coat the ingredients evenly.
  7. Serve: Season with salt and pepper to taste. Transfer the pork stir-fry to a serving platter or dish. Garnish with sesame seeds if desired.
  8. Enjoy: Serve hot over steamed rice or noodles for a complete meal.


  • For extra flavor, marinate the pork for up to an hour in the refrigerator if time allows.
  • Feel free to add other vegetables such as bell peppers, broccoli, or snap peas for added color and nutrition.
  • Adjust the seasoning of the sauce according to your preference, adding more soy sauce for saltiness or sugar for sweetness.
