Orange Teriyaki Pork Stew is one of those rare dishes that are both as good as they sound and absolutely healthy!
Found this recipe and had to try it out. We love soups and stews around here and mixing things up is a necessity in our home so it was a trying it out was a no brainer! Of course, we’ve also got a lot of love for Asian inspired foods, as I’m sure you’ve noticed. Yeah, this recipe was meant to be.
And the Kicker?
It’s healthy! For real, orange teriyaki pork stew is low fat and full of vitamins. Everyone in the house loved it and hopefully you will too!
- 2 pounds pork butt, cut into 1 inch chunks
- 1 Tbsp 5 spice Powder
- 1 Tbsp Canola Oil
- 4 oz shiitake mushrooms
- 12 oz bok choy, washed and stems cut off of leaves (separate)
- 6 TBSP minced garlic
- 1 Tbsp grated ginger or 1 tsp powdered
- 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
- 2 c beef broth
- 1 c orange juice
- 1/2 c low sodium soy sauce
- 2 oranges
You can cook the entire stew in a dutch oven (which is what I did). I’m also sure it could be cooked in any other pot.
- Toss pork butt with 5 spice powder then brown in batches. Set aside.
- Add mushrooms, bok choy stems, garlic, ginger and red pepper. Cook for 2 minutes.
- Add broth, orange juice and soy sauce. Bring to a boil scraping the yummy gunk from the bottom of the pan. If you feel the need to add more liquid, be sure and add half orange juice and half broth so that the flavor balances.
- Return beef to pot, simmer for 45 minutes or until beef is tender.
- Add in bok choy leaves, cook for 5 minutes.
- Serve with topped with peeled oranges.
We served it on top of Basmati rice and it was fantastic.
