Pork Chop Suey with shiitake mushrooms

Widely believed to have been invented by Chinese Americans, Pork Chop Suey is a popular stir-fry, and for good reason. It's both simple and delicious, and it takes just a few minutes to assemble the ingredients and then a few more to cook. We love it with shiitake mushrooms and lean and tender pork tenderloin, but feel free to experiment with your own favorite quick-cooking protein.

Test Kitchen Tip

For the best texture and flavor, cook the onions enough to soften and remove their raw taste, but not so much that they’re mushy.

Instructions

Heat oil in a wok or large skillet over high until shimmering. Add pork and stir-fry until browned, 34 minutes; transfer to a plate.

Add shiitakes, celery, and onions; stir-fry until onions soften, about 4 minutes.

Whisk together broth, soy sauce, garlic, and cornstarch; stir into wok and boil until thickened, 12 minutes. Stir pork and any residual juices into wok until heated through.

To avoid biting into any tough or rubbery pieces, be sure to remove the silverskin from the tenderloin.

Because the shiitake stems are tough and woody, cut them off and discard, or save them for stock.

Statistics

Statistics

  • Average: 5.00
  • Standardized Average: 5.00
    This is the average rating for this recipe, relative to the average rating of all of the recipes on this site. The average rating of all the recipes on this site is 49.02. If we pin the population average to 3 (define 3 as the new 49.02) and adjust this particular recipe's average accordingly, we see that, relative to a population average of 3, this recipe's adjusted standardized average is 5.00. This number is useful in that it accounts for how different people have different interpretations of the rating system.
  • Median: 5
    This is the rating that is in the middle of the ratings distribution. It is generally more indicative of how much you will actually like this recipe than the average because the average is subject to being skewed by outliers.
  • Mode: 5
    This is the most common rating that people have given this recipe.
  • Standard Deviation: None
    This is a measure of how polarizing the recipe is; how much people disagree about it.
    0 is the least polarizing; everyone agrees on the rating.
    2.5 is the most polarizing.
    Recipes with lower standard deviations in the ratings are better for people who don't want surprises. Higher standard deviations are good for adventurous cooks. There is no standard deviation for this recipe because it has fewer than 2 ratings so far.
This was VERY good. I used brown mushrooms because I couldn't find shiitake mushrooms in our area. Very Good dinner!
