I bought a mango on a whim at the store the other day so I was looking around for a mango dish for dinner. I found a few that were along the lines of what I wanted and from those a new recipe is born!
This would also be fantastic with chicken!
1.5 lbs pork loin, sliced thin
1/2 lb asparagus spears
1 sm green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1 sm red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1 medium shallot, chopped
1 TB butter
1 TB olive oil
1/4 cup mango preserves
1/2 cup mango juice (or orange juice, if you dont have mango)
1 cup chicken stock
1 TB brown sugar
1/4 tsp cloves
1/4 tsp nutmeg
2 TB fresh ginger root, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp onion powder
2 tsp corn starch
salt to taste
1 medium mango, peeled and cubed
1 cup brown rice(or more if you like alot of rice!)
Cook Rice according to package instructions.
Add in asparagus, bell peppers and shallots, cook until fragrant(about 2 minutes)
Add in pork. Cover and cook until the pork is done, about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
While it is cooking in a bowl combine the sauce ingredients and mix well.
Add Sauce to the hot pan and bring to a slow boil over medium heat until the sauce is thickened, about 5 minutes.
Serve over rice, make sure to get some sauce too.
You can sprinkle on some red pepper flakes for a nice kick!
