Ingredients for Sauce
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp Agave or honey
½ tsp ground ginger
½ tsp red pepper flakes
4 tbsp lite soy sauce or 2 tbsp soy sauce plus 2 tbsp of water
Sesame oil to taste

Ingredients for Stir Fry
1 pound of boneless pork loin, sliced into strips
1 bunch of bok choy, cut into bite-sized pieces
2 apples, cut into matchsticks
1 bag of broccoli slaw
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 tablespoon sesame oil
Heat both types of oil over medium-high heat. Cook pork until browned and cooked through. Remove pork from the pan, add garlic and shallots. Saute for a few minutes, until shallots are soft and garlic is golden. Add bok choy, apples, and broccoli slaw along with sauce and sauté roughly 5 minutes, or until almost cooked. Add the pork back to the pan and mix with sauce and vegetables until heated through.
Serve hot, along or over brown rice.
