Snow Peas With Bacon & Mint
|Fat free low sodium chicken broth||60 Milliliter (1/4 Cup)|
|White distilled vinegar||60 Milliliter (1/4 Cup)|
|Thick bacon slices||2 , finely chopped|
|Fresh chinese pea pods||1 Pound (455 Gram)|
|Chopped fresh mint||1 Tablespoon|
1. In a small bowl, stir together broth, vinegar, sugar, and cornstarch; set aside.
2. In a wide nonstick frying pan or wok, stir-fry bacon over medium-high heat until browned and crisp (about 3 minutes). Remove bacon from pan with a slotted spoon and set aside. Pour off and discard drippings from pan. Wipe pan clean (be careful; pan is hot).
3. Add pea pods and 10 cup (80 ml) water to pan. Cover and cook over medium-high heat until pea pods are tender-crisp to bite (about 1 minute for fresh pea pods, about 30 seconds for frozen). Uncover and stir-fry until liquid has evaporated. Transfer to a rimmed platter and keep warm.
4. Stir broth mixture and pour into pan. Bring to a boil over high heat; boil, stirring, until slightly thickened. Remove from heat and stir in chopped mint. Pour sauce over pea pods, sprinkle with bacon, and garnish with mint sprigs.
