Sweet and sour stir fry

Last night started with ingredients very similar to those I used the other night for Pra Ram Tofu. I had on hand broccoli, red pepper and onion. I also had "veggie pork" from the Asian market. It's not a wheat gluten meat but instead made from mushroom and soy - still, I wouldn't claim it was gluten free because it had an unidentified starch and "vegetarian seasonings." But in an effort to use things on hand and because dh said he was fine with it - I used this in the stir fry. I didn't have much on hand for making a sauce so of course I hit the internet and found a recipe over at Karina's Kitchen for a simple sauce made from vegetable broth and pepper jelly. I thickened it a bit with some corn starch. It was exactly what I was looking for and went really well with the vegetables and mushroom meat substitute. I sprinkled some sesame seeds over the whole thing and served it on basmati rice.

It was a perfect evening for dining outside so that's what we did - the girls were off with their friends, so yet again we had a peek into the empty nest of the future.
