It’s all about the quick, the flavor, the sneak extra veggies in without forcing another salad down your throat sort of meals. In case you haven’t figured it out, we aren’t big on too many salads (unless they are laced with piles of zesty chicken or something, then they rock). And this quick stir fry really fits the bill for all of the dinner needs we had calling. It’s delicious, fast, and heck, we’d even dare to call it healthy (don’t shove piles of pasta on your your plate and this probably actually works as healthy….right?). Grab your wok, and get to cooking!
Wait, you don’t have a wok? Let’s have the kind people at Anolon hook one lucky reader up then. Not only is their new wok huge (perfect for these big feed ’em fast family meals), its non-stick, easy to clean, kinda sexy in it’s bronze finish, and quickly going to become a favorite new addition to your kitchen!

Cook the pasta in salted water according to the manufactures directions.
In a large wok over medium-heat, place the oil and sesame oil and swirl to coat. Add the pork, and cook, stirring often as the pork browns on all sides, 3 to 6 minutes. Remove from wok and set aside.
Toss the onion and red pepper into the wok. Toss and cook 1 to 2 minutes. Add the ginger and cook 30 seconds longer. Toss in the mushrooms and broccoli and cook until softened, but still crunchy.
Pour the teriyaki mixture over the veggies and return the pork, with any accumulated juices back to the pan. Allow to heat through.
