Stir-Fried Pea Pods with Water Chestnuts


8 ounces pea pods
1/2 cup chicken broth
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
1/2 teaspoon sesame seed oil (dark)
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 cup sliced water chestnuts


1. String the pea pods if necessary and set aside. In a small bowl, combine the chicken broth, soy sauce, vinegar, and sesame seed oil. Whisk to blend.

2. Heat the vegetable oil in a wok or large skillet. Add the pea pods and toss to coat evenly. Cook, stirring over high heat, for 30 seconds. Pour on the chicken broth mixture and continue stirring over high heat until most of the liquid is evaporated. Add the water chestnuts and stir briefly to warm through. Serve immediately.
