6 in. wooden skewers

1 1/2 tsp. rice wine

2 tbsp. cornstarch

1 egg white

1 1/2 lb. pork loin or tenderloin, sliced thinly into rectangle-shaped pieces (about 24 slices)

2 tsp. vegetable oil

2 tsp. fresh grated ginger

1 tbsp. Fresh Minced Garlic

3/4 c. Coca-Cola®

1 1/2 c. hoisin sauce

1/3 c. low sodium soy sauce

1 tsp. toasted sesame oil

1/4 c. brown sugar

2 tsp. cornstarch

Step 1

Soak skewers in water while you prepare meat. Whisk together rice wine, cornstarch and egg white until frothy. Coat meat in mixture and marinate for 30 minutes in refrigerator.

Step 2

Thread meat onto skewers, and set aside.

Step 3

To make the sauce, add vegetable oil to a pan and stir-fry garlic and ginger for 30 seconds over medium heat. Whisk in all other ingredients except for green onions. Let sauce simmer and thicken for about 5 minutes.

Step 4

Grill skewers on a BBQ grill, under the broiler, or on a stovetop grill pan for 3 minutes per side, until cooked through and lightly browned. Remove skewers and place on a serving platter. Coat them with the heated sauce and garnish with chopped scallions.
