  1. Heat a wok or skillet over medium-high heat. Add toasted sesame oil and then broccoli. Saute for 2 minutes until broccoli is starting to turn brown in spots. Add stock (portion for the broccoli), garlic and chili garlic sauce. Cover wok with a lid or foil. Cook, covered until broccoli is tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Season broccoli with some salt. Set aside, covered.

  2. Return wok to heat and add first part of cooking oil and then pork to heated oil. Saute until pork is cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes. Set aside.

  3. Return wok to heat and add second part of oil. Add carrots and white parts of green onions and saute until carrots are tender, ~5 minutes. Add a splash of water if the pan starts to look dry.

  4. Add cabbage and saute until cabbage is tender but still has a bit of crunch, 1 to 3 minutes more.

  5. Move cabbage to the side of the pan, forming a donut in the middle. Pour stir-fry sauce into the donut and bring to a simmer. Simmer for 2 minutes until sauce thickens.
