Hot and Sour Pork

This is great recipe. It has a perfect level of spice, it's cheap to make, and it cooks in a flash. What more could you want?

1 (1-pound) boneless pork chops, trimmed and cut into strips
1 tablespoon cornstarch, divided
1/2 teaspoon white pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon water
1/2 cup ketchup
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon Sriracha or chile-garlic sauce
2 teaspoons low-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 garlic cloves, minced
12 cups coarsely chopped green cabbage (about 2 pounds)
1/3 cup chopped green onions

Combine pork, 1 teaspoon cornstarch, white pepper, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a medium bowl; set aside.

Combine remaining 2 teaspoons cornstarch and 1 tablespoon water in a small bowl; set aside.

Combine ketchup and next 3 ingredients (through soy sauce) in a small bowl; set aside.

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork mixture and garlic; sauté 2 minutes. Remove pork from pan; set aside.

Add cabbage; sauté 2 minutes.

Add ketchup mixture; sauté 2 minutes. Stir in pork; sauté 1 minute. Stir in cornstarch mixture; cook 30 seconds or until thick.

Remove from heat; stir in onions.
