Thinly slice pork chops, removing any fat, into bite sized ribbons. Combine soy sauce, the zest and juice of two oranges, 1 Tbsp. of sesame oil, mirin, and garlic. Marinate pork for at least 30 minutes.

Add remaining sesame oil and vegetable oil to your wok. Add pork, saving the marinade. Fry pork until cooked through and slightly crispy. Meanwhile, toss chopped broccolini into marinade. When pork is cooked through, add broccolini and marinade to the wok.
