Stir-Fry Ham with Raisins recipe

Who doesn't love a good stir-fry? A little Oriental food is one area that I tend to neglect in my menu planning, but when I do slip it in, it is a taste-sensation and surprise!

This recipe is from our church cookbook, and an older woman in church submitted this recipe. It sounds a bit unusual, but I really like the combination of sweet, crunchy and salty.

Stir-Fry Ham with Raisins

1 large onion, cut in wedges
2 large stalks celery
1 small green pepper, cut in chunks
1/2 lb. ham (cut in fingers)
2 Tbsp oil
1/2 cup raisins
1 Tbsp cornstarch
1 Tbsp soy sauce
3/4 cup orange juice
1 tsp. grated orange peel

Cook ham quickly in hot oil until it begins to brown. Add vegetables and raisins. Cook, stirring about 5 minutes. Add cornstarch mixed with soy sauce, juice and peel. Cook, stirring until sauce clears and thickens, and veggies are crisp tender. Serve over rice. Serves 4. *May use turkey ham.

When I did this recently, I didn't have orange juice, so I juiced an orange, and it worked well. I also didn't have cornstarch (where did it go?!) so I omitted it, and the recipe still tasted wonderful.

Let me know if you try it, I'd love to hear your review!
