To ensure even cooking, be sure to turn the pork in the Grill Pan every 5 minutes using the Chef's Tongs. The internal temperature of the pork will rise approximately 5-10°F after it is removed from the pan.
For brighter color, blanch the snow peas in boiling water for 30 seconds, then drain and immediately plunge peas into a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking process. Let stand 5 minutes and drain. Pat dry with paper towels.
