In a bowl, mix together ½ cup chicken stock, soy sauce, 1 tablespoon cornstarch, chili sauce and sesame oil. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, mix together 1 tablespoon cornstarch and 1 tablespoon vegetable oil. Toss the pork in the cornstarch slurry.
Heat a tablespoon of vegetable oil in a large skillet until about to smoke. Brown the pork until barley cooked through. 3-5 minutes. Remove the pork from the pan.
In the now empty pan, add the garlic, ginger and broccoli. Cook for about 1 minute until broccoli starts to turn lighter green and garlic and ginger are fragrant. Add the remaining ¼ cup of chicken stock and cook covered until broccoli is tender and chicken stock is mostly evaporated.
