New USDA Guidelines
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Place pork and broccoli in a medium-size mixing bowl, set aside. In small saucepan, bring broth to a boil; lower heat to a simmer, add onion and bell pepper and simmer 10 minutes. Stir in mustard, pepper and cornstarch mixture, bring to a boil, stirring. Remove from heat and mix with pork and broccoli; set aside.

Spray a 2-quart, 11 x 7-inch baking dish with nonstick spray; line with one sheet of phyllo and sprinkle with one tablespoon bread crumbs. Repeat this 3 times; and fill with meat mixture. Cover the meat with phyllo, layering the same way on top as the bottom of the dish. (To clarify, this would be 4 sheets of phyllo dough and 3 tablespoons of bread crumbs beneath and on top of the meat mixture.) Tuck any overlapping phyllo dough gently down the inner sides of the baking dish. Bake until phyllo is brown and filling hot, about 25 minutes. Cut into squares to serve.

Serves 6

Note: If desired, use sheets of phyllo to create individual triangles. Omit bread crumbs.

Make sure not to let the phyllo dough dry out while working with it. These can be cut into appetizer size. Or serve with a fruit salad for a light midday meal.
