Drain beans; plunge into ice water. Drain. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add ginger and garlic; saute 1 minute. Add pork mixture; stir-fry 1-1/2 minutes. Stir in beans; stir-fry 1-1/2 minutes or until pork is done. Stir in broth; reduce heat, and simmer 2 minutes. Serve over rice; sprinkle with cashews.
