Pork Stir Fry


I love stir frys and they are so simple to prepare. If you don't have time to cut up the vegetables you can purchase them ready cut in a package. Hubby bbq'd the pork chops while I got the rest of the ingredients together. We enjoyed this meal and Kaila was happy there were leftovers for her lunch the following day!

Ingredients:
  • 2 pork chops, cooked and cut in thin slices
  • 3 cups mixed vegetables, your choice of veggies, cut as preferred if you are cutting up your own. I used a package with ready cut stir fry veggies.
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil
Sauce:
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon tapioca starch
  1. Whisk together the sauce ingredients and set aside.
Stir fry:
  1. Heat a large skillet or wok with a tablespoon of cooking oil, on medium high heat.
  2. Add vegetables, salt, and pepper and stirfry for 5 minutes.
  3. Add cooked and sliced pork and stirfry another 5 minutes or until heated through.
  4. Stir in sauce mixture and cook on medium heat for 2 minutes or until sauce has thickened.
  5. Serve over noodles.
  6. Served 4 good appetites.

  3. Diane..tapioca starch can be purchased in the grocery store, I found mine in the same area as cornstarch. It is made from the cassava root which I believe is grown in South America. You can substitute cornstarch if you wish. I like to use tapioca starch for stir frys because it seems to give it more of a glossy finish.

  6. This looks excellent!! Thank you for the tip about tapioca starch. I always use corn starch, but I like the idea of the sauce adding a gloss. Thank you for sharing.
