HOW TO MAKE PORK STIR FRY:
For this recipe, we start out with pork tenderloin and slice it into thin strips. You will slice up some bell peppers, and onions into thin strips as well.
If you have a wok, you can use it! If not, that’s ok too. You can easily use a cast iron, or whatever large non-stick skillet that you have on hand.
You will heat up one Tablespoon of oil, and cook up the pork with salt and pepper. When the pork is cooked through, simply remove it to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm. This takes about 5-7 minutes.
Next, add your remaining oil and saute your vegetables until they are tender but crisp. This takes around 4-5 minutes.
Add your pork back to the pan with the vegetables. Reduce your heat to medium, add your garlic, and cook for about 30 seconds.
Next, whisk together your sauce ingredients as outlined in the recipe card below. Pour it over the pork and vegetables in the skillet, let it simmer to thicken for a few minutes, and you’re ready to eat!
PORK STIR FRY:
Pork stir fry is easily cooked using just one pot. It’s a simple mixture of thinly sliced pork along with your favorite vegetables, and a simple stir fry sauce.
I think the reason I love making stir fry so much is because it’s so easy, especially if you’re having to throw a dinner together last minute. I usually just use whatever vegetables or meat I have on hand and always come out with great results. Pork stir fry is a delicious go-to dinner for any day of the week and I’ll definitely be making it again soon.
