Sweet and Sour Pork Stir Fry is an easy, and healthy, 30 minute dinner! This recipe is so simple and so delicious!
Hello lovely readers!
How are we doing? I’ve missed you.
It is definitely weird getting used to this one posting a week schedule. I’m used to planning out more recipes per week and balancing out all the ideas I have. But now, with just one a week, I’m really having to be selective with what I post! It definitely has been hard to not post 3 or 4 pumpkin recipes already.
But, c’est la vie.
Nothing too exciting going on over here lately. I took Chase and Hudson out for a walk earlier and they managed to find a nice mud pit to roll in. I always know when I don’t see them for a few minutes that they are down there. When they do that it always takes me longer to rinse them off than I spend on the actual walk.
But I digress, let’s talk easy, healthy, 30 minute meals. Namely, Sweet and Sour Pork Stir Fry.
Being busy with work means that when I get home I need a nice and easy dinner. Add in the fact that it is skinny and I’m sold.
The recipe is basically just cooking all the ingredients in a simple sauce and serving. What could be better?!
Enjoy this healthy meal this week! Maybe I’ll take the dogs out again without them running into the mud…
- 2 tbs lime juice
- 4 tbs hoisin sauce
- 1 tbs water
- ¼ tsp salt
- ¼ tsp ground black pepper
- 2 heads of broccoli, chopped
- 2 cups thinly sliced carrots
- ¼ cup water
- 1 tbs canola oil
- 1½ lb pork tenderloin, excess fat removed and thinly sliced
- 1 can bean sprouts, drained
- 4 cups cooked rice
- Combine lime juice, hoisin sauce, water, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Set aside.
- Place chopped broccoli and carrots and ¼ cup water in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 2-3 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Remove from the microwave and set aside.
- Heat a large electric skillet on medium heat with canola oil. Add carrots and broccoli to one side of the pan and add pork to the other. Pour on half of sauce and gently stir while cooking. Cook until pork is white throughout, about 4 to 5 minutes. Add in remaining sauce and bean sprouts and cook for one more minute.
- Remove stir fry from the oven and serve over rice.
2. Bean sprouts are fairly easy to find in the Asian section of your supermarket. If you can't find them, feel free to leave them out.
3. If you do not have an electric skillet, you can use a normal saute pan instead. Cook pork through first, drain excess fat, add in vegetables and sauce and cook until vegetables have softened.
