Homemade Pork Stir Fry
Chinese take-out is one of my favorites and I love to recreate dishes at home!
Not only is it easy to whip up, but it can be tailored to what you have on hand! Add your favorite veggies and scoop it onto rice, over noodles, or even shredded lettuce for a flavorful and filling entrée that will have everyone asking for seconds!
And, leftovers? Yes, please! This recipe makes awesome leftovers to take to work or school the next day!
PORK Either pork loin chops or pork tenderloin work well! Keep in mind that pork can be (and should be) a touch pink in the middle to keep it nice and tender.
VEGGIES Fresh or frozen will both work great! If using frozen, just run them under hot water to thaw (and drain well) them before adding to the recipe.
SAUCE The star of the dish! A bit sweet, a bit savory and a lot delicious it’s made with ingredients you likely have on hand. If you’re not a fan of pineapple juice, orange juice can be used.
VARIATIONS Stir fry is great because anything goes! Add mushrooms, bell peppers, onions, corn, zucchini, or water chestnuts to stretch this dish even further. If you prefer a spicier sauce, try adding some chili pepper flakes! Want less spice? Skip the sriracha!
