Tonight's Dinner: Stir-fried pork
If you have some leftover pork and a vegetable or two, a wok can turn all these ingredients into a delicious dinner in no time.
Stir-frying is one of the easiest things to do when it comes to dinner. Whenever I'm at a loss for what to make or I have very little time to make a healthy, filling meal, I turn to my wok. It's probably the most used pan I have in my cupbord because it's all I need to make a nice meal; well that, a protein, a vegetable or two, my favorite soy sauce and some rice. It's really that simple. Even better, this delightful meal can be table ready in about 20 minutes.
- 2 cups rice
- 3 boneless pork chops, cut into 1-inch pieces
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 tablespoon ginger, grated
- 2 broccoli florets, chopped
- 2 cups shredded cabbage
- 2 tablespoons sweet soy sauce
- Prepare the rice according to the directions on the package.
- While the rice cooks, heat the oil in a wok over medium-high heat. Add the pork and cook for three to four minutes. Add the garlic, ginger, broccoli and cabbage and cook for another minute. Add the soy sauce, toss to coat and cook until heated through.
- Spoon cooked rice onto each plate, ladle stir-fried pork mixture over it, and serve.
