I'm so excited to share this recipe, beyond the fact that it tastes INCREDIBLE! Not only is it packed with flavor, it's also packed with protein (shoutout to the ground pork!) and vegetables, so you can feel good about serving this to your family.
Second, it's super duper easy and quick. Thanks to the convenience of frozen vegetables and noodles that cook in just 3 minutes, this recipe goes from start to finish in just 25 minutes! "Easy peasy lemon squeezy" as my daughter would say!!!
And lastly, cooking with pork supports farm families in my home state of Iowa and across the country. As someone who grew up on a pig farm, I understand the hard work that goes into producing a high-quality product. Therefore, I want you know how much buying pork and supporting farm families (like mine!) means the world to us. <3 Let's get cookin'!!!
Ingredients for Stir Fry
- Ground Pork
- Stir Fry Vegetables - I use a frozen bag with carrots, broccoli, mushrooms, red pepper and water chestnuts for ease of prep, but you could also use fresh vegetables
- Low Sodium Soy Sauce
- Brown Sugar - You could replace this with honey if you'd like
- Garlic and Ginger - I use the tubes of paste, however, you could also finely mince fresh garlic and ginger and use that instead
- Red Pepper Flakes - Optional, but I love the bit of added heat!
- Noodles - You can either use a 6 oz package of the uncooked chow mein noodles (they only take 3 minutes to boil) or a 14.2 oz package of the pre-cooked stir fry noodles
- Sesame Seeds & Sliced Green Onions - Totally optional for garnish!
How to Make Stir Fry
If you're looking for an easy stir fry recipe, this is the one for you! You'll start by browning the ground pork in a large skillet or wok. Then, you'll add the vegetables and let them cook.
Next, you'll add a simple homemade sauce and noodles.
Give the mixture a stir to make sure everything is well-incorporated. The stir fry will cook for a couple more minutes, then it'll be time to dive in!
I like to serve stir fry with a handful of sliced green onions for some freshness and a sprinkle of sesame seeds!!
Stir Fry with Rice
If you prefer a stir fry with rice, it's an easy switch! Simply omit the noodles in the recipe and serve the stir fry over your favorite rice! Switching to rice is an easy way to make this gluten-free for those who need it.
