Sweet & Sour Pork Stir Fry
- Time 30 minutes
- Serves 4 people
- 1 lb “breakfast” pork chops (this is what they are called in my grocery store, these are small, fairly thin chops –about 6 in a package) cut into strips
- cooking spray or 1 tablespoon canola oil
- 1 small onion, grated
- 1 clove garlic, grated
- 1 green bell pepper, seeded and sliced into strips
- 1 red or yellow bell pepper, seeded and sliced into strips
- 1 package cremini or white buttom mushrooms, quartered
- 1 10 oz bottle sweet & sour sauce (I like Kraft brand)
- 2 cups hot, cooked white or brown rice
- 1 tablespoon toasted seasame oil
- cashew halves or pieces
- butter lettuce leaves (optional)
How to make it
- Either spray with cooking spray or coat with oil, a large skillet and place over medium heat.
- Add the pork strips and after a minute or so, stir around.
- Add the grated onion and garlic and cook a few minutes more.
- Then add the bell pepper strips, the mushrooms and the sweet & sour sauce cook until the pork is done and the vegetables are tender.
- Cooking time will really depend on the thickness of the pork, but it won’t take long at all.
- Remove from heat.
- Sprinkle the sesame oil over and add the cashew and fluff it around with a fork to incorporate.
- Serve the stir fry over the rice or with the rice rolled up in a butter lettuce leaf.
