I was recently asked to be a part of the North Carolina Pork Council Blogging Network to create pork recipes that everyday folks like you and me could enjoy after a busy day at work or on the weekends. Of course, I happily accepted!
My first recipe “challenge” was to come up with a recipe utilizing pork that could be prepared in 30 minutes or less. I LOVE quick and easy recipes (along with a challenge), so it wasn’t too difficult to prepare this Quick and Easy Pork Stir Fry.
By utilizing a quick cooking rice (I used a 10-minute “boil-in-a-bag” rice) and a bag of frozen stir fry veggies, you can whip up this hearty pork stir fry recipe in no time!
It all begins with boiling your quick cooking rice while you slice some boneless center-cut pork chops into thin strips. If your rice is cooked before your stir fry is finished, simply place it in a bowl and cover with plastic wrap or aluminum foil until ready to use.
I started out by cooking the pork strips in olive oil, then adding a bag of stir fry vegetables along with a mixture of water, soy, and teriyaki sauce whisked with a little cornstarch to thicken the mixture.
Cover and let the goodness simmer for a few minutes and you’re done after adding canned pineapple chunks. That’s it. Serve over rice and you have a complete meal that your whole family will love!
