EASY THAI PORK STIR-FRY

If you have been hanging around here for any length of time you know I love an easy weeknight meal recipe. Today’s Easy Thai Pork Stir-Fry is just that and a great dish to put over rice, with rice noodles or in a lettuce wrap. Sometimes I make a double batch because I think the leftovers taste just as good.

This Easy Thai Pork Stir-Fry uses ground pork and mixes it with a rainbow of vegetables along with a Thai inspired sauce. I can get this meal on the table in under 30 minutes and my family loves it.

When I make dinner each day I like to try new recipes for my family so they don’t get bored. We love stir-frys because it is an all encompassing meal that includes your protein and vegetables along with a grain if you choose to add it over brown rice.

If you haven’t tried using ground pork you should! I have recently used it in this Instant Pot Pork Chili and this Slow Cooker Pork Posole and loved how flavorful those dishes turned out using the ground pork.

Mike and I love going out for Thai food and I have noticed that a lot of their stir-frys include ground pork. When I created this recipe at home I used bell pepper {try using a variety of colors}, onion, matchstick carrots and bok choy. If you aren’t a fan of bok choy or can’t find it you can use your favorite green. I highly recommend spinach if you like that.

Many of my recipes are very customizable to your tastes and this recipe is no different.

  • When it comes to stir fry recipes my rule is the more vegetables the better. Try adding zucchini, eggplant, celery, tomatoes and jalapeños for added spice.
  • If you are feeling adventurous try adding 1/2 of a pound of ground Italian sausage into the recipe or you can use 1/2 ground sausage and 1/2 ground pork. 
  • Feeling spicy? Add chili peppers, jalapeños, hot sauce or crushed red pepper. 
  • Do you like mushrooms? They would be a great addition to the stir-fry. 
  • This stir-fry works great over white or brown rice, noodles or in lettuce wraps.

  • 2 teaspoons lime juice
  • 2 Tablespoons freshly grated ginger
  • 2 Tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons red chili sauce
  • 2 teaspoons red chili garlic sauce {I use Huy Fong, Chili Garlic Sauce}, more or less for spiciness
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Garnish:

  • Sesame seeds
  • Peanuts
  • Serving options
  • White or brown rice

Instructions

 Cook the rice according to the package and set aside. While the rice cooks heat the 2 Tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet and add the onion, sautéing for 2 minutes. Add the garlic and the bell peppers and continue to sauté for 2 more minutes.

Add the ground pork and the matchstick carrots and continue to sauté until the pork is browned, about 6-8 minutes. Add the fresh lime juice, ginger, soy sauce, chili garlic sauce and stir. Mix in the bok choy {or green of your choice} and simmer until the bok choy is wilted, about 2 minutes. 

Add salt and pepper to taste along with crushed red pepper if you like a little spice. Garnish with fresh cilantro, chopped green onion and sesame seeds. 

Serve over a bed of your favorite rice, with rice noodles or even in a lettuce wrap. 

Notes

 

You can add whatever vegetables to this stir-fry that you like. Some ideas that I like are mushrooms, zucchini and tomatoes. 

I like to use bok choy when I can find it but you can use your favorite green, I also like spinach. 

You can spice this up more by adding more of the red chili garlic sauce and crushed red pepper.
