Pork Stir Fry

I can’t remember the last time I made stir fry, it always seems like a lazy dish to make… Well it IS super easy, but for me, the key is to get the seasoning right, as with any dish really.
Stir fry is actually such a great weeknight dinner, it’s one of those hearty all-in-one-eat-it-in-front-of-the-TV-from-a-bowl dishes.

You will need:
Pork steaks, cut into strips
Cabbage
1 onion
2 or 3 carrots, ribboned
1 large broccoli
Soy sauce
Sesame oil
Butter
Olive oil
Garlic

Start by sautéing the onions in a chunk of butter. When they’re soft, add the garlic and pork strips and brown them, season with salt & pepper. When they’re just about cooked, add the shredded cabbage and carrot ribbons. Add a dash of sesame oil and a splash of soy sauce {both to your taste, but remember the sesame oil has quite an overpowering taste, so go easy on that one – I’d say a tablespoon is good}.

Let everything cook, but don’t overcook – soggy stir fry is not a good thing!
When you’re almost ready to serve, add the broccoli florets and let it cook for another minute or so – again, do not let them go soft – just cooked and still crunchy.

Drizzle with olive oil and enjoy! X
