stir-fry with ground pork and vegetables

A quick and easy stir-fry with ground pork and vegetables is not only budget-friendly but also delicious. Here’s a simple recipe based on the ingredients you mentioned:
– 1 lb ground pork
– 1 cup rice (instant or regular)
– 1/2 onion, sliced
– 1 cup matchstick carrots
– Bok choy or any dark leafy greens, chopped
– Mushrooms, sliced
– 1 thumb-sized piece of ginger, minced
– 1-2 cloves garlic, minced
– 2-3 tablespoons soy sauce (adjust to taste)
– Red pepper flakes (to taste)
– Green onions (optional, for garnish)
– Cooking oil (vegetable or canola)
1. Start by cooking the rice according to the package instructions. While the rice is cooking, you can prepare the stir-fry.
2. Heat a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat and add a bit of cooking oil.
3. Add the minced ginger and garlic to the hot pan. Sauté for about 30 seconds until fragrant.
4. Add the ground pork to the skillet. Break it apart with a spatula and cook until it’s browned and cooked through, usually about 5-7 minutes. If there’s excess fat, you can drain it.
5. Add the sliced onion, matchstick carrots, and mushrooms to the skillet. Stir-fry these ingredients with the pork until they start to soften, usually another 5-7 minutes.
6. Toss in the chopped bok choy (or your choice of dark leafy greens) and cook until they wilt down, which should take just a couple of minutes.
7. Season the stir-fry with soy sauce and red pepper flakes for some heat. Adjust the soy sauce and red pepper flakes to your taste.
8. Once the rice is ready, serve the stir-fry over a bed of rice.
9. Garnish with sliced green onions if you have them.
10. Enjoy your quick and easy ground pork stir-fry!
This recipe is not only tasty but also versatile. You can customize it with your favorite vegetables or add a different protein if you like. It’s a great choice for a satisfying and budget-friendly meal.
