Stir Fried Pork and Mixed Veggies
Stir-fries are perfect for busy weeknights because they take under 15 minutes to prepare, and you can us any protein or vegetables you wish!
I chose to use lots of colorful veggies and lean pork, but you can also make this with chicken, beef, shrimp or even tofu if you wish. The stir fry sauce has a slight kick from the sriracha which I love, but if you’re not a fan of spicy food, leave it out (or add more if you like it HOT!)
I ate a big bowl of this and felt completely satisfied, but if you want to serve this with brown rice, perfect! I am loving Trader Joe’s frozen brown rice, it’s so good and such a great time saver! If you want to keep it low carb you could make my favorite Cauliflower “Fried Rice” on the side.
