A sticky pork stir fry with a delicious homemade sauce. It is so easy to make this great family meal.
This Pork Stir Fry is easy to make and tastes amazing. Made from delicious New Zealand pork steaks, broccoli and a homemade stir fry sauce, this is a meal the whole family will enjoy. Served with hot rice and a sprinkling of sesame seeds this dish proves you don’t have to cook complicated recipes to get great flavours.
There’s something really satisfying about making your own sauces. Especially when you have most of the ingredients in the cupboard already! If you don’t have sesame oil you could substitute this for a neutral oil, however, it really does add a lovely flavour to the meat.
How to make Pork Stir Fry:
To begin, whisk all of the ingredients for the stir fry sauce together, then set aside. Next, heat the sesame oil in a large non stick frying pan or wok. Add the pork and quickly brown it on all sides, about 5 minutes.
While the meat cooks, place the broccoli in a bowl or jug then pour boiling water over it. Drain and add to the pan. Add the stir fry sauce to the centre of the pan, bring to a simmer then stir through the pork and broccoli.
Keep stirring the dish over a medium heat until the sauce has thickened and the pork is cooked all the way through. Serve immediately on top of steamed rice with a sprinkle of sesame seeds.
Common questions about pork stir fry:
Which cuts of meat should I use for this meal? This meal works best with pork steaks, or pre-diced pork meat. Avoid chops or cuts of meat with bones in them. This recipe would also be great with diced chicken, beef or tofu.
Can I use different vegetables? Absolutely. You could add in or substitute the broccoli for bok choy, carrot or capsicum.
