This Ginger Pork Stir-Fry is an absolute WIN.
From pan to plate in under 15 minutes, this ginger pork stir-fry is SO yummy you’ll need to make extra next time and DEFINITELY add to the weekly rotation!
We start with thinly sliced boneless pork, I bought a large package of the boneless pork loin chops and then cut them on the diagonal until the pieces were paper thin. That also cuts down on the cooking time! Next up the ginger. I believe to really get the flavour PUNCH needed, you’ll want to use fresh ginger. One big chunk will only cost about 90 cents and you can store it in a plastic bag in the freezer until you need it again.
TIP: Once your ginger is frozen you can grate it right into your recipe!
How do you feel about Oyster sauce? Here’s the thing. I don’t enjoy seafood (gasp), I just don’t. I am a terrible Maritimer but it’s true! But something about oyster sauce and how sticky and sweet it is, gets me every time! To get technical with the definition: “The most common in modern use is a viscous dark brown condiment made from oyster extracts, sugar, salt and water thickened with corn starch. Some versions may be darkened with caramel, though high-quality oyster sauce is naturally dark.”– Wikipedia
So to recap. We have the fresh spicy ginger and the umami of sweet sticky oyster sauce paired with the crunchy peas and sweet pop of the corn knocks this dinner out of the park! PS You can easily switch the pork to chicken, and change the sweetness level of the sauce by adding or reducing the amount of sugar.
