Hello there– Do you hit nights that you just don’t want to summon up a dinner?? Me too. Happy for us last night was 99 cent Taco Tuesday!!
But if you do want to put dinner on the table, here’s a meal that you can cook up in the time it takes your brown rice to cook up. Set the rice on to simmer and start dropping stir fry ingredients into a skillet. Quick & Easy.
BROCCOLI & PORK STIR FRY
1 cup brown (or white) rice
1 pound thin pork cutlets, sliced to bite sized strips
2 tab. olive oil
salt & freshly ground pepper
2 small heads of broccoli
1/2 cup chopped carrots
1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
ganish: 2 sliced green onions
1/2 cup water
2 tab. soy sauce
3 tab. brown sugar
1 tab. constarch
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp. Thai chili sauce (optional)
Cook the rice according to the directions on the package.
Heat the olive oil in a skillet (or wok). Cook the pork on high for just 3 or 4 minutes until it is browned, but still tender. Salt and pepper the meat while it cooks. Remove it from the skillet.
Chop the broccoli to bite sized bits and cook it in the microwave for 3 or 4 minutes in a bit of salted water, until it is tender, but not mushy.
In the same skilled at add the carrots and cook for 4 minutes until they start to get soft. Add in the red pepper and cook just 1 minute more.
Then shake together all the sauce ingredients in a container with a tight fitting lid until it is all blended. Add it to the carrots in the skillet and stir on medium heat a couple minutes until it thickens. Add in the meat and broccoli and stir to cover it all with sauce.
Layer the rice and then the sauce & stir fry on a pretty platter. Garnish with chopped green pepper. Eat it up nice and hot!
