Pork Stir Fry with Plum Sauce
Stir Fry is my number one go to meal when I want something I can put on the table in 15 minutes that is still healthy and packed full with vegetables. It’s also a very budget friendly meal, since you can use any vegetables you have lurking in the back of your fridge. This meal is part of our 5 night quick and easy meal plan, which you can check out here.
I used pork mince in my stir fry as it’s budget friendly, but you could also use pork strips, or even chicken mince or strips. It really is the kind of meal that you can just use whatever you happen to have on hand. I always like to keep a range of sauces on hand to easily whip up sauces and marinades, and for this stir fry I used Fountain Plum sauce along with a little soy sauce and honey. The combination of the three makes for the most amazing fruity, yet slightly salty and sweet sauce that even my kids inhaled.
The Stir Fry can be served over noodles, rice or even cauliflower rice if you want to boost the vegetable content even more.
