Pork and Cabbage Stir-Fry



6 servings

About $3.23 per serving

Cooking Spray
1 pound boneless pork chops, trimmed of fat and thinly sliced into pieces about ½-inch thick
½ teaspoon ground ginger or garlic powder
1 (16 oz.) bag frozen stir-fry vegetables, thawed or 1 (16-ounce) bag frozen snow peas, thawed
1 (8 oz.) can sliced water chestnuts, drained and rinsed
1 batch of Asian Cole Slaw
3 cups cooked brown rice
Red pepper flakes (optional)

  1. Spray a large nonstick pan with cooking spray. Over high heat, add pork pieces and ginger or garlic. Stir and cook about 1 minute.
  2. Add stir-fry vegetables and water chestnuts, stirring and cooking until pork is fully cooked and vegetables are warmed, another 2 to 3 minutes. Take off heat. Remove pork and vegetables from pan into a medium bowl.
  3. Spray the large nonstick pan with cooking spray again. Warm over high heat and add cole slaw, including all of its liquid. Stir and cook until wilted, about 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat.
  4. Add the vegetables and pork back into the pan. Stir and serve stir-fry with rice.

Cooking Tips: The longer the Asian Cole Slaw sits in the fridge, the more liquid that’s released from the slaw. Make sure to add all this delicious liquid into the stir-fry because it becomes the sauce for it.

Keep it Healthy: Stir-fry recipes are a quick and easy dinner that can use up any meat or vegetables leftovers in the fridge.

Tips: Check out the Asian/ International aisle in supermarkets for no salt added or low sodium canned vegetables to add oomph to a stir-fry like baby corn, water chestnuts, and bamboo shoots.
