Reviews for Easy Ginger Pork Stir-Fry
"I had no plans for dinner last night so I found this recipe and decided to make it. I used fresh vegetables and fresh ginger and garlic. I also reduced the sugar to 1 teaspoon of coconut sugar. I made it with coconut rice. It was amazing. I have added this to my repertoire of recipes and shall be making it from time to time. Thank you for the recipe."
"Love this recipe!! So delicious!!"
"Made this for the second time tonight and will be using this sauce recipe from now on - minus the red pepper flakes - we used those the first time and thought it was too spicy. This time I just used vegetables I had on hand, snow peas, asparagus, red pepper, onions and water chestnuts. It was great. I think you could use any combination of vegetables and meats and it would be good because the sauce is so good."
"I made this a number of times and love it ! I substituted the frozen vegetables for fresh and it was still amazing. I love the flavor of the sauce. Keeper."
"This recipe rocked my socks!! I had leftover ginger pork which worked perfectly, along with all the fresh veggies I had on hand (peas, cabbage, carrots, onion). I also used fresh minced garlic and ginger root! It's quickly and easy to throw together, and the flavor definitely beats takeout! I doubled the sauce recipe, and also substituted flour for the cornstarch, and it came out great!"
"I'd definitely make this again and it was easy"
"It was Fantastic! I would use this same sauce with other meats. Great flavors, and just enough heat from the crushed red pepper flakes."
