Reviews for Easy Ginger Pork Stir-Fry
"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!"
"The sauce for this stir fry is very good! I added snow peas, mushrooms, onion, yellow bell pepper, and carrots as oppose to the frozen vegetable blend. I served it with brown rice to make it a well-rounded quick and healthy dinner."
"I'd definitely make this again and it was easy"
"Very good and easy. Few changes...used chicken broth, fresh green beans, added couple dashes of sesame oil and an onion. Will make again."
"It was Fantastic! I would use this same sauce with other meats. Great flavors, and just enough heat from the crushed red pepper flakes."
"Rating this a 4 given the changes I made, but this is an overall terrific starting point. The changes made it take a little longer, but are totally worth it. I used real ginger and garlic (both from a jar to save time), chicken instead of beef broth, left out the pepper flakes so our young daughter would eat it and added dark sesame oil (maybe 10 drops) along with some leftover (previously cooked) pork chops that I chopped up with every fresh veggie in the fridge. The result was Delish! This is my new favorite recipe for Asian @ home. Do yourself a favor and try it!"
"Used carrots, celery, onion, red pepper, and cabbage for vegetable mix. Chicken broth instead of beef broth."
"It was a tad too spicy for us; won't eliminate the crushed red pepper flakes but will reduce it by about 1/2."
"This is a keeper! Classic Asian taste, and it comes together quickly. Very tasty."
"Not only is this a good recipe it's fast, east, and versatile. It uses things I have in my pantry. I've also substituted the stir-fry blend with vegetable on hand and it was great."
"We really enjoyed this. If you don't like heat, you might want to go easy on the red pepper flakes... we found it a bit spicy (which we like)"
