Friday Food: Gingery, Garlicky Stir Fry Pork

Technically this isn't a recipe from a magazine, but I did see the link in a magazine and it's my rule* and I am interpreting it any way I see fit today!!

I discovered this recipe about a month ago, and even in the dead of Winter it's a life saver. It takes less than 15 minutes to prepare and cook this stir fry and the rice too - in my rice cooker.

I don't like fresh coriander and so I omitted it, and I did add some hot dried chilli flakes, not having a fresh chilli on hand. Pak choy was on special for $1 a bunch and so I used that instead of snow peas.
Here is my version of the Sunrice recipe!!

NB A tablespoon is 20ml here, but only 15 in the UK and USA

Ginger, Garlicky Stir Fry Pork   serves 3 (I think)

  • 400g lean pork, cut into strips
  • 2 tbspn fresh ginger, cut into thin strips
  • 4 cloves of garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 - 1 tspn dried chilli flakes or 1 fresh red chilli
  • 3 tbspn Chinese cooking wine or dry sherry  (60ml)
  • 6 tbspn soy sauce (120ml)
  • 1 tbspn cornflour
  • 3 tbspn vegetable oil
  • 1 bunch pak choy or similar Asian Greens, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 3 or 4 spring onions, sliced
  • 1 cup Basmati or Jasmine rice, cooked

Place pork, ginger, garlic, red onion, wine, soy sauce and cornflour in a bowl and mix together gently.


Heat the oil in a wok or frypan. Add the pork mixture and stir fry quickly until the pork browns. Add the greens and cook for a further 2 minutes.

Fry, greens, fry
Serve with hot rice - squeeze over some lemon juice and top with the stir fry pork and sprinkle over the spring onions.

It's a recipe that's very easy to adapt to use whatever you have in the fridge: I've added red capsicum or broccolini. It doesn't keep perfectly in the fridge, but I do eat it the next day and I think the flavour actually improves.

Am making those delicious looking chocolate chip brownies this afternoon and when I looked up the recipe found the friday pork one. Definitely have to make this too now-one week night.

That looks delish!!! Always love pork and ginger stir-fry combo :)


Looks really good. It's great for winter - hot rice & stir fry. We had rice & butter curry last night & it was delicious.


I made the ginger pork and coconut rice from Delicious and was disappointed. I liked all the ingredients and had them on hand. The leftovers were better the next day but I was surprised.

I might give this one a go instead. I had pork with green curry sauce and vegetables tonight and enjoyed that.

Hi Cindy,
I love the look of that stir fry but I think I'd add the fresh coriander I love it! And ginger and chilli what a great combo!
I'm posting under my new school blog which has been taking up my blogging time of late. So I might comment under either blog depending which one I'm using at the time
Love to your girls hope you've all been well.


stunning combination of delicious tasty goodness!


Tasty and healthy!
