My husband loves Chinese food and had been craving some when I had planned to make stir fry. So he was excited when I told him that was for dinner.
Since I don’t have much time to cook dinner before I need to have it on the table, I cut the pieces smaller especially the broccoli. My husband does not like broccoli but ate it when I cut it into smaller pieces.
During dinner, the Wee One made chopsticks out of two spoons so he could scoop up the food better. It as so funny! (I wish I got a picture of how he was eating dinner.)

Pork (or Chicken) Stir Fry
Stars of the recipe:
- 1 lb. pork chops or chicken, chopped into smaller pieces
- 3 c. vegetables, diced into smaller pieces (Examples: celery, carrots (peeled first), onions, peas (do not dice), broccoli) – Use your imagination and clean out your vegetable drawers
- 1/4 c. soy sauce (I used low sodium.)
- 2 Tbsp. ground ginger
- 1 Tbsp. granulated garlic or 2 Tbsp. minced garlic
- 2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
- Heat up 1 Tbsp. of oil in a saute pan on medium heat.
- Once the oil is heated up, add the pork or chicken. Cook the pork or chicken until no longer pink. (5 to 10 minutes)
- Once the pork or chicken is cooked, remove from the pan. Tent a piece of foil over it to keep it warm.
- Add another 1 Tbsp. of oil to pan. Add the diced veggies except for the peas. Cook until softened. (5ish minutes)
- Place the pork or chicken back in the pan with the veggies. Add the peas, soy sauce, ginger, and garlic. Cook for a few minutes longer.
- Serve over rice.
- Enjoy with a fortune cookie!
