This Thai Pork Stir Fry is a lovely weeknight meal. It’s one that most of the family should enjoy very much.
There is nothing better than having a super easy recipe on hand to make on a busy weeknight. With a little chopping prep ahead of time, this meal is super easy to put together. Stir fries are great because you’re really just dirtying up one pan.
The noodles are done in another, I suppose… but I do have a recommendation. If you’re watching your calorie intake at all, serve this stir fry over zoodles instead. Zoodles are zucchini noodles. You can sometimes find them at your market already spiraled and ready to go, but you can certainly spiral them yourself at home using an Inspiralized spiralizer.
Just before serving, scrape the stir fry into a large bowl, and quickly stir fry the zoodles to soften them up slightly. Then serve the stir fry over the zoodles. It’s such a nice, light dinner. Or carb-it-up and use ACTUAL noodles!
If you’re serving this the zoodle way… and if you happen to be following Weight Watchers… this meal computes to 6 Weight Watchers points on the Freestyle plan.
Either way it is served, this is a delicious dinner recipe!
