I realized that I don’t make stir fry nearly as often as I should. Holy yumminess, Batman…this Garlic Ginger Pork Stir Fry recipe was so easy, delicious, and pretty healthy too.
This could be made with chicken or shrimp, but I was craving pork this week…
and since I’m the one who makes dinner around here I get my way quite often 😉 .
I made more than I knew we would eat so I could meal prep the rest for dinner later in the week when I knew we would be busy, busy.
How to Make Garlic Ginger Pork Stir Fry
I made the sauce the night before and used some of it to marinate the thinly sliced pork overnight.
It also cut down on some of the work making this on a busy weeknight.
The sauce is soy sauce, hoisin sauce, garlic, ginger paste, lemongrass paste, and some Sriracha for a little spice.

I used my big cast iron skillet and cooked the pork first in some sesame oil.
Set the pork aside and cook these gorgeous veggies in the same skillet.
After about 5 to 8 minutes, they should be cooked perfectly like this…
Once the veggies are cooked to perfection, add the pork back into the skillet.
Along with the remaining garlic ginger sauce for a few more minutes.
Serve with green onions and sesame seeds on top of your Garlic Ginger Pork Stir Fry and enjoy 🙂
