This has got to be the tastiest stir-fry out there for the least amount of work! I love it. It is my go-to recipe for those hectic days when I don’t have much time but want to feed my loved ones a nutritious meal. I have to admit, originally it took me quite some time to even try this one because of the ketchup in the ingredients (doesn’t that sound really weird?!) but trust me, it works. It works really well! What’s great about it too is that you can use just about whatever veggies you have in your fridge and need to use up. That goes for the meat too (although I highly recommend using pork… sooooo much better than chicken!) The vegetables listed are what I usually like to use but you can do any combination you feel like. I always make this with broccoli but on the day of this picture, I was out. It felt so strange not to have green in my stir fry I added a side of green beans!

4 cups hot cooked rice
2 Tb soy sauce
2 Tb ketchup
1/2 tsp ground ginger
2 cloves garlic, minced
3/4 lb pork sirloin chops, thinly sliced (or boneless, skinless chicken)
3 Tb canola oil, divided
1 medium onion, sliced into 1/2 inch wedges
4 small sweet red peppers, thinly sliced (or 1 red bell pepper)
1-2 cups loosely packed red cabbage, thinly sliced
**above are the vegetables pictured but here are a few of my other favorites:
While your rice is cooking, mix together the marinade. Mix soy sauce, ketchup, ginger and garlic. Add pork and let stand for 15 minutes.
Heat 1 Tb of oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions, peppers, and cabbage (or any vegetable – total should be around 3-4 cups) and stir-fry until crisp-tender. Remove mixture from skillet.
Heat 2 Tb oil in same skillet. Add pork, including all the marinade, and stir-fry until cooked. Stir in vegetable mixture. Serve over hot cooked rice.
*the Sriracha sauce is an optional ingredient – one I rarely use but once in awhile I will add a dab of it – just a little because it is really hot! You can add it to the marinade or at the end if you want to add it to taste.
