Author Notes: This is a great recipe to have in your back pocket, so to speak. It also comes together very quickly, especially if you have all your ingredients prepped ( can even do the night before)
Great for both weeknights and dinner parties, it showcases lots of colorful, vibrant veggies with just a touch of meat - both scrumptious and healthy! I especially love its versatility - you can substitute the pork for chicken or beef, and change the veggies listed ….not fond of green beans? Throw in broccoli instead. A carrot hater? How about cabbage… get the picture. Do keep the colorful bell peppers, if possible - I use red, green, yellow and orange for gorgeous color and crunch.
The final “oomph” - finish off with green onions, fresh coriander, cashews, a sprinkle of red pepper flakes and sesame oil
And , it goes without saying, if you are one of those people who detests fresh coriander (!!) throw in fresh basil instead - and peanuts taste just as good as cashews. See what I mean about versatility? Pile the stir fry onto a mound of steaming, fragrant Jasmine rice, and you will have happy diners contentedly munching away!
