I’ve said it before, lunch is a hard meal for me! I get distracted, things get busy and I am not a fan of cooking meals for one! The habit of meal prepping the week before has definitely become my savor. This is nutritious Ground Pork Stir Fry is my other lunch special that I rotate throughout the week with my Turkey Chili with Quinoa .
Packed full of delicious veggies that good for the body and the brown rice is that extra dose of health benefits. Many people overlook ground pork as pork tends to be higher in sodium, however, Pork is an excellent source of many vitamins and minerals, including thiamin, zinc, vitamin B12, vitamin B6, niacin, phosphorus, and iron.
Ground Pork Stir Fry

I love that it’s a healthy less expensive as ground pork tends to be easier on the wallet but realistically, any ground meat will do.

Are you ready to learn how to make a delicious AND nutritious Ground Pork Stir Fry?

Ground Pork Stirfry
Ingredients
  • 1 cup uncooked brown rice
  • ½ pound ground pork
  • 1.5 cups mushrooms cut into chunks or slices
  • ½ medium onion sliced into wedges
  • 1 cup carrots julienned, or cut into match sticks (I used a julienne peeler)
  • 3 Tablespoons grated fresh ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic minced or grated
  • 3 cups leafy greens I used spinach but you could also use kale, collards, bok choy
  • 3 Tablespoons soy sauce divided
  • ½ Tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder or red pepper flakes
  • garnish: sesame seeds and green onions
Instructions
  1. Cook rice according to instructions. (I used my Instant Pot  on the rice setting for 25 minutes)

  2. Heat wok over high heat. Add ground pork/beef and let cook, undisturbed for a few minutes until it is dark brown on the bottom. Flip and repeat on the other side. When both sides are dark, add 1 Tablespoon soy sauce. Break meat apart cooking until it is browned on all sides. Remove from pan and set aside.

  3. Reduce heat to medium-high. Drain off most of the oil, leaving enough to cook the vegetables (about a tablespoon or so). If you have lean meat, you might need to add a Tablespoon of butter. Add the onions and mushrooms and sauté until the mushrooms are a little brown. Add the carrots and cook for about 5 minutes more. Add the ginger, garlic, chili powder, rice vinegar, 1 Tablespoon soy sauce, and greens. Cook until wilted, then mix in the meat.

  4. Add remaining 1 Tablespoon soy sauce if needed, and adjust seasoning as desired. Serve over brown rice!
