This year one of the things I wanted to do was to teach my youngest how to cook, I mean she loves to bake and can whip up a gorgeous batch of cookies or cupcakes but she very rarely cooks anything else. This year I hope to change that. It will stand her in good stead when she flies the nest and her eldest sister was glad of the knowledge when she went to College. She decided she wanted to try making the Pork Stir-Fry I had on my Meal Plan and her favourite flavour is Sweet and Sour so we came up with this Easy Pork Stir- Fry with Cashew Nuts.
Easy Pork Stir- Fry with Cashew Nuts
- Pork cut into strips I got mine pre-cut in Supervalu
- 1/2 an Onion chopped finely
- Sweet Red Pepper – cut into strips
- 1 Carrot cut into small batons
- 1 tin of pineapples in juice
- Hoisin 1tb spoon
- Sweet Chilli sauce 1tb spoon
- Five spice – 1tsp
- Rice Wine Vinegar 1/2 tablespoon –
- Cornflour 2 tsp
- A large handful of Cashew Nuts
- Splash of Soy sauce
- Sesame Oil
THE HOW TO BIT.
First get your semi -willing teenager into the kitchen to help cut up the vegetables. I am glad the meat was pre-cut she wasn’t over keen on handling it much.
- Heat a wok with sesame oil in until hot then add the Pork and the finally chopped onion and cook until the meat is well cooked.
- In a bowl put the Hoisin, Sweet chilli, a splash of Soy sauce, Five spice, Rice wine vinegar and the about 1/2 the juice from the pineapples ( more if you want a thinner doxycycline drugstore sauce ) and the corn flour and mix well – I usually add the cornflour first and mix to a paste with the pineapple juice and then add the rest.
- Add the rest of the vegetables and pineapple chopped into chunks into your wok with the pork. Stir – fry until lightly cooked
- Throw in your Cashew Nuts
- Then add your sweet and sour-ish sauce and cook until sauce thickens
PRINTABLE RECIPE HERE
Served with Whole wheat Noodles which the youngest teenager loves apparently. That is a thumbs up from both teenagers.
We broke out the chopsticks and devoured the lot. I have to say it was gorgeous for her first attempted and she said it was easy to make. Not great on presentation but totally top notch food. I have said she can cook more often and she thinks this was all her idea !! Thank goodness she doesn’t read my blog that often.
