Added about 1/2lb. mushrooms. Will also add 1/2 onion next time to balance out flavor & texture. Used 27 oz. pork loin & doubled sauce. This recipe is a winner.
Stir-Fried Pork and Green Beans
This quick and easy stir-fry hits all the right notes, with savoriness from fish sauce and garlic, sweetness from a little sugar and spicy heat from pepper flakes. Thin slices of ultra-tender pork contrast the crisp snap of green beans. Serve with steamed rice and, if you like, additional fish sauce at the table.
tablespoons fish sauce
tablespoons unseasoned rice vinegar
Love this recipe!
The seasoning balance is spot on. I added sautéed oyster mushrooms (a surprise find at our tiny local market) and a hefty scallion with the pork. I also used what I had in the freezer and fridge: funky, oddly shaped sirloin pork chops on the bone and 8 oz of sugar snap peas instead of green beans; I took the pork meat off the bone [and made a stock of the bones]. But I stuck to the balance of fish sauce, garlic, sugar, vinegar, hot pepper flakes, and cilantro, and the techniques and order of prep. This is delicious and got high compliments from the family.
Excellent, have also done this with shrimp instead of pork. Works very well, cut the cooking time with shrimp.
Great idea! Am going to make this yet again, and hadn’t occurred to me to use shrimp. Thank you for the suggestion!
This recipe is so delicious it’s in my regular rotation. I also add sliced white onion, sautéing and setting them aside between the green bean step and the pork step. Phenomenal.
1 year later, I’m still making this one - but this most recent time, I made it with 1/4 inch thick slices of tofu, instead of the pork. I have to tell you, it worked REALLY well. It’s absolutely delicious, and the recipe really impressed my vegetarian boyfriend. 5 stars!
