This is really yummy. I know I say that about all of my recipes, but it’s true. You already know I love Chinese food, so this one should be no surprise! My current obsession is with this 6 ingredient Chinese green beans and pork stir-fry!
I’m a huge fan of non-CAFO meat but sometimes beef is just too expensive for my budget. So along with these tips for saving money and eating real food, I love to use ground pork. We’ll toss some on salads and have a Chipotle-style taco salad (this dressing is yummy!).
But this Chinese-style pork and green beans is probably our favorite. It’s easy to throw together. It’s only six ingredients. It’s all real food. And clean-up is two pans. Bam!
If you’re blessed to have Costco nearby, I go through their frozen organic green beans like there’s no tomorrow. And if I’m in an extra hurry, I can use their organic minced garlic in place of fresh!
I love when people ask where I get our beef, pork, chicken from because that’s definitely been a process – I’ve learned what to ask my farmers and have finally found an excellent, competitive source of pastured pork! We’ve loved Peaceful Pastures for years!
