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!

And this is my favorite coconut oil, soy sauce (gluten-free and non-GMO!) and chili flakes.
