This Pork and Scallion Stir Fry is a quick and easy pork stir fry dish that can be enjoyed for lunch. It takes less than 25 minutes to cook, and it is tasty. This dish can get you to ditch your plan to go and grab something from the Chinese takeout because this is as good (or can even be better), costs less, and was cooked by no other than yourself.
The key to a successful pork stir fry is the quality of pork you will use. Try to use tender cuts such as pork tenderloin. You can also use pork shoulders to keep a tiny amount of fat there; it helps keep the meat moist.
Make sure that the meat is thinly sliced. This will make it quicker to cook. I used light soy sauce for this recipe. However, you may use regular soy sauce if you want this to be a bit salty. The amount of ground black pepper depends on you. Feel free to use less if you are not a big fan of it.
This Pork and Scallion Stir Fry is best served over warm rice. I usually arrange everything in a small bowl to carry it around. Happy cooking!
