I’ve said it before; I’ll repeat it, and probably a million times after this. Sweet and spicy pork stir fry is one of the best ways to use up vegetables and eat vegetables. Not to mention they are super easy to make. You can use any vegetable, sauce, and meat (or no meat, try tofu).
This one was a kind of spur of the moment, clean out the fridge type of meal. I had broccoli, onions, peppers, and carrots that I had to use up. So I bought some orange marmalade for some recipe (no one eats it otherwise), ketchup, teriyaki sauce, sriracha and viola! I had a wonderfully flavorful stir fry ready in minutes.
Try this sweet and spicy pork stir fry the next time you are looking for a quick and easy meal. You won’t be disappointed!
