Thai Pork Stir Fry

Thai Pork Stir Fry

This is one of my favorite weekday dinners – a super easy Thai pork stir fry I can whip up when I’m zombie-tired.

You can substitute ground pork for ground turkey, chicken and beef and the results will be the same – a spicy savory meal that cooks up in less than 15 minutes.

The fish sauce, lime juice and cilantro all give the dish that wonderful zip and freshness that Thai cuisine is known for.

Serve with rice and a fried egg or as a filling for lettuce wraps. Either way, you’ll love it.
