Stir-fried Black pepper pork is such an easy way to do something delicious and healthy with lean pork. Stir-frying in general is one of the healthiest methods used for cooking Thai food. You can use a healthy oil and it doesn't take as much as deep frying something. It's also a great way to get all your colored, vitamin-rich vegetables. According to simple mom review's article on the benefits of stir-frying, it's more attractive, takes less time and is gorgeous in presentation. You can do it in front of your guest as well to add some entertainment value and a fantastic bouquet of good smells.
Ingredients I Used
So, we have a little trick you can add to your routine to save time and money. We usually work out in the evenings. We stop at the store that's on the way home and head to the clearance section of the meat department. We also go for the produce section. I don't mind sharing this idea as long as you are going to freeze it or cook it to a safe temperature right away. That's how we did this. We started with some lean pork chops, which are lean white meat. Then we just added black pepper and a bunch of healthy vegetables with some onions and peppers to give it some flavor. You can use whatever vegetables or peppers you want. Get the seeds out of your peppers to decrease the spice level. Other than that it's a pretty straightforward stir-fry.
