I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Easy Pork Stir Fry

Easy peasy take-out fake-out! And totally customizable! Use all fresh veg instead of some frozen. Or use whatever frozen veg suits you. Like garlic? Add more. Don't like orange juice? Use pineapple juice. And if you're going to use pineapple juice, why not add some pineapple tidbits to the meal? 

3/4 lb pork loin, cut in strips
1 tbsp cornstarch
black pepper to taste
2 tbsps vegetable oil, divided
4 cups vegetables, 1 onion, 1 bell pepper, & frozen mixed veggies
4 tsps minced garlic
1 tsp minced ginger

1/4 cup water
1/2 cup orange juice
1/4 cup low sodium soya sauce
2 tbsps brown sugar
1 tbsp hoisin sauce
1/2 tsp sriracha sauce
1 tbsp cornstarch

Toss the pork strips with cornstarch and pepper. Heat 1 tbsp vegetable oil in a large skillet or wok and cook pork on medium high heat until almost cooked through. Then remove to a plate.
Add 1 tbsp vegetable oil to the skillet again and on medium high heat stir fry the onion, bell pepper and mixed frozen vegetables 2-4 minutes. Add garlic and ginger in the last minute.

Combine the sauce ingredients, whisking in the cornstarch, and pour over the veggies. Simmer a few minutes to thicken.

Now just return the pork to the pan, stir to coat, and cook 2 minutes to warm through.

Serve with your favourite rice or noodles.
