Recipe Tips and Notes

  • You can add oil to the pan if desired, but the fat from the pork should be enough for cooking.
  • Use a large skillet to prevent the pork from overlapping too much, ensuring a great texture.
  • Feel free to get creative by adding vegetables such as garlic, snow peas, and bell peppers to the stir fry.
  • For a satisfying meal, pair this stir-fried sliced pork with jasmine rice, a slightly jammy egg, and seasoned spinach.

Make Ahead Tips

  • Meal Prep: Once cooled, store the cooked pork in an airtight container for up to 4 days in the fridge.
  • Reheat: To reheat, use a stovetop skillet, air fryer, or microwave. The air fryer will add crispiness and enhance the flavor.
