One thought on “Thai Pork Stir Fry

  1. My sauce turned out a bit spicy. I ended up adding some more sugar to balance it out. I also floured my pork before browning it. I think it helps in the browning process and also helps thicken the sauce a bit.

    As a note, if you taste as you go along (as you should), the sauce will seem super salty before it goes over the meat and vegetables. I suggest using low sodium chicken broth and soy sauce. The saltiness did seem to cook out though.

    Personally, I don’t like stir frying with a frozen mix. I used one each of red, yellow, orange and green bell peppers and a couple medium onions.

    All in all, a delicious recipe, though I would cut down on the cayenne a little bit and add a touch more ginger and garlic.
