Ground pork cooking in a wok

I bought these blocks of ground pork from a company called FarmFoods (you can learn more about them here) which provides 100% grass-fed beef and other healthy meats. This Heritage ground pork was extremely tender and extremely tasty and is definitely my new go-to for ground pork recipes.

How do I make Ground Pork Stir Fry?

First, let’s add a tiny bit of oil (with a high smoke point) and start cooking it up. Once it’s brown, remove it from the pan and set it aside for later.

Oh and put up a pot of brown rice before you start browning the meat. That’ll typically take about 20-25 minutes to cook so make sure you start that first.

In the same wok, add the zucchini and carrots and season with salt and pepper. A good stir fry means quick cook time on high heat. Turn the burner up and stir frequently and cook the vegetables until they’re tender.

Rice added to stir fry

Let’s add the meat back into the wok and also the brown rice.

And mix all together until warm…which won’t take long because remember the burner is still on high heat. Cook until the rice starts to brown a bit.

Stir fry sauce mixed with pork mixture

Ok now we’ll add Kristine’s stir fry sauce. I love this sauce because, one is tastes great, and two because you just mix all the ingredients up in a mason jar of whatever you have with a top and just pour it on.

Great job on the sauce Kristine…well done!

This was absolutely delicious. The sauce was spot on and the mix of zucchini and carrots was a great compliment. Hope you enjoy!


Is Heritage pork good for you?

I’m no nutritionist, but I will say that it’s definitely better for you. It’s well-marbled which gives is a much more complex taste and better flavor, but in terms of healthiness it has more vitamins and minerals than grain-fed meat. It’s also high in antioxidants, omega-3, and good fatty acids. So while you should probably always watch your red meat intake, eating grass-fed is definitely better for you!
