Don’t ever be worried to mix things up.
Remember that fry is a perfect time to use up and veg you’ve got hiding in the bottom of the fridge.
Maybe you don’t have any radishes to hand – don’t worry about it. Maybe you’ve got a yellow pepper instead of a red – just use up what you’ve got to prevent food waste.
Maybe you’re not a fan of pork and would prefer chicken or beef? Perhaps you want to ditch meat altogether and just have a vegetable stir fry. Whatever you choose it’s all ok.
Here are some great options you can use in the stir fry:
- green beans
- sweet peas
- onions (red or white)
- red or white cabbage
What can I serve pork stir fry with?
We’re big fans of adding noodles into the stir fry and letting it all absorb the flavours of the stir fry sauce. However, you can mix that up too.
You can serve your stir fry with your own favourite side. Maybe fried or boiled rice or different kinds of noodles.

- To make the stir fry sauce, mix the cornflour with the water and stir to make a thickening agent.

Add the cornflour thickening agent a little at a time to required consistency. (We like our sauce quite runny so used 1.5 tablespoons of thickening agent). Turn to a very low heat and leave simmering gently.
