Asian Style Pork
Asian Style Pork

Asian pork is a fantastic, flavourful dish that is my go to recipe on busy weekdays. It is incredibly easy to pull together (even if you forget to thaw the meat out ahead of time).

The bold flavour comes from using Sesame Oil and Chinese 5 Spice.

It was not long ago that using these flavours (without the benefit of a pre-made sauce) was far too intimidating for me to experiment with.

That changed when I decided to just give it a try. The worst that could happen would be that we hated it. But, we loved it from the start.

Asian pork goes great with:

  • White or brown rice
  • Noodles
  • I have even been known to add some leftovers into a wrap

As an added bonus, this recipe freezes perfectly. Sometimes, when I get home with bulk ground pork, I will double or triple the recipe. Then I just portion it out into freezer bags, label them, and throw them in the freezer.

This makes for even quicker meal preparation when the time comes.
