How To Make Pork Stir Fry with Green Onion

This fuss-free quick pork stir fry is perfect for nights when you want a tasty meal with the least effort possible. The green onions brighten up this dish.

Preparation: 20 minutes
Cooking: 5 minutes
Total: 25 minutes



  • 1lbpork loin,or boneless pork chops
  • 2tbspsoy sauce
  • 1tspsugar
  • 1tspcornstarch
  • 4tbsppeanut oil,or canola oil
  • 5clovesgarlic,thinly sliced
  • 12scallions,or green onions, sliced diagonally into 1 to 2-inch pcs, green and white parts included
  • ½tspsesame oil,optional
  • cooked rice,to serve


  1. Put pork slices under some plastic wrap or wax paper and pound them thin with a rubber mallet, meat mallet or even an empty wine bottle. The slices should be about ¼ inch thick. Cut the pork across the grain into thin strips, about 1½ inches long.

  2. Put the soy sauce, sugar, and cornstarch into a large bowl and whisk to combine. Add the pork strips to the bowl with the marinade and toss to coat completely. Set aside for at least 10 minutes.

  3. Heat the peanut oil in a wok or large sauté pan on high heat. When the oil is hot (shimmering but not smoking) add the garlic slices and stir-fry for about 30 seconds until they begin to turn brown at the edges.

  4. Add the pork strips and stir-fry for about 90 seconds, stirring constantly, until the pork changes color.

  5. Add the sliced green onions and continue to stir-fry for another minute, or until the green onions wilt. Turn off the heat and stir in the sesame oil, if using.

  6. Serve immediately. Serve alone (paleo and low carb), or with rice.
