Pork and Green-bean Stir Fry

It’s still early enough in the year that I’m making a conscious effort to stick to my New Year’s resolutions. In the spirit of my ‘cook at least four nights a week’ resolution, last night I tried this new recipe from Martha’s little FOOD magazine. It was easy and we loved it.


1 Pork Tenderloin
1 cup uncooked white rice
1 lb fresh green beans, trimmed
1 red bell pepper, sliced thinly
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar
2 tablespoons minced peeled fresh ginger
Pinch of red pepper flakes
1/2 cup peanuts, chopped
3 tablespoons olive oil


Mix soy sauce, rice vinegar and sugar and set aside. Boil rice, 2 cups of water, a bit of salt and a tablespoon of butter (optional) and then turn to low and cover to simmer for 25 minutes. Cut pork tenderloin into smallish strips. Heat 1 tablespoon oil over med high heat. Saute 1/2 of pork and ginger until pork is cooked through. Repeat with 1 more tablespoon oil and rest of pork and ginger. Meanwhile, boil green beans until just underdone. Then saute red bell pepper, green beans and last tablespoon of oil on high until red bell is tender. Add pork, peanuts and soy sauce mixture. Stir together and then serve over rice.

  1. Looks great! Bring some over. You can find us at the corner of….. London, UK.

    Congratulations on sticking with the resolutions. Mine are long gone.

  2. If you are interested at all.. Light and Tasty magazine is GREAT for that! Lots of super easy, healthy recipes and they are specific to the season. I love my subscription. Hopefully I will have my kitchen up and running (not enough stuff unpacked yet) and be able to get back into it..also I will hopefully have my blog back up and running since I don’t like the new yahoo one..(don’t tell Chris)…and i’ll be able to start sharing.
    Looks delicious! I’m copying this one!
