Pork Stir Fry

We had a delicious supper last night!  With so much on my mind lately, (my classes begin today) I needed to make a healthy meal that wouldn't take up a lot of my time.  A couple of pork tenderloins were hiding out in my refrigerator, so I decided to use one in a stir fry; the other one was slathered with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, thyme, and garlic and left to marinate for the next day or two.  

I tend to make stir fry often, but the ingredients may vary depending on what I all have on hand.  Here's what went into this one.  Recipe is posted below~

The veggies!

The flavor!
*Note I do NOT use Agave Nectar anymore or this Teriyaki sauce.  Both are highly processed and contain dirty ingredients.  Honey and some aminos might be good to substitute.

Put it all together.

Pure deliciousness!

 This recipe is super easy and fast to make.  In less than 30 minutes, you will have dinner on the table!

Pork Stir Fry

1 pork tenderloin or 2-3 boneless skinless chicken breasts - cut into bite size pieces, about 1-2 inches
1 TBSP olive oil Coconut Oil
2-3 cloves of garlic - minced
1/2 cup onion - chopped however fine you like
1 green pepper - sliced into thick strips
1 cup sliced baby carrots
1 16 oz. bag of coleslaw mix
sugar snap peas - however many you want
1 TBSP Teriyaki Sauce
1 TBSP grated ginger - chopped
2 TBSP Agave Nectar  Raw Honey

Directions:  Heat oil in a pan on medium/high heat, and add the meat.  Stir constantly 3-5 minutes to keep meat from getting overdone.  When meat begins to turn gray (no pink) on the outside, add garlic and onion and stir for 1-2 more minutes.  Add carrots and green pepper.  Keep stirring and mixing.  After 3 minutes, add the remaining ingredients; stir just until the coleslaw begins to wilt and slightly soften.
Servings vary depending on the size of meat and vegetables added.  This meal generally serves 4-6.

Note:  Aside from the onions, the vegetables that take longer to soften should always be added in first.  The veggies should still be slightly crispy when you eat them.  Soggy stir fry is not so great, so make sure you keep stirring away so everything gets heated evenly and not overdone.
