Easy Ground Pork Stir Fry Ingredients List

You’ll need just a handful of ingredients to make this healthy pork stir fry. No trip to the Asian market necessary (though I highly recommend it!).

In this delicious ground pork stir fry, we’ve got: ground pork. Mushrooms and spinach. Plenty of rice. And a delicious peanut sauce to bring it all together. I really like meals that include all components (protein, carb, vegetable, flavor) in one. It simplifies meals and makes cooking a weeknight dinner at home doable!

  • Rice – You can also serve the pork stir fry over noodles or cauliflower rice.
  • Garlic – Use fresh or frozen garlic for a short cut.
  • Fresh ginger – Using plenty of ginger gives this stir fry lots of Asian flavor. Use frozen minced ginger for a shortcut.
  • White mushrooms – Can also use any mushroom.
  • Green onions – Save both the green parts and and the scallion whites.
  • Peanut butter – Creamy peanut butter works best.
  • Soy sauce – You can use low-sodium soy sauce or coconut aminos.
  • Sriracha – Sambal oelek or chili flakes are another great way to add some heat to the healthy pork stir fry.
  • Honey – Honey works well, but you can also use brown sugar
  • Rice vinegar – Or you can use fresh lime juice.
  • Olive oil – Use any oil suitable for stir fries. Vegetable oil, avocado oil, peanut oil, or even coconut oil will also work.
  • Ground pork – You can’t make ground pork stir fry without the pork!
  • Sea salt
  • Spinach – Or use some of the other vegetables that are listed below.

  • Ground Pork – Obviously it won’t be an asian pork recipe, but still delicious! Virtually any ground meat will work. Ground beef, ground turkey, or ground chicken would be tasty, just make sure it has a little fat (aka, not fat free!).
