This pork stir-fry is a delicious, easy to make a mid-week meal that my family really loves. It’s a great recipe to get your kids to help with, from prepping the veggies to simply stirring it whilst it is cooking.

Serves 4


2 tbsp ghee or olive oil
3-4 garlic cloves, chopped
1 red onion, chopped
500g pork mince
ground black pepper, to taste
2 tbsp fish sauce
1 cup chicken broth/stock
1 tbsp tomato paste
1⁄2 tsp smoked paprika
2 Roma tomatoes, chopped
2 sweet potatoes, peeled & diced 1 medium carrot, peeled & diced 1 red capsicum, diced
1⁄2 cup peas


Heat the ghee or oil in a deep pan or wok. Sauté garlic and onion until it starts to soften. Add the pork mince and cook until brown. Season with ground black pepper and add the sh sauce.

Once the pork has browned, add the chicken broth and bring to a simmer. Stir in the tomato paste and smoked paprika. Add the tomatoes, potatoes and carrots and simmer until the root vegetables are slightly tender. Add the capsicum and peas. Continue to cook for a few more minutes until all the veggies are tender but not mushy.

Adjust the seasoning to taste. Serve with brown rice or cauliflower rice.
