Last week I shared a quick and easy recipe for Pan Fried Pork Medallions with Black Pepper Sauce, which went down really well with the family. Another cut of pork that I buy quite often is the shoulder, which I either slow cook and use for pulled pork or a roast dinner, or I buy the pork shoulder steaks for the barbecue. This time of the year when it's getting a bit chilly for outdoor cooking I usually opt for a stir fry, and this Crispy Pork and Broccoli Stir Fry is full of flavour, and definitely hits the stir fry spot. If I was making it just for myself and the husband I would also add lots of fresh chilli, but the kids don't like it too spicy so I leave the chilli out and add a few chilli flakes afterwards to ours.
The pork in this dish has such a rich flavour and look, that it could easily be mistaken for beef, but it costs less than half the price of rump steak, or stir fry beef strips.
Stir fries are a great midweek meal for the family as they are so quick to make, and having the addition of broccoli and mushrooms also adds those valuable vegetables to the kids diets. Throw a handful of peas into the rice and you get an extra portion of your 5 a day!
