Crispy Pork Stir-Fry

pork stir fry with almond sauce and lime

This stiry-fry takes no time at all to throw together, and is super flavourful. The almond stir-fry sauce makes it nutty, yet has a zing from the lime and ginger. You can use any vegetables you have on hand (bok choy, broccoli), and serve over rice or noodles!

Ground pork is cooked with soy sauce and a touch of maple syrup for flavour, topped with sautéed peppers, and served over noodles or rice.

You can adjust the spice level of the sauce very easily to adapt for your taste! Give this one a try for an easy weeknight meal.

I like to cook the pork first until browned- give it time. It will often start “steaming” and giving off a lot of liquid, but be patient. Keep cooking over a high heat until the liquid evaporates, and then the pork will start to brown. At this point you add the soy and maple syrup to caramelize a bit and get that flavour in!

Serves: 4-6 Cooking Time: 20 minutes


  • 3 pieces noodles
  • 1 teaspoon neutral flavoured oil
  • 1 lb ground pork
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon neutral flavoured oil
  • 1/2 yellow onion, sliced thinly
  • 3 peppers, sliced
  • 1/2 recipe of almond stir fry sauce



Cook noodles according to package directions. Set aside.


Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a large frypan over medium-high heat. Add the ground pork, and break up larger chunks. Allow the liquid to evaporate, and cook until the pork is browned.


Stir in the soy sauce and maple syrup, coating all of the ground pork. Cook until the liquid is gone. Set aside.


Use the same frying pan, and heat the other teaspoon of oil over medium heat.


Add the onion and cook, stirring until just translucent. Add the peppers, and cook until tender.


Combine the noodles, pork, veggies, and almond sauce in a large bowl and serve with extra lime wedges and chili flakes if desired.
