Today I want to share a delicious and super easy bacon with snow peas stir fry recipe with you. I used only four simple ingredients: bacon, snow peas, mushroom and garlic to make this dish.
To start, I cooked the bacon over medium-low heat for about 10 minutes until the fat is released and the bacon is crisp and browned. I then put the bacon slices on paper towel to soak up excessive oil and chopped them into small pieces to set aside.
Next, I boiled the snow peas with hot water for just one or two minutes, drain and let sit. Sautéd the garlic (half, one tablespoon worth) until they are crisp and set aside for garnish use at the end.
Once the bacon and snow peas are cooked, making the actual stir fry only takes a few minutes! First, I stirred in the other half minced garlic, once they are fragrant, I added the mushrooms into the pan. When the mushrooms appear to have turned soft, I stirred in the snow peas and seasoned the dish with salt, soy sauce and black pepper.
Crispy bacon and garlic were added at the end, after stir frying for another minute, I removed the dish from heat and served with rice. I love the flavor and texture of this dish, it is one of my favorite ways to enjoy snow peas.
Here is an overview of how I made this bacon with snow peas in less than 30 minutes, see recipe below.

Love this! Left the peas ‘al dente’ ‘ since I love the flavor, and for some reason added some chopped onion (wasn’t needed, just habit). Love the fresh taste of sweet pea pods, salt of soy, and zing of garlic. More please!
