Common ingredients and a little bit cooking effort could produce great flavors. The Pork with Green Pepper recipe I am about to write about today is a great example of that!
I am also a big fan of dishes like pulled pork. They tastes amazing, however, it is a little bit time consuming to prepare. So when I need to make a quick but tasty meal after work with pork as the main ingredient, this is my go-to dish.
The key for getting a good flavor into the pork is marinating it before cooking. I used salt and black pepper for seasoning, and the usage of oil and starch helps to keep the meat tender and juicy after quick stir-frying.
I like to enjoy this dish with a bowl of rice so the rice will soak up all the flavors. I also think the crunchiness of the green pepper, tenderness of the meat and softness of the rice all complement each other very well. That’s a nice reward for a short 20 minutes of cooking effort.
Below is a overview of how to make this dish. The total time needed is about 20 minutes.I hope you enjoy making this tasty pork with green pepper at home. If you like this recipe, please leave a rating and share it with your friends!
