1. To make the garlic butter pork cubes: In a shallow plate, sprinkle pork bites with cajun seasoning and toss to coat well. Heat 2 teaspoons of oil in a skillet or pan over medium-high heat until hot.

2. Sear the pork bites in batches for 2-3 minutes on each side until edges are crispy and browned, adding extra oil as needed. Remove the browned pork bites from the skillet and set aside.

3. Reduce heat to medium. Add butter to the skillet and heat until melted. Sauté the chopped garlic until fragrant (about 30 seconds), while scraping up any browned bits from the pan. Deglaze with lemon juice and vegetable broth.

4. Throw blanched green beans into the pan and toss in the lemon butter sauce to coat well. Cook green beans for 3-4 minutes, turning regularly using tongs.

5. Push cooked green beans on the side and return the pork bites into the pan. Toss pork bites through the garlic butter sauce to evenly coat. Serve the garlic butter pork bites and lemon green beans with lemon slices, sprinkled fresh parsley and red chili pepper flakes if you like. Enjoy! ❤️

Tips for the garlic butter pork bites recipe

  • Use a pork chops cut that’s not too lean, so avoid boneless pork chops and buy bone-in pork chops because they tend to be a little more fatty, making it perfect for searing and flavor.
  • Sear the pork bites letting them undisturbed for a while so they develop these nice golden edges and lock in moisture. If you keep stirring, they won’t brown properly and will render a lot of water.
  • If you need to blanch green beans, cook them in boiling water for 2 or 3 minutes, then drain and soak in ice-cold water to stop the cooking process and keep the nice green color of the vegetable. You can also nuke them in the microwave for 7 minutes, covered, with 1/4 cup water.

How and how long to keep the pork bites leftover?

You can keep the pork bites leftover for 2 days in the refrigerator, in an airtight container. Reheat gently in the microwave or covered in the oven for 5 minutes, adding a few drops of water to loosen the sauce.

    Too spicy for us, substituted low-sodium pork seasoning. Added 1 tsp. cornstarch to the lemon juice/vegetable broth to thicken the yummy sauce.

    This has become a family, favorite! My kids and my husband all of it. It’s super full of flavour and surprisingly moist… Pork has a tendency to get dry easily, but not in this recipe.

    Delicious! I was looking for something different to do with pork chops. Though this is simple, the flavor is bold and I loved the pork chops in little bite size seared chunks. I served it with mashed potatoes. My husband doesn't eat very much and he cleaned his plate. Thanks for the recipe, will make again!

    I made a few substitutions because of what I had on hand, nothing major though. My picky kids even loved it!

    It was good, simple and did not produce a lot of clean up. I served it with rice.

    Very nice taste. I did add rep pepper flakes. The only thing I did differently was to add the pork back in before the green beans. They needed to cook longer than the green beans.

    I didn't get the crunch I was looking for but still delicious! I substituted Cavenders for Cajun seasoning. 😋

    This Garlic Butter Pork Bites with Lemon Green Beans is so delicious. I used Kikkoman Naturally Brewed Tamari Soy Sauce that I bought at Karman Foods as an alternative to Cajun Seasoning Mix since it's not available in my pantry; still perfect though!

    Wish I could leave 5 stars so this stands out better in search! It was quite good and super easy to make. I didn't have prepared Cajun seasoning so I made my own. I probably ended up doubling the seasoning because of that. Will make again.

    Really easy and tastes great. Pork came out tender and green beans are still a little crisp. Perfect

    Very tasty! Needed more salt for me and it took longer than 30 minutes bc I like my green beans cooked a little more.

    Very good!!! My husband and I loved it. I'll for sure be making it again but using less cajun as it was way to spicy for us.
