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

  • 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.
  • 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.

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.

    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.
