How to make Honey Garlic Pork Stir-Fry recipe

First, season the pork bites with salt and pepper, and coat them in cornstarch. This will ensure a nice even crust and smooth sauce when deglazing with chicken stock. Then brown the pork in the pan until golden brown and cooked through. Finally, add minced garlic, honey, chicken stock, lemon juice, and hot sauce. Simmer for 3-5 minutes until the sauce gets reduced and slightly sticky. Serve the pork immediately. Easy and quick! Check the detailed instructions below on how to make pork stir-fry.

1. To make the honey garlic pork stir-fry: Add the diced pork to a large salad bowl with cornstarch, salt, and pepper. Mix to coat all the pork pieces evenly.

2. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Melt butter into the oil, add the seasoned pork cubes, and cook on all sides until golden brown, for about 6-8 minutes. You may need to work in batches to avoid overcrowding the pan and steaming the pork bites instead of browning them.

3. Once the pork is done cooking, pour over the garlic, honey, chicken stock (or beef stock), lemon juice, and hot sauce (if using) and stir to coat completely; allow the sauce to simmer for a couple of minutes to meld all the flavors and reduce a little until it sticks to the pork bites.

4. Garnish the honey garlic pork bites with fresh chopped parsley and red chili pepper flakes, then serve over your side of choice. Enjoy! ❤️

Tips for the honey garlic pork stir-fry recipe

  • When searing the diced pork, ensure the oil and butter in your pan are hot before adding the meat to get a nice golden sear. Use a large pan to avoid over-crowding and simmering pork in its juice. You want the pork to fry, not steam!
  • For the best flavors, like the pork in this recipe, use freshly minced garlic, not garlic powder.
  • Try this pork bites recipe with pork tenderloin. It’s more expensive but worth a try!
  • If you don’t have boneless pork chops, ground pork will also make a good option to make the stir-fry.
  • This pork stir-fry makes a base of choice to which you can add any veggies you like: bell peppers, onion, mushrooms, broccoli, etc…
