This made Enough for all four of us for dinner and for 2 servings of leftovers for mike and I for lunch the next day. Which makes it $.94 per serving.
We bought the Hoison sauce at Super Walmart. But it may be cheaper to make your own if you have the ingredients in your kitchen . There is a really easy recipe Here.
We bought the pork roast on sale for 50% off at Stop and shop for a total of $4.44 for a two pound pack of pork loin. The pack contained two 1 lb. loins. This made each loin only $2.22.
We buy a 50 lb. bag of rice from the Asian market making each cup of uncooked rice only $.25. We store it in a sealed tupperware tub in the basemen pantry and it last forever. If the apocalypse happens we will have enough rice for awhile..lol.
Cut the pork loin into 1 inch slices and marinate in a zip lock bag with about 1/4 the jar of Hoison sauce for at least 4 hours, all day while you go to work , or overnight is great too.
Directions for Making Cheap and Easy Stir Fry Pork
In a large wok. Saute pork slices until cooked all the way through and inside is no longer pink. Remove from wok.
Add into hot walk, chopped onion (How to Dice An onion,)chopped pepper, and chopped garlic. Saute until onions are translucent. Add in frozen snap peas and the other 1/4 of the Hoison sauce. Heat until frozen vegetables are hot. You can add the pork back into the wok and toss for a few minutes to warm it back up.
Cook rice however you normally cook your rice. We use our pressure cooker because it is quicker. We added a little parsley to the rice and some seasame seeds just because we had some in our pantry. They make nice garnish for the pictures. But not nessissary for the recipe.
Plate and Enjoy!
We stored the leftover servings in a sealed container in the refrigerate and microwaved it the next day at work for lunch for Mike and myself.
Total Cost $6.06 for 4 servings or $1.51 per serving.
The Turkey sausages were originally priced at $5.49 per pack of four links. But Big Y had them on sale for buy 1, get 1 free. Making the cost per pack only $2.75 per pack of six links.
The Hoagie Rolls are Big Y brand and again were on sale for buy 1, get 1 free. Original price was $3.99 per pack of 6. The sale brought the price per pack of 6 down to $1.99 and the price per roll to $.33 per roll.
The bell Peppers were at Super walmart for $.53 cents each and the Pasta sauce also at walmart for only $.88 per jar.
The onions we had bought a big bag of at Aldi and the price per onion was calculated out to be $.16 per onion
Now we calculated out these portions based on the assumption that all four members of your household will eat all the ingredients. But being a mother I totally understand that this is not the reality of family dinner. One kid may only eat the sausage and bun without the peppers and onions, one kid may only eat the cheese and bun, one kid might just eat the veggies and then there is that one kid, like mine that will only eat the bun! Ohhhhh! Such is life at the family table. So if that sounds lie your family , the good news is the meal may end up even cheaper. BONUS!!! HA HA!
To make these Cheap and delicious Sausage and pepper Grinders:
Brown Sausages in fry pan or dutch oven until cooked through and brown on the outside.
Remove sausages from the pan. Slice the peppers and onions into thin strips and cook in the sausage juices until soft. Add in the pasta sauce and stir until heated through. place the rolls on a cookie sheet and fill with 1 sausage link , cover link with the pepper and onion mixture and sprinkle cheese on top.
Bake at 350 in the oven until cheeses is melted.
