We are trying to stick to a $500 a month Budget for our family of four. You can read more about our budget plan in my post Feeding a Family of 4 on $500 a Month.
Cheap and Easy Stir Fry Pork
Pork Loin (1 pound) $2.22
2 cup White rice (uncooked measure) ($.50)
1 Bag Frozen Snap Peas ($.99)
1 red Pepper ($.53)
1 /2 onion ($.08)
2 cloves Garlic ($.08)
1 table spoon olive oil ($.10)
1/2 jar Hoi Sauce ($1.15)
Total Cost $ 5.64
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.
