20-Minute Garlic & Honey Pork Belly Stir Fry

20-Minute Garlic & Honey Pork Belly Stir Fry

Twenty minutes is all you need to make this saucy and sweet pork belly stir fry! Made with simple ingredients, minimal seasonings and very little effort for this flavor packed dish that you won’t be able to stop eating. The trick is to thinly slice our skinless pork belly so it cooks fast and gets that golden brown sear. The sauce with rice wine vinegar, soy sauce, honey and garlic is what puts this dish over the top. The sweetness pairs perfectly with the fat from the pork belly but then the greens bring some fresh crunch. Make this dish for lunch or dinner or maybe both! Enjoy this dish by itself with more crunchy greens or add some rice noodles for a hearty meal.

20-Minute Garlic & Honey Pork Belly Stir Fry

Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes
Total time: 20 minutes
Makes: 2-3 servings

Please note: This recipe works great with skinless pork belly; however, if using skin on pork belly make sure to remove skin. The skin will not have time to fully cook and will be chewy. 

 
Ingredients
1 lb pork belly (skinless), sliced thin with excess fat trimmed (¼ inch thick x 2 inch stripes) If using skin on pork belly make sure to remove the skin!
1 tsp avocado oil
1 medium yellow onion, sliced
2 tbsp rice wine vinegar
2 tbsp soy sauce or coconut aminos
2 tsp sage honey
2-4 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp kosher salt
2 green onions, cut into 2-inch pieces
½ cup snow peas or snap peas, cut in half

Instructions

  1. Prepare pork belly: Open and remove meat from the packaging. Place on a cutting board, pat dry with paper towels. If there’s a large fat cap, trim off excess fat (if you like). Cut into ¼ inch thick x 2 inch pieces. Let sit at room temperature until all ingredients have been prepped. Set aside.
  2. Make the sauce: In a small bowl, mix rice wine vinegar, soy sauce, sage honey, garlic and salt. Set aside.
  3. Sauté the veggies: Heat avocado oil over medium-high heat in a large cast iron skillet. Once the oil is hot, add the sliced onions. Sauté for about 3 to 4 minutes or until translucent.
  4. Add pork belly: Push the onions off to the side and add the thinly sliced pork belly in a single layer in the center of the skillet. Cook for about 5 to 8 minutes or until golden brown. Mix often. If there's to much fat for your liking, tilt pan and use a spoon to remove fat. However, make sure to save that fat for roasting veggies or frying eggs!
  5. Get saucy: Drizzle the sauce over the pork belly and onions. Turn the heat to high, and sauté for about 3 to 4 minutes or until the sauce has thickened.
  6. Time for greens: Add in the green onions and snow peas. Sauté on high heat for another 1 to 2 minutes, mixing well.
  7. Let’s eat: Remove from the heat and enjoy this dish by itself with more crunchy greens or add some rice noodles for a hearty meal.
  8. Leftovers: Best eaten warm the same day; however, you can store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2-3 days. If you have any! Reheat quickly on the stove.
