Cashew Pork Stir-Fry

Cashew Pork Stir-Fry

Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 6-9 minutes
Serves: 6


2 T. extra virgin olive oil
1½ lbs. pork shoulder, thinly sliced
1 medium red bell pepper, thinly sliced
1 green onion, thinly sliced
1 t. fresh ginger, finely minced
1/3 c. raw cashews
½ t. garlic powder
Sea salt and black pepper, to taste

1 bunch baby Bok choy, leaves separated
3 T. toasted sesame oil
2 T. tamari or coconut aminos*
Optional: 2 T. toasted sesame seeds, for garnish


  1. Heat the olive oil in a wok or a large frying pan with high sides over medium-high heat. Add the pork and cook, stirring occasionally, until the pork is nicely browned on all sides, around 3-4 minutes.

  2. Add bell pepper, green onion, ginger, cashews and garlic powder. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste. Stir fry the veggies until they become crisp-tender, around 2-3 minutes.

  3. Add the bok choy, sesame oil, and tamari. Continue to stir fry until the bok choy wilts and the other ingredients are coated, approximately 1-2 minutes.

  4. Remove from heat and transfer to individual serving plates. Garnish with toasted sesame seeds, if desired, and serve immediately. Enjoy!
