One Pot Thai Pork Stir-Fry Ingredients
- olive oil
- green bell pepper
- red bell pepper
- button mushrooms
- kosher salt and pepper
- ground pork
- jasmine rice
- vegetable stock
- low-sodium soy sauce
- hot sauce
- lime juice
First, you’ll sauté your veggies in a smidge of oil oil, kosher salt and pepper until they’re just a bit softened. You’ll remove them to a bowl and then add your ground pork and cook until it’s no longer pink.
At this point, you’ll need to drain the fat from the pan and then add back in the veggies, rice, broth, soy sauce and hot sauce. The mixture will need to come to a boil before you turn it down to a simmer and cook, covered for about 15-18 minutes or until the rice is tender.
You’ll remove it from the heat and let it rest before finally adding some chopped scallions, shredded carrots, parsley and lime juice.
No need for any sides with this dish because all the veggies have already been added. It’s a one pot wonder that needs to be on your menu this back to school season!

A Few Cook’s Notes for One Pot Thai Pork Stir-Fry
I used red and green bell peppers for this dish, but feel free to use any color you have in your garden or in the fridge.
My rice took about 15 minutes to cook until the broth was all absorbed and the rice was tender. Keep and eye on yours so it doesn’t overcook.
