Stir frying can be a great way to eat some extra vegetables in an affordable and delicious way. This recipe includes healthy runner beans, delicious mushrooms, hearty pork fillet and spring onions in a fantastic sweet chilli stir fry!
And because Monday is for affordable recipes: I made sure today’s stir fry will only cost you €2 per portion.
Driving me crazy
I’ve been cooking sooo much this week (when I’m typing this, it’s Sunday the 10th of April), I wish I had more time! but unfortunately I’ll have to go back to school the upcoming week. It sort of feels like my life is over, uhoh! Nah, it’s not that dramatic. But I’ll definitely miss being able to give in to my cravings of baking cookies/healthy pies/soy bean snacks or whatever else I wanted, whenever I wanted…. That’s one thing I’m sure of.
But hey, it’s good to get back to normal! I haven’t been lazy at all this past year even though I was supposed to take my time and focus on my anxiety. I actually did quite a lot, learned a lot, wrote a lot and worked a lot in the first 8 months of my gap year. But it feels like I have to get back to studying, as that’s what I’m supposed to do.
Does that make sense?
To be reaaaaal honest with you guys: sometimes I’d rather quit my education altogether. Sometimes I get carried away, dream about becoming a full time waitress and blog writer and I feel like it could actually be possible. Crazy, right?! But school has brought me in such a bad way, I developed an anxiety disorder I mean come on 😛 Waitressing is what I’ve always loved, even though people always think it’s a horrible job.
And I’m crazy about this blog. I only started 3 months ago and am not successful at all, but sometimes I wonder. Hey, a girl can dream!
Mmmmkay, I’ll leave my mumbling for later and focus on the recipe for now 😉
- Runner beans, 500g
- Mushrooms, 250g
- Spring onions, 2 pieces
- Pork fillets, 200g
- Sweet chilli sauce
- Salt and pepper
- Start by cutting the beans into pieces of around 5 cm. Cook them in a pan with hot water for 5 minutes.
- Meanwhile, chop up the spring onions and mushrooms and toss these in a frying pan with some oil. Cook on medium heat.
- Add the cooked beans.
- Season the pork with salt and pepper and cut into smaller pieces of 4x4 cm. Add to the vegetables in the pan.
- Cook all of this until the pork is done, which will take you around 4 minutes. Add the sweet chilli sauce (I used about 6 spoonfuls) and serve!
- This would also be delicious with some brown rice.
