I’m obsessed with the recipes on How Sweet It Is

So when I saw how in love Jessica was with this Vietnamese Caramel Pork Stir Fry dish I knew I had to try making it! I love LOVE love stir frys!!! I remember from a young age my mom in the kitchen with her huge red Wok, slicing and dicing while my brother and I threw in all the vegetables. I think they are honestly the perfect meal; satisfying because you get you meat and veggies covered in delicious sauce and filling because you get that carb fix (which every Italian girl needs!!!).

Also Caramel Pork sounds ridiculously good. I tend to get stuck in a bit of chicken-or-beef-rotating-rut so this was going to be a nice change on the protein side. Also, confession. I’ve never made my owe sauce! I always use the packages or something bottled. And lets be honest, we don’t all have time to make every dinner from scratch and those little short-cuts are a major help in our busy lives (is that enough justification??).

How did it go?

I do have to state that this dish took much longer than 30 minutes for me to make! Maybe on the 3rd or 5th try I’ll get it down to that, but I’d say I spent about an hour in the kitchen reading carefully, chopping, mixing, cooking etc. It wasn’t that expensive to get all of the ingredients either.

So then, how was it?

UNBELIEVABLE!!!!!! This dish delivered. And like Jessica, between me and my partner we ate everything! Not. A. Crumb. Left.

So if you, your partner, or your family are stir fry lovers you have to try this dish! It will become a regular, that I am sure.
