The everyday rice & stew or Jollof struggle is real in Nigeria. So as a self-proclaimed foodie who only cooks when she’s absolutely hungry, I decided to try the stir fry sauce and it was ah-mazing! For the stir fry, I used pork. I know most people don’t like pork and tbh it wasn’t my first choice. Shoprite didn’t have beef and I was tired of anything chicken. Anyhoo, let’s get right into this, shall we?
- Pork stir fry (you can use chicken or beef stir fry)
- Vegetables (carrot, bell peppers, spring onion, green peas, onions etc.)
- Ginger (you can add garlic)
- Seasoned salt (this is now my secret spice for everything.Thank you, Valerie!)
- Soy sauce (I didn’t find soy sauce in Shoprite so I took the Maggi Worcestershire sauce)
- The first thing I do is chop the vegetables, I like to cut the carrots, onions and peppers in long pieces just like the meat. Cut the green beans, ginger, garlic, spring onions and the other orishirishi you wish to add and put them aside just like in the picture above.
- Wash the meat and put in a bowl
- Add the seasoned salt and about 2 spoonfuls of flour and mix with your hands.
- Heat your pan and add a little vegetable oil just enough to grease the pan.
- Then fry your meat, this takes about 5mins just enough time for the meat to brown, it could be a little bit longer with beef and pork as chicken browns faster. When it’s brown enough, take it out and put aside like in the picture above.
- Using the same pan, add your vegetables, you can drizzle some more vegetable oil and stir fry for a few seconds. I like my vegetables slightly crunchy so I try not to stir fry the vegetables for more than a minute, highest two.
- Add the meat back in the pan with the vegetables and add your soy sauce. Don’t forget to add other seasonings like pepper, Maggi, curry etc.
- Stir fry for a few seconds just to get everything around each other.
- Time to enjoy! Serve with rice or pasta.
I hope yours is as tasty as mine. Thank you for stopping by!
