Dominic's $7 Family Meals: Pork Stir Fry And Apple Crumble

1 November 2010, Comments 0

Even though we are in our third month now and winter is approaching it is still nice to have a stir fry at this time of year. I personally prefer Pork or Chicken because you can alter the recipe to suit and make it with all your favourite flavours. Compared to beef which you are often restricted on seasoning.

You can make your pork stir fry into a much lower calorie meal just by replacing any oil with one calorie spray.

For the dessert I have opted for one of my wifes favourite, apple crumble. It is really nice to have at this time of year and if you are feeling really naughty you can have it with cream.

Pork Stir Fry:


600g Pork Strips

1 tbsp Oil
1 tsp Grated Ginger
