Anything But Christmas Leftovers Porky Pear Stir Fry

Porky Ingredients:

  • ¼ cup tamari or soy sauce

  • 1 limes zest

  • 1 lime juiced

  • 2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar

  • ¼ cup water

  • ¼ tsp chilli flakes

  • 2 Tbsp sesame oil

  • 1 pear, chopped

  • 2 tsp arrowroot powder or non-GMO cornstarch

  • 230g (½ lb) Pork tenderloin from a well fed and happy pig, cut into strips

The Fry Ingredients:

  • 2 ½ -3 cups cooked rice

  • Avocado or coconut oil

  • 1 small onion, sliced into strips

  • 2 cloves garlic, sliced thinly

  • ½ thumb ginger, grated

  • 1 cup yams, cut into cubes

  • 1 bunch broccolette, cut into bite sized chunks (stems included)

  • 1 bunch swiss chard, chopped

  • Juice of 1 orange

  • Sea salt & freshly ground black pepper

  • Optional garnishes- cilantro, bean sprouts, sesame seeds, pee shoots, etc.


  1. The Marination: Whisk together all the marinade ingredients besides the pork. Then add them to a small bowl with the pork. Let sit for at least 20 minutes

  2. The Fry: Now is a good time to start the rice. Then heat up a wok or large frying pan on medium. Add a glug of oil (or dollop if you are using coconut oil) to the pan. Add the onion, garlic, and ginger. Saute until the onion is translucent (about 5 minutes).

  3. Now add the yams and cook until soft. Add a splash of water here and there if things are starting to stick. When the yams are fairly tender add the broccolette and the stems of the chard, putting the leaves aside. Saute until the broccoli stems and yams are tender then turn the heat down to low.

  4. The Pork: Heat a separate pan on medium for the pork. Take the pork out of the marinade and add it to the pan. Cook for 3-4 minutes or until there is a small amount of pink in the center. Then  add the leftover marinade, flip the pork and cook for another 1-2 minutes or until fully cooked (internal temp 165℉) and the pear is mushy. 

  5. Add the Pork, chard greens, and orange juice to the other veggies. Toss together and then give it a taste test. Add some salt (or more tamari) and ground pepper to taste.

  6. The Enjoying: Dish up with some rice and garnish to your pleasure. Enjoy on any day that ends in Y.
