Pork Stir Fry with Peppers and Mushrooms

This Pork Stir Fry dish is inspired by my favorite meal when I go to my favorite Thai restaurant.  However, when I go out the stir fries to be a little too saucy so this version is a little lighter, but still just as tasty. I used tender boneless pork chops and stir fried them with fresh garlic, onion, green bell pepper, mushrooms, soy sauce, sesame oil, rice vinegar and Thai seasoning. And much like the restaurants I go to, I served it over steamed Jasmine rice.  For those of you that are a little leery of the word “Peppers” in the title, don’t be, the only peppers are green bell peppers so there is not much spice just crunchy, almost sweet peppers.

If you want to add a little kick, a sliced serrano pepper would be a nice addition. And if you have some frozen Crispy Pork Wontons they would be the perfect accompaniment. Enjoy!
