Caramelised Pork Stiry Fry

Recipe: Caramelised Pork Stir Fry

This is a great way to do something different with mince meat.  Works best with pork or turkey mince.


  • 500g pasture fed pork mince or organic turkey mince
  • 1 1/2 tbsp peanut oil
  • 1 onion, finely diced
  • 2 tsp grated fresh ginger
  • 1 tsp grated fresh turmeric
  • 2 large cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 stalk lemongrass, finely chopped
  • 1 small thai chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 5 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 carrot, grated
  • 1 big handful of spinach
  • 1 shallot, finely sliced
  • 1/2 cup raw cashews


  • Heat the oil in a large wok over high heat.
  • Add, onion, ginger, turmeric, garlic, lemongrass and chilli and cook for 2-3 minutes.
  • Add the pork mince and cook for approximately 3 mins until pork is white all over.  Use a wooden spoon to break up the chunks of meat.
  • Add the sugar and fish sauce.  Stir once and then leave to cook until all the juices cook out and pork starts to caramelise – about 2-3 mins.  Stir again and then leave for 1 min to get more caramelisation.  Repeat once or twice more until caramelised to your liking.
  • Add in carrot and spinach and stir until spinach is wilted.
  • Serve over vermicelli noodles or in bowl with quinoa, cucumber and lettuce.  Sprinkle top with shallots and cashews.
