Parents Pork and Spinach Meet Up with Sweet Potato Fries
This is a very easy recipe and only contains 7 ingredients. The prep and cooking time is under 20 minutes, including the time for the rice to cook. I followed the original recipe as stated, not the two suggested modifications. The recipe states to use low-sodium soy sauce, however, I used the soy-sauce I already had in my fridge, which was not low-sodium. Finally, I used peanut oil because it was the easiest to find at my local grocery store. As a side to the stir-fry recipe I made oven baked sweet potato fries. My two boys actually like these more than regular french fries. All that I do to prepare them is to cut two sweet potatoes into wedges, toss with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and put into the oven at 375 degrees.
This recipe went over well with my whole family. The pork was very tender and moist. I liked that the regular soy sauce added a little more saltiness to the flavor, which I prefer. Of course, the biggest hit with my two boys were the sweet potato fries, as expected. A great, quick stir-fry recipe that is very kid friendly.
This recipe is not currently available on-line, but can be found in the June 2011 issue of Parents magazine.
