Another busy weekend with a lot to do and I still had to make my lunches for the week! Luckily, with this recipe from Nom Nom Paleo, it was quick and easy fixings!
Full Disclaimer: I really did intend to follow this recipe by the letter. However, I had forgotten to get shallots and I’m a wuss when it comes to spicy foods, so I had to make a couple of substitutions.
First, I had gathered all my ingredients. Here is the list with my substitutions (in bold):
1 pound asparagus
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 sweet onion, finely chopped
Sea salt or kosher salt
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 pound ground pork
2 or 3 mini sweet peppers
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
2 teaspoons fish sauce
1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
2 scallions, trimmed and thinly sliced I forgot to get this too!
Then, I heated up a pan and added the coconut oil. When its warm enough, add the chopped onion and salt; stir until the onion becomes opaque, then add the garlic. After about a minute add the ground pork. Cook until it is no longer pink.
Add the asparagus and the sweet peppers.
Then stir in the soy sauce, rice vinegar, fish sauce and sesame oil. Cook for another few minutes. Turn off the heat and adjust the seasoning, if needed. Pro Tip: This can also be paired with cauliflower rice for more veggie goodness!
There you have it! Did you make this as well? How did it turn out? Leave your comments below!
Have a great week!
