Days 10 & 11 and #Whole30 Pork Stir Fry (Low Carb and Paleo)

pork stir fry_8089_blog

One of my favorite things to do when I’m on a Whole30 is to try new things.  I try and pick up a new veggie or some other ingredient that I haven’t tried before.  For months I’ve seen fish sauce online or in the grocery store and looked at it like it was an alien.  What dish would I use fish sauce in?  Well, I decided to throw caution to the wind, after some nudging from Nom Nom Paleo’s blog, and give fish sauce a try. Now most of the fish sauce brands have sugar in them….bummer…definitely not Whole30 approved.  One day I found it…the infamous, Red Boat Fish Sauce.  There it was in all of its sugar free and Whole30 approved glory.  Once I got it home I was still skeptical to try it so I thought I’d play it safe and add it to a stir fry. Just so you know, the stuff smells bad, but get over that part and toss it into the stir fry.  It is so delicious! It is the perfect pairing with the slight sweetness of the coconut aminos.

Have you tried (or will you try) fish sauce? I’d love to hear about it in the comments below. :)

Season the pork with salt and pepper and add the pork to the skillet.  Sear for 2 minutes and flip the pieces over and sear for another 2 minutes.   Add the broccoli and mix everything together.  Add the coconut aminos and fish sauce and cook until the pork is cooked through.
