I promised you some very un-Thanksgiving food this week, and here it is!  I was chosen for the World Foods Fusion Taste Team, which means that I received a lovely variety of Asian stir fry sauces from World Foods to try out and come up with some new recipes.  I made this amazing pork fried rice with their Thai Coconut Galangal Stir Fry Sauce.

Coconut Galangal Pork Fried Rice

3 tbsp canola oil
½ large onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 ½ cups shelled edamame, thawed if frozen
4 oz. cremini mushrooms, chopped
1 cup cabbage, shredded
1 cup carrots, thinly sliced on the bias
1 lb. boneless pork loin, cut into ½” cubes
3 cups cooked rice
Sprinkle of soy sauce
Green onions

Heat oil in a large skillet or wok over high heat.  Add the onion, garlic, edamame, mushrooms, cabbage, and carrots.  Cook until vegetables are just slightly softened.  Add the pork and stir until pork is browned and no longer pink inside, about 5 minutes.

Stir in the rice and half the jar of stir fry sauce.  Cook and stir for about 5 minutes.  Add the remaining stir fry sauce and cook until veggies are softened to your liking.  Sprinkle with soy sauce.  Garnish with fresh green onions and cilantro, if desired.

Makes 4 servings.

This is the second fried rice recipe I have made now, the first is a meatless one, my Thai Fried Rice.  I love packing as many veggies as I can into my fried rice.  I tried to choose different veggies for this dish.  The edamame is a great choice.  And I love the crunchiness from the cabbage and the meaty mushrooms.  

Doesn't it make a beautiful dish?  I love the flavor of this stir fry sauce.  It's not spicy or overpowering in any way.  It just perfectly melds all the dish's components together.  And it's so much easier than pulling five different bottles out of the fridge to create your own sauce.

This is kind of a competition to see which team (we are in state teams) can get the most comments, likes on Facebook, and repins on Pinterest.  So it would be great if you could take just a few seconds to pin this recipe and like it on Facebook!

Disclosure: I received a free sample of the stir fry sauce from World Foods as part of the Fusion Taste Team. All opinions are 100% my own.
