Step 1: Saucy Citrus Mix
In a small bowl, mix together minced garlic, grated ginger, orange zest, honey, red pepper flakes, and 3 tablespoons of soy sauce. Set this flavorful sauce aside for later.
Step 2: Green Bean Prep
Boil or steam the green beans for just 2-3 minutes, making sure they retain their crispness. Then, cut them into 1-inch pieces. They'll add a delightful crunch to your stir-fry.
Step 3: Pork Perfection
Combine the sliced pork with 2 tablespoons of soy sauce and give it a good toss. Now, it's time to stir-fry! Cook the pork in batches, setting each batch aside once it's cooked to perfection.
Step 4: Pepper Power
Stir-fry the colorful bell peppers for about 2 minutes. Then, introduce the green beans and the cooked pork back into the mix. Lower the heat to medium-low and add that zesty ginger-orange sauce you prepared earlier. Stir everything together for about 1-2 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld and mingle.
Step 5: Serve with Citrus Zing
This delectable stir-fry is best enjoyed over steamed brown rice. Top each serving with those juicy orange pieces and a generous tablespoon of lightly salted peanuts for that extra crunch and flavor.
Brown rice can be a bit of a slow cooker, taking almost 40 minutes to reach perfection. So, get your rice started and then tackle the rest of the recipe. Your patience will be rewarded with a citrus-infused stir-fry sensation that's worth the wait.
