Thai Stir-Fried Pork and Asparagus
with fried egg

Active: 30 min Total: 30 min
This simple stir-fry with ground pork and asparagus is inspired by a lunchtime favorite in Thailand. Fresh herbs and aromatics are the primary source of flavor in the dish, so feel free to add more, or toss in any cilantro or green onions you have on hand. It's hard to add too many herbs to this dish.

Make

  1. Heat a wok over medium-high heat. Add first part of oil and then asparagus to heated oil. Saute until asparagus is nearly tender, 3 to 6 minutes (depending on thickness). Set aside and return wok to heat.
  2. Add seasoned pork to wok and cook, stirring frequently, until pork is cooked through, 4 to 6 minutes. Pour off any excess liquid.
  3. While pork is cooking, heat a nonstick pan over medium heat. Add second part of oil and then crack eggs into heated oil. Fry eggs to desired done-ness (cook on one side for sunny-side up or flip and cook on both sides).
  4. When pork is finished, stir in basil and squeeze half the lime wedges over top. Taste and season with some salt.
  5. Serve pork and asparagus with an egg on top. Use lime wedges and some extra aminos and / or hot sauce to season individual plates at the table. Enjoy!
