Pork & Mango Stir-Fry

Here’s a good recipe for when you only have a few minutes to make dinner and one hand because the other hand is grabbing snacks for your toddler, holding a baby and trying to drink your tea from breakfast. It’s super fast and loaded with all the good stuff.

It has the flavor profile of a good sweet meat from your favorite Chinese restaurant, but without the added MSG. The cabbage in here ends up tasting buttery so it’s the kind of greens your kid will eat. And the mango and mint make it seem like summer will never end.

If you couldn’t tell, I really like this dish!
