Pork and Green Bean Stir Fry with Sweet Potato Fried Rice

As I write this, my sister and her fiancé have just arrived to Florida for their wedding week!

I can’t believe my little sister is getting married (I’m sure all older sisters say that!) and I’m so excited for the big day and all the festivities leading up to it.

And if you follow me on Instagram, you know I was stressing out about writing my Maid of Honor speech. I was stressing because I wanted it to be perfect, and I always put a lot of pressure on myself in these types of situations.

Luckily, I don’t have a fear of public speaking or get nervous in front of crowds, so I’m actually pumped for the speech. I think it’s the perfect balance of heartfelt and funny.

Pork and Green Bean Stir Fry with Sweet Potato Fried Rice

The only thing I am nervous about is crying. I’m a pretty ugly crier, and I never ever cry (like, I cry once a year) and once I start, I just SOB and let it all out. So, pray for me!

It’s so tough to sum up 28 years of sisterhood together in a speech! A few people online asked me for my tips on writing a MOH speech. I basically made an outline of the following:

  • Things I love about Felicia
  • Things I want to poke fun with Felicia about
  • Notable/funny memories
  • My thoughts on Ben and their relationship

From there, I tried to pull out themes. I basically started writing mini paragraphs and then eliminated the ones that weren’t relevant or didn’t flow well.

Pork and Green Bean Stir Fry with Sweet Potato Fried Rice

I read the speech to my mom and she cried, so I’m hoping that’s a good sign!

Anyway, as for this recipe, my parents literally licked their bowls clean – and my mother isn’t a big fan of pork. The pork tenderloin and green beans soak up the soy sauce mixture and are so tasty. The fluffy sweet potato fried rice adds the perfect balance of sweetness to the dish!

Pork and Green Bean Stir Fry with Sweet Potato Fried Rice

The sweet potato fried rice can be prepared a day ahead, and then the pork and green beans can just be tossed together quickly at night for a simple, weeknight meal!

Alright, time to get spend time with my family and future brother-in-law! Happy Sunday!

Nutritional Information & Recipe

Pork and Green Bean Stir Fry with Sweet Potato Fried Rice

Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time20 mins
Total Time35 mins

Ingredients

  • For the sweet potato rice:
  • 2 large sweet potatoes peeled, Blade D
  • 1/2 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 small white onion diced
  • pepper
  • 4 eggs beaten
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • For the pork and beans:
  • ¾ - 1 pound pork tenderloin
  • salt
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon honey or 1 teaspoon coconut sugar
  • 2 teaspoons coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced peeled fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 pound green beans trimmed and cut crosswise into 2” pieces

Instructions

  • Prepare the rice. Place the sweet potato noodles into a food processor and pulse until rice-like and set aside. Heat the coconut oil up in a large skillet. Once shimmering, add the onions and cook until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the sweet potato rice, season with pepper, and stir until sweet potato is no longer crunchy, about 5 minutes. Push the rice to the sides to create a cavity in the center to drop the eggs in. Stir the eggs and let cook until scrambled and then combine with the rice. Drizzle with the soy sauce, stir well to combine, and set the rice aside and cover to keep warm.
  • Prep your pork. Cut the pork diagonally into 1/4-inch thick slices and then cut each slice lengthwise in half. Season with salt. In a small bowl, mix together the soy sauce, vinegar, and honey and set the sauce aside.
  • Heat 1 teaspoon of the coconut oil in a large skillet over medium-high. Once oil is shimmering, add the ginger, garlic, pepper flakes, and pork. Cook, stirring, until pork is no longer pink, 5-7 minutes.
  • While pork cooks, cook the green beans in a medium pot of boiling salted water until crisp-tender, about 4 minutes. Drain and pat dry with paper towels.
  • Once pork is done cooking, add the green beans to the skillet with the pork and reserved sauce and cook over high heat, stirring often, until beans absorb the sauce, about 2 minutes.
  • Divide the sweet potato rice into bowls and top with the pork and green beans. Serve immediately.

Loved this recipe! I made it with cauliflower rice instead and marinated the pork in the sauce with the red pep and garlic overnight. So easy and very filling!

Yumm! I just made this but used chicken thighs instead of pork. SO good! I think next time I'll add mushrooms too. Clearly I have an inferior spiralizer so I will be ordering the Inspiralizer very soon!

Did you mean D for the sweet potatoe ? That seemed like the big slices ?
Meaghan says:
Yes! Use Blade D to prepare your noodles!
Anonymous says:
My blade d is not the thin noodle blade. When I use blade d it makes the mandolin style slices potatos.
Meaghan says:
I am so sorry to hear that! Please email me - meaghan@inspiralized.com - I can help you troubleshoot!
Cat G. says:
Yes!!!!! This is one of my absolute favourite recipes of yours. I just made the sweet potato rice for dinner tonight and my pork is thawing. Can't wait for dinner
Carly Glazer says:
Hi Cat! So happy to hear!
Cat G says:
I have made this so many times since you posted it and I love so much every time I make it. I don't have any sweet potatoes today, so we're just having it with white rice, but that pork tenderloin with green beans it just sooooo good!

super easy lunch idea, made (almost) entirely from the freezer and 100% from @wholefoodsmarket, so next time you go there to shop, grab the following items and make this Teriyaki Tofu and Pepper Riced Cauliflower Stir Fry👇🏼👇🏼

~ frozen riced cauliflower, stir fry style⁣
~ frozen three pepper blend (sliced bell peppers)⁣
~ organic teriyaki sauce⁣
~ @wildwoodfoods teriyaki baked tofu⁣
~ for garnish: white sesame seeds, red pepper flakes⁣

heat a tablespoon of neutral oil in a medium skillet. add the bag of riced cauliflower and sauté until softened to your preference (about 5 minutes for rice-like, IMHO.) set the cauliflower aside in a bowl. add a couple handfuls of bell pepper strips and half the package of tofu, cubed. pour over some teriyaki sauce (I use about 1/3 cup), stir, and let cook until peppers are totally soft, another 3 to 5 minutes. top the riced cauliflower with the teriyaki tofu and peppers. garnish with sesame seeds and red pepper flakes. enjoy!⁣ 🥡

probably my favorite part of parenthood is seeing life through my children’s’ eyes. everything is new and they live a life of exciting discovery. and nothing beats the merriment of Christmastime! 🎄🎅🏻 luca and roma had a blast ice skating today in NYC - luca got the hang of it quickly and he loved pushing roma on the little plastic bear seats they had at @rinkatbrookfieldplacenyc. ⛸❄️ the twins were angels and slept the whole time, so I could be present with my older kids. 👼🏻👼🏻

and we’re building a holiday bucket list calendar, what should we add to it (aside from meeting santa? 😉)

cauliflower and carrot masala, totally normal meal on thanksgiving eve, right? 😅🥄

tomorrow we’re going to my BIL’s to hang out with Lu’s side of the family, and I’m excited to see everyone (it’s been YEARS!) and have the kids spend time with their cousins, aunts and uncles 🙏🏼

for the curry, simmer cauliflower, carrots, a jar of @mayakaimalfoods, and 2 cups of @bonafideprovisions veggie broth in a large pot for 20 minutes or until thickened to your preference. add cooked lentils, stir, and serve with jasmine rice, chutney and toasted naan. easy 30 minute meal 👏🏼 not exactly thanksgiving-friendly, but worth a share!

safe travels today and tomorrow and wishing everyone a safe and happy thanksgiving 🦃 I’m so grateful for you
