Thai Style Pork Stirfy With Cauli-Rice




Motherhood has rendered my brain cells stupid. As a blogger presenting a new recipe it is the norm to have a pithy story to warm up the reader into the post. Something that draws them and want to keep reading. I write my blog posts at night now and it probably isn't the best time of day to try and form a coherent sentence. I don't have anything super interesting and pithy to share with you. Oh I can tell you that my  2.5 year old toddler and I played horsey in the yard today. I was the horse and he was the rider. I don't think my back will ever be the same. I cut his sandwiches into star shapes to try and get him to eat his lunch. It worked for today at least. I had gooing and gahing conversations with our now 3 1/2 month old Little Miss. It made my heart melt just a little more. Oh and she is now rolling over. A tiny tear was shed. My baby is growing up to fast. I sat outside on the grass in the late afternoon with Little Miss ensconced in a blanket while hubby and J.D played in the sand pit together. It was nice to breath the late afternoon air and scrunch my toes up in the grass. I then made this Thai Style Pork Stirfry with Cauli-Rice for dinner. It was a fitting meal to end the day on.





I am always on the lookout to create different dishes using mince. I have my staple mince dishes such as spaghetti, lasagna, rissoles etc but on the days I don't feel like the same old same old I like to have something tasty up my sleeve to make. This dish delivers on the tasty promise and it makes great use of a pack of mince plus it's pretty budget friendly. Make sure you stick this dish in your monthly meal planner and it's a great way to sneak some veggies into the kids. The cauli-rice was a pleasant surprise with this stir-fry dish. I hadn't tried this yet and it was on my to do list to make. I'd made a cauliflower based pizza before but hadn't got round to making cauli-rice. It was a nice change to the usual rice accompaniment and the little guy didn't mind it either. I found it so easy to make and honestly it doesn't have a overpowering cauliflower flavour like you might think it would. I will be making it again that's for sure.

    1. In a large wok over a high heat drizzle in a little olive oil. Once the pan is hot pour in the beaten eggs and swirl around.

    3. Drizzle in a little more olive oil and add the onion, celery, carrots, broccoli and capsicum. Stir fry until the onion is glassy and the broccoli and carrot are tender. If need be add a couple of tablespoons of water and "steam" the vegetables to cook a little more quickly.
    4. Remove the vegetables from the pan and set aside.
    5. Drizzle a little more olive oil into the pan and add in the pork mince. Cook the mince, breaking up the large chunks of mince with a wooden spoon.
    6. Once the pork mince has browned off add in the vegetables and toss together.
    7. Pour over the sauce mixture and toss to coat the mince and vegetables and to warm through.
    8. Serve on top of the cauli-rice and top with the egg slices.
    9. Garnish with finely sliced spring onions and chilli.
    Sauce

    Cauli-Rice

    1. Cut the whole head of cauliflower into small florets.
    2. Place the florets into a food processor (You may need to do this in batches) and pulse the cauliflower until it forms a chunky crumb similar to the size of rice.
    3. Repeat for the remaining cauliflower if necessary.
    4. Place the processed cauli-rice into a microwavable bowl and add in a couple of tablespoons of water.
    5. Place in the microwave and cook for 4 minutes on high. Check after that time and the "rice" should be tender.
    6. Serve immediately with the pork stir fry.
