My husband is a HUGE Chinese takeout fan. Anytime I’m all “I don’t want to cook. What should we get?” He replies “Chinese?!” Ugh. Here is the thing – not always a fan. I find the sauces thick and too sweet and the meat is questionable. That’s why I’m all about making it myself. I get to use up fresh vegetables and pack it full with however much fresh meat I want. PLUS I can turn up (or down) my desired heat level. Although, I’m pretty much in camp “PLEASE GIVE ME ALL THE SPICE!” I blame my father for this spicy love. However, I still can’t handle my dad’s hot sauce. It’s beyond hot. It’s like fire.

Soooooo when I was challenged to make a date night at home dish for Anolon I was all “I got this!” and went full on Chinese food at home.

For this spicy garlic pork stir fry I used red bell pepper, mushrooms and green beans but feel free to use any vegetable you have on hand! The best part about a stir fry is that you can literally put whatever vegetables you have into your dish! I like to think of them as a “clean out the fridge” type of meal. To serve you can throw it over rice OR just eat it straight from the pan. My husband prefers the straight from the pan type of approach. Oh and this pan isn’t just any old pan. It’s the most beautiful stir fry pan EVER! I got to test out the Anolon Nouvelle Copper Stainless Steel 12.5-inch covered stir fry pan! It’s crazy beautiful (seriously, can we talk about how awesome shiny pans are?) and is perfect for all my home stir fry needs. It has nice high sides so you can really pack the stir fry with ALL THE THINGS!

So don’t be shy. Bust your Anolon pan and get to stir frying!
