Pork and Broccoli Stir Fry
I’ve decided to low carb with my husband, so I need quick and easy meals since we’re both super busy. He still works night shift, and being a mom, I’m awake and working during the days. We only have about an hour together before he heads out for work in the evenings, so I look for low carb meals that are fast and tasty. This dish came together surprisingly well and uses simple ingredients that you probably already have in your kitchen.
The dish is based on an old Recipe.com recipe for the same thing, except minus the water chestnuts and rice. We didn’t do water chestnuts because my husband doesn’t like them, and of course, we skipped the rice to make it low carb. You’ll never miss the rice… I promise!
