Last weekend, I walked into a supermarket with my sisters to buy a certain item but could not find it. I wasn't prepared to leave empty handed so I dashed to the meat section and I left with a good deal, pork shanks happened to be the item of the day!
As we had veggies at home and some pasta, I decided to make a stir fry with these ingredients.
So the ingredients I used were:
- pork shanks
- green beans
- green bell peppers
- seasoning cubes
- olive oil
The amount of ingredients you use will determine how many people you are cooking for. I cooked for seven.
Season the pork to your taste, boil for 10 to 15 minutes with little water then drain.
Boil the pasta with salt till al dente
Chop up the vegetables
Chop pork into chewable sizes after boiling
|Pasta, carrots, green beans, green bell pepper, onions and garlic and pork shanks|
Put a small amount of olive oil in the pan, pour in the pork in, next the green beans, then the green pepper, then carrots, onions and finally the pasta. Keep stirring while you add each ingredient in. I didn't need to spice as I ended up using the broth from the pork for some moisture. The seasoning in the broth was fine but feel free to add more seasoning if need be.
|All ingredients without turmeric|
|Turmeric made a difference and it's ready|
|Dinner is served|
Will be nice to have feedback if/when you try this dish :-)
Have a lovely weekend.
