Shredded Pork and Garlic Sprouts Stir Fry

Garlic Sprouts is one of the vegetables that I like, it’s sweet, crunchy and a good source of fibre but it’s not available whole year round but it has an excellent shelf life. Last weekend it started showing up on Asian groceries so I got hold of one bunch and decided to make something Asian and it’s called Shredded Pork and Garlic Sprouts Stir Fry. A very simple dish which goes well paired with freshly steamed rice.

  2. I’d like to have some garlic sprouts. Scrumptious stir fry.

    I’ve never had garlic sprouts before. I think I might like them too from the sounds of them.

    We call them garlic scapes in the US. And yes, definitely short harvesting season but when it’s available they’re absolutely delicious and one of my fav items to use. Tasty stir-fry.

  15. Yum I love garlic scapes! Pinning for spring!

  16. You’re right that would be perfect with a bowl of white rice !
