If you have a big skillet and a couple of ingredients, dinner is pretty much done.

I pull out my 12-inch non-stick skillet every single day for one thing or another — quesadillas, an amazing lamb-spelt dish, cheesy gnocchi, weeknight shrimp, even granola!

We’re going Asian tonight, with the help of the new McCormick Sesame Chicken Stir-Fry Sauce. We’re adding some chopped Asian vegetables (either use a bagged version or chop your own as I did here, using snow peas, carrots and Shanghai bok choy).  I changed it from chicken to pork (just because I had ground pork on sale to use up), and in well under half an hour, we’ll have a delicious after-work dinner without having to resort to take-out.Sesame Pork Stir-Fry Bowl | easy skillet supper recipe with vegetables|

Sesame Pork Stir-Fry Bowl | easy skillet supper recipe with vegetables|ShockinglyDelicious.comIf you don’t have leftover rice (you should ALWAYS have leftover rice around!), put the rice on to cook the second you walk in the door, and you’ll be all set. If you’re lower-carbing it, serve this in lettuce cups.

The key to skillet dinners is big flavors. These packaged sauces allow you to pick your favorite protein, add some appropriate vegetables, and toss in the flavorful sauce for the final touch. This same Chicken Stir-Fry Sauce is versatile for so many things besides chicken (or pork, as I show today). It works like a charm for a Beef & Broccoli Stir-Fry, or I can envision it with some tofu steaks and bok choy.

Sesame Pork Stir-Fry Bowl

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

Yield: 4 servings

Easy pork and vegetable stir-fry makes a perfect after-work skillet supper. Serve over rice or in lettuce cups if you're going lower-carb.


  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 4 cups cut up Asian vegetables (packaged, or slice your own baby bok choy, snow peas, cabbage, etc.)
  • 1 pound lean ground pork
  • 1 (9-ounce) package McCormick Sesame Chicken Stir-Fry Skillet Sauce
  • Hot cooked rice (enough for 4 people; or use lettuce cups instead)
  • Garnish: Chopped fresh cilantro


  1. Put the rice on to cook the minute you walk in the door if you don't have leftover rice at the ready.
  2. Heat oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add vegetables and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes, until crisp-tender. Remove from pan into a bowl and reserve.
  3. Add pork to the skillet and cook, stirring frequently, for 3-5 minutes, until cooked through. Add sauce to the pan, stir to combine and bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, 1 minute, until heated through.
  4. Portion hot cooked rice into bowls, top with reserved cooked vegetables, spoon Sesame Pork over the top, and garnish with fresh chopped cilantro if you wish. Dig in!
  5. Serves 4.
