  • 1 lb lean ground pork
  • 8 oz sliced mushrooms I used baby bellas
  • 1 small onion sliced
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp grated fresh ginger
  • 12 oz bag washed & trimmed fresh whole green beans
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1/4 cup water


  • 2 tbsp reduced sodium soy sauce reg can be used too
  • 2 tbsp mirin or white wine
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2 tsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp sriracha
  • 1 tsp dark sesame oil


  • Whisk together all the sauce ingredients in a small bowl; set aside.
  • Heat 1 tbs oil in a large skillet or wok over high heat. Add the sliced mushrooms and cook until they release all their liquid and begin to brown. Remove from pan and set aside.
  • Add the ground pork to the same skillet and cook over high heat until pork is cooked and begins to brown. Remove from pan and set aside.
  • Add the remaining 1 tbs of oil to the wok/skillet and add the garlic, ginger, onion and green beans. Stir fry until very aromatic--about 1-2 minutes. Add the water and cook until green beans are crisp-tender; about 2 minutes.
