Adding tropical ingredients like chopped mango and coconut milk make this 15-minute stir-fry special. Red curry powder is a blend of coriander, cumin, chiles, and cardamom. Use it to give this quick stir-fry a hint of Thai flavor.
Skip greasy takeout food and go for this healthy and fast dinner that's so much more enjoyable. To make it even easier, warm up ready-to-serve brown rice in the microwave and supper is ready to go (with one less pan to wash). —Donna Lindecamp, Morganton, North Carolina Skip links
Our take on the iconic Chinese takeout dish swaps out the beef for pork tenderloin -- it's tasty, tender, and affordable. Hone the technique by cooking each ingredient separately over super-high heat, then combining, and you can apply it to all kinds of vegetables and proteins.
This is the ideal weeknight meal. You can prep all your ingredients earlier in the day, and then it takes 10 minutes for it to come together. Center-cut loin pork chops are very lean, so they cook quickly and are a great alternative to chicken, but boneless, skinless chicken breast can certainly stand in for the pork, if you'd like. Serve with steamed jasmine or brown rice to round out the meal.
If you've got veggies and a protein, you can make stir fry! Stir fries are quick and they're great because you can basically use whatever you have on hand. Really, you just can't go wrong with a bowl full of veggies. And it'll be way better than takeout! See more frugal recipes!
