Equipment

Ingredients

Stir-Fry Sauce

  • 3 Tablespoons fish sauce Red Boat brand (unsweetened, see Recipe Notes)
  • 1 Tablespoon tamarind paste unsweetened (see Recipe Notes)
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/16 teaspoon stevia , to taste (omit for Whole30; omit for AIP)

Stir-Fry Assembly

  • 5 zucchini , spiralized into noodles
  • 1 pound ground pork or prawns, (any meat of choice works great in this dish but cooking times will vary slightly, especially with seafood)
  • 1 cup mung bean sprouts (omit for AIP) or use the <— link to grow your own bean sprouts
  • 1 cup green onions chopped
  • 1/2 cup scallion greens for garnish
  • 1/4 cup lard or avocado oil
  • 2 cloves fresh garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 lime , cut in wedges
  • red pepper flakes optional, to garnish (omit for AIP, but add 1 Tablespoon coconut aminos in its place)
  • 1/2 cup + more for garnish, chopped small cashews or peanuts (see notes-->) use cashews for Whole30/Paleo; use peanuts for Keto/GAPS; omit for AIP

Instructions

  • In a medium bowl, combine and stir together sauce ingredients: tamarind paste, fish sauce, 1/2 teaspoon sea salt and stevia (omit for Whole30 and AIP).
  • Heat large skillet or wok over high heat. Add 2 Tablespoons fat. Add pork, prawns or preferred meat and 1 teaspoon sea salt. Cook, stirring frequently, until no longer pink, about 10-12 minutes for pork or 2-5 minutes for shrimp. If you're using pork, use the spatula to break into small pieces as it cooks.
  • Remove meat to a dish while you continue cooking; set aside.
  • Add remaining 2 Tablespoons fat to hot pan (still over high heat). Add garlic and onions, and sauté until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add zucchini noodles, and cook about 5 minutes, stirring and turning them over consistently (use tongs or 2 forks), until they're hot and slightly wilted. (Cooking times will depend on how big your pan is. With a large pan you can cook the noodles evenly and quickly. If your pan is smaller and cramped, it will take more time and work to cook your noodles evenly.)
  • Add sauce ingredients. Stir to coat. Add meat, bean sprouts and peanuts (use nuts for Whole30/Paleo; omit for AIP). Toss to mix and heat for about 2 minutes.
  • Serve noodles, topped with bean sprouts and scallion greens. Place a lime wedge to one side of each dish. Provide extra fish sauce, (chopped nuts if Whole30/Paleo or peanuts if Keto/GAPS; omit for AIP) and red pepper flakes for passing (omit for AIP but sprinkle over the finished dish 1 Tablespoon coconut amino acids).
