Black Pepper Stir Fry Sauce

Black Pepper Stir Fry Sauce


This black pepper stir fry sauce was so good.  If you love cracked pepper as much as I do, this sauce is for you.

I am a self-proclaimed condiment whore.  If you are too, then you probably already have everything to make this sauce.

The best part of this sauce was the fresh cracked pepper.  It has a nice warm feeling without being too spicy.

How do you crack peppercorns?

A great way is a mortar and pestle!  They are cheap – I found mine at Tuesday Morning, but since their products rotate so much, you can find this one which is similar at Walmart.

This is what it will look like – I added a teaspoon of peppercorns to the mortar, and used 1/2 teaspoon of ground pepper in the black pepper stir fry sauce.

Calories 74 kcal

Ingredients  

  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp sambal oelek (or red chile paste)
  • 1 tbsp vinegar
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp arrowroot (or corn starch)
  • 1/4 cup water

Instructions 

  • Mix all the ingredients together.

  • To make the stir fry – use 1.5 cups veggies of choice – I used carrots, zucchini, garlic and spinach. Use 3 ounces leftover protein of choice – I used 3 ounces pork chop. I also used a 5.2 ounce package of yaki soba noodles.

  • Heat skillet with avocado oil spray. Add carrots and zucchini and cook for 4 minutes. Add garlic and cook one minute. While that cooks, microwave the yaki soba noodles for one minute and using a fork, separate.

  • Add in the noodles, pork and sauce above and cook for 1 minute minute. Add spinach and cook an additional minute. Garnish with toasted black sesame seeds.

Notes

On all WW plans, this sauce is 3 points.

Yaki soba noodles are awesome to keep on hand.  Each package comes individually wrapped and they are fully cooked.  You just need to microwave them for a minute to warm them up, and then just toss them in the stir fry.

Stir fry’s are also a great way to use up any leftover protein or veggies at the end of the week.  That plate above was 12 points on #teamgreen, and totally worth the points.  I hope that everyone knows that they can spend that amount of points and not think “that’s too many points!”

I get that comment a lot – sometimes saying “there was no way I would spend that many points on a meal!”  But then I see how some of them end up hoarding points all day, and then eating all their food from 6-10 p.m.  Eat bigger meals and I promise you won’t be standing in front of your pantry at 9:00 p.m.

If you love stir fry, try my shrimp and green bean stir fry.  Be sure to let me know if you try this.  Until next time!
