We cook with pork a lot, as we enjoy switching it up when we cook, so we will cook with beef, chicken, pork, and lamb as our main meat dish quite often.

Usually we will also have a seafood dish and a veggie dish and eat everything family style. This dish already has the meat and veggies so it’s pretty great for a one dish entrée also.

About Snow Peas

In case you’re not very familiar with snow peas, it’s a very popular veggie used in Chinese cooking. Here’s some additional info about this delicious and healthy vegetable!

How to Eat Snow Peas?

You can buy snow peas fresh or frozen from the grocery store. I prefer fresh, and actually many grocery stores will have them already washed and packaged, ready to eat. You can eat snow peas cooked or raw.

A very popular to cook snow peas is to stir fry it (which is what we will do in this recipe.) To eat raw, you can add in salads and serve with dressing.

Prior to cooking or eating raw, you can remove the tough string around the pod. This is optional, but recommended if you prefer to not have to deal with the harder tougher parts of snow peas.

Are Snow Peas Good For You?

Snow Peas are good for you! They are packed with vitamin A and C, iron, magnesium, fiber, potassium, and folic acid. All this and being low in calories! To learn more about snow peas health benefits, check out this article.

Are Snow Peas and Snap Peas the same?

Snow Peas and Snap Peas are very similar – both are shelled with peas in the pod. They both are low in calories, while being nutritious (fiber, vitamin C, etc.). However, Snow Peas and Snap Peas are not the same.

Snap Peas are actually crossed between snow peas and garden peas (aka sweet peas)! Physically, snow peas are flatter and contain smaller peas inside. Snap Peas pods are more rounded and their peas are also bigger.

Taste wise, snow peas are less sweet than snap peas. But both are tender and crisp. Also, opposite of garden peas/sweet peas, you can eat the shell of snow peas and snap peas.

How to Stir Fry Pork with Snow Peas and Mushrooms

First gather your ingredients:

  • 1 lb pork, thinly sliced (you can buy pork and do this yourself, or you can also often find pre-sliced pork in the hot pot section of Asian supermarkets)
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 3 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 2 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 1 cup snow peas

Combine pork and marinade/sauce ingredients (soy sauce, cornstarch, sesame oil) in a large bowl or zip lock bag. If you are about to cook it, let it marinade at the very least 15-30 minutes. If you are making this ahead, cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes before cooking.

In a large nonstick cooking pan or wok, heat cooking oil over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, add garlic, and let it heat up for about half a minute.

Then add the pork, and stir fry until mostly browned. Remove pork and garlic from pan.

Add snow peas and mushrooms in to cooking pan. Stir fry everything together for about another 2-3 minutes.

Add the pork and garlic from earlier back in to pan, and stir fry another 1-2 minutes or until pork is cooked thoroughly and the veggies have softened (but not soggy! It’s yummier when there’s still a little crunch to it).

Remove from heat and serve!
