This Whole30 Hoisin Sauce is a game-changer. Make this dish and then thank me later!


For the stir fry:

  •   1-pound pork loin, thinly sliced (as thin as you can possibly slice it)
  •   1 tsp salt
  •   ½ tsp black pepper
  •   3 Tbsp olive oil, divided (or more, if needed for cooking)
  •   12 oz broccolini, florets, cut and stems chopped into bite-sized pieces. (Be sure to cut off the woody ends.)
  •   4 green onions, cut into ½” long pieces
  •   Whole30 Hoisin Sauce (recipe below)

For the Hoisin Sauce:

  •   4 Tbsp coconut aminos
  •   3 Tbsp Compliant almond butter
  •   1 Tbsp orange juice
  •   2 tsp rice vinegar
  •   1 garlic clove, finely minced (or pressed)
  •   1 tsp hot sauce


For the stir fry:

CUT the pork loin into thin strips, place in bowl with salt, pepper, and 1 Tbsp olive oil, and toss to coat evenly.  Marinate for 5-10 minutes.

HEAT 2 Tbsp olive oil over high heat in a frying pan. When oil is hot, place pork loin slices in a single layer in the pan. Cook 3 minutes on one side and 1 minute on the second. Remove from pan and set aside.  Cook in two batches if necessary.

PLACE broccolini and 1 Tbsp of oil in the same pan with a pinch of salt and cook for 2 minutes.  Add the green onions and cook for another 2 minutes. 

RETURN the pork to the pan and cook the entire mixture for one more minute.  Turn off heat.

For the Hoisin Sauce:

PLACE all ingredients into a mini prep food processor (or bowl).

BLEND until all ingredients are well blended.

ADD 4 Tbsp of sauce and stir until well coated. Serve.


Teri Tip:  If you are Kosher, this recipe is delicious with chicken thighs or breast.  You can also substitute clarified butter or Nature’s Best for the butter.
