  1. Would ground turkey or chicken work well in this recipe? Thank you!

    1. I would suggest ground chicken or ground beef.

  2. I just made this dish for my family. We loved it. The only thing I’d do differently next time is add more veggies (but I’ma huge veggie lover my motto is the more veggies the better). Some snow peas, carrots, and definitely extra brocollini. I love, love, love brocollini (the more the better). Having said that my 3 year old inhaled her food and came back for mine.

    1. Thanks so much !

  3. Great recipe! It took me a while to prep but definitely worth it! I had a lot of stir fry infuser left over (maybe I did something wrong?) and I decided to taste the recipe before adding the remaining infuser. I’m so glad I did! It was already packed with flavor and I think the additional infuser would’ve made it too salty for me. Next time I think I’ll do just 1 pound of pork. I’ve done 5 whole 30s and cook whole 30 at home in between them. This just made my top 5 recipes list! Yum.

    1. The extra infuser is just for you to have in your refrigerator for the week and to enjoy on many things. I would always do a pound and a half because the leftovers are amazing

    2. And you definitely don’t add the remaining infuser you just add what is mentioned in the recipe just follow those directions
