Garlic Pork Stir-Fry Freezer Meal
Easy Pork Tenderloin Freezer Meal
Freezer meals are great to have on hand in the freezer for an easy weeknight meal! I love being a part of a freezer meal group to try new recipes and keep the freezer stocked.
Why We Love This Freezer Meal:
This pork stir-fry recipe is great because it is easy to double or reduce, and the prep is simple and doesn’t require any cooking. I doubled the recipe (as seen in the photos) to get four meals to exchange in the freezer meal group.
Stir-Fry Freezing Tips:
Wait until after the rest of the sauce ingredients are whisked together and divided into bags before adding the crushed red pepper and garlic – this helps to keep them distributed more evenly. Placing the bags in a bowl helps the bags to stand upright so it is easier to add in the ingredients without any spills.
I used a green pepper and an onion for each meal in the photos, but I think it is nice to add a bit more color, so I recommend using half of a green pepper, half of a red pepper, and one onion for the veggies of each meal, if possible. Either way, you’re going to end up with a delicious meal!
Cooking the Garlic Pork Stir-Fry:
When you are ready to cook the meal, take it out of the freezer a day or so in advance to let it thaw in the refrigerator. You will need some oil and cornstarch on hand to make it.
Coat the pork in cornstarch, then cook it in a skillet with heated oil. Add the vegetables and sauce and stir-fry. It only takes about 15 or 20 minutes to get it all ready to go!

Preparing For the Freezer:
- Rinse and trim loin as desired. Cut pork into about 1-inch cubes and divided evenly between two 1-quart resealable freezer bags. Seal.

- Once the onions and bell peppers are chopped, divide them evenly into two 1-quart freezer bags. Seal.
- Into each gallon-size bag, place one bag of pork, a bag of sauce, and a bag of the peppers and onions. Seal and freeze.
Prepare after Freezing:
- Completely thaw one entree in the refrigerator.
- Pour off and discard any liquid from the bag of pork. Add 1/2 cup cornstarch to the bag; seal bag and shake to coat the meat.
- In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add pork and stir-fry until cooked, about 10 minutes. Add vegetables and sauce. Stir-fry until vegetables are tender and crisp. Serve with rice, if desired.
