I find myself reaching for our Always Pan all the time! It has a non-stick surface, ensuring that every dish effortlessly slides off with minimal mess, making cleanup a breeze. Stains and residues clean off with just a gentle wipe. Plus, its just the perfect size and so versatile. It’s a great go-to pan for everything from sautéing veggies to simmering sauces!

Recipe Variations:

  1. Vegetarian Option: Replace the ground meat with crumbled firm tofu or cooked chickpeas for a vegetarian version.
  2. Seafood Twist: Substitute the ground meat with chopped shrimp, scallops, or a combination of seafood. Adjust cooking time accordingly as seafood cooks faster than meat.
  3. Spicy Kick: Increase the heat by adding more chili garlic sauce or sriracha to the sauce mixture. You can also add red pepper flakes for extra heat.
  4. Nutty Flavor: Incorporate chopped peanuts or cashews for added crunch and nutty flavor. Sprinkle them on top before serving for a delightful texture contrast.
  5. Asian-Inspired Veggies: Experiment with different vegetables such as bell peppers, snap peas, broccoli, or baby corn to customize.

Storage Tips:

  • Refrigeration: Store any leftover stir-fry in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days. Make sure it cools down to room temperature before refrigerating to prevent condensation buildup.
  • Reheating: Reheat refrigerated stir-fry in a skillet over medium heat until heated through, adding a splash of water or broth to prevent it from drying out. If reheating from frozen, thaw overnight in the refrigerator before reheating like above.
  • Meal Prep: This stir-fry is excellent for meal prep. Prepare a batch ahead of time and divide it into individual portions for quick and convenient meals throughout the week. You can also portion out the stir-fry with cooked rice or noodles.
  • Sauce Separation: If the sauce separates upon refrigeration, simply give the stir-fry a good stir before reheating to redistribute the flavors evenly.

Yield 4
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes


  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 medium onion finely diced
  • 1 pound ground meat pork recommended, but can also use chicken, beef, or turkey
  • 4 cloves garlic finely minced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger grated
  • 8 ounces water chestnuts chopped
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
  • 1 teaspoon chili garlic sauce or substitute with sriracha sauce for spicier flavor
  • 1 16- ounce bag of coleslaw mix
  • ½ cup grated or “matchstick” carrots
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper


  • Black sesame seeds
  • 4 green onions thinly sliced
  • Sriracha sauce optional
  • Sriracha mayo optional
  • Fried egg optional


  • In a large skillet or wok, heat sesame oil over medium-high heat.
  • Add diced onions and cook until translucent, about 2-3 minutes.
  • Add ground meat to the skillet, breaking it apart with a spatula, and cook until browned and cooked through, approximately 5-7 minutes.
  • Stir in minced garlic and grated ginger, cooking for an additional 1-2 minutes until fragrant.
  • Add chopped water chestnuts to the skillet and stir to combine with the meat mixture.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together rice wine vinegar, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, and chili garlic sauce (or sriracha sauce). This creates your flavorful sauce.
  • Pour the sauce over the meat mixture in the skillet and stir well to ensure everything is coated evenly.
  • Add the coleslaw mix and grated carrots to the skillet. Stir-fry for about 3-4 minutes until the vegetables are slightly wilted but still crisp. Season with salt and black pepper to taste.
  • In a small bowl, mix together mayonnaise and sriracha sauce to make the sriracha mayo.
  • Serve the sesame pork stir-fry hot, garnished with black sesame seeds, thinly sliced green onions, and a drizzle of sriracha sauce and sriracha mayo if desired. Optionally, serve with a fried egg on top for added richness and flavor.
