Spicy Pork and Kumquat Stir-Fry

Total Time
Prep 10 mins

We have a kumquat tree so I'm always looking for ways to creatively use our crop. Will be making this for dinner tonight, so I can't say whether or not it's a keeper, but wanted to post anyway. Bon Appétit | November 1992 Round out this fast and easy entrée with steamed rice and a sprinkling of finely chopped green onions.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Blend first 5 ingredients in medium bowl. Combine kumquats and sugar in small bowl. Let stand 30 minutes, stirring kumquat mixture occasionally.
  2. Heat oil in heavy large nonstick skillet over high heat. Add ginger and stir 1 minute. Add pork mixture and stir-fry until pork is just cooked through, separating pork strips, about 3 minutes. Add kumquat mixture, broth and vinegar and stir until sauce boils and thickens, about 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper.

This is delicious! I too have a kumquat tree and was looking for recipes. I made it without the oyster sauce and added fish sauce instead and stir fry vegetables. I served it over rice. I'm going to try it with chicken and tofu. Great recipe, thanks!

Excellent! A little bit spicy, exactly the way we like it! I had received some Kumquats from a friend and this recipe was very unique in their usage. I added some stir-fried vegetables and brown Basmati rice to the meal, everyone liked it! Thank you for posting this recipe!
