Spaghetti Squash & Pork Stir-Fry

September/October 2007

Your rating: None Average: 4.2 (74 votes)

Here's an unusual but delicious way to use the delicate strands of spaghetti squash—in an Asian-inspired pork stir-fry. The flavors of toasted sesame oil, fresh ginger, garlic and a hit of spicy red chile sauce cling to the beautiful strands. Serve with jasmine rice.

Flavorful and Filling

I love this recipe. This was my first experience with spaghetti squash. The hardest part was cutting the squash open, after that it was a breeze. I followed the recipe almost exactly (minus the ginger, b/c I don't like ginger) and the flavors complimented each other well. I used Asian red chile sauce and I did not find the recipe at all spicy. I chose the chile sauce over the chile oil because it's fat free.

I managed to get dinner for two from this recipe with enough left over for 3 lunch portions.

The only reason I gave this recipe 4 stars out of 5 is because Asian food is typically not my go-to, but it's nice every once and a while and this is definitely one of the best Asian-inspired recipes I've had.

filling, flavorful, and easy!

This is a great recipe. The squash had a sweet tast which was a great contrast to the spicy chile, I used garlic chile sauce instead of the sirias (rooster sauce). I also added spinach for colour. No need for rice this is great on it's own!!!

I ended up having to make this with noodles rather than spaghetti squash because my squash was rotten when I opened it up. I have yet to try this recipe with spaghetti squash, though a friend of mine says it's awesome. I made it with soba noodles. It was great! I served the chile sauce on the side to be added to taste since I was serving it to kids.

Easy and nice flavor and texture. Served alone and we ate it all for one dinner.

This was better than I expected. My squash was not mushy at all (cooked at 350 for 40 min, cooled, scraped and stored in the fridge for a few days). I cooked the pork separately first, coated with corn starch, salt and pepper. I put everything together very quickly. I slivered some baby spinach and added it for color, but it didn't really change the flavor. We ate it without rice, since squash is starchy enough for us. Yum.
