Cubed pork forms the basis for a quick meal. The cubes of pork, trimmed of fat and already in bite-sized pieces, cook fast and can be used in a variety of stews, stir-fries and other dishes. Cubed pork usually is cut from the loin -- the leanest part of the pig. Combine the cubed pork with vegetables such as onions, peppers and tomatoes and season with salt and pepper and fresh herbs.

Stew

Step 1

Heat oil in a heavy skillet. Add the pork cubes and stir until just browned.

Step 2

Add the pork to a slow cooker, along with your choice of vegetables and seasonings. Green chilis, corn, cumin and chili powder will make a southwestern-style stew to serve over rice or with tortillas, while paprika and onions will produce a hearty paprikash.

Step 3

Cook the stew on low for six to eight hours. Do not stir or lift the lid. At the end of this time, stir the stew and add any additional dairy ingredients, such as sour cream or shredded cheese.

Stir-fry

Step 1

Season the pork cubes with pepper, paprika or soy sauce.

Step 2

Heat oil in a wok or a heavy skillet. Add seasoned pork.

Step 3

Cook, stirring, until the pork is browned. Remove the pork from the pan and keep warm while you stir-fry vegetables such as onions, garlic, zucchini, carrots and green beans.

Step 4

Combine vegetables and pork and serve the dish over rice.
