Easy Pork Stir-Fry
Serves 8 people
No cut of pork is better suited to stir fry than fillet. That said, this recipe assumes you have a good strong stove and a heavy based wok. If the answer to either is no, then always fry the pork in batches, in order to keep the heat high. Also, don’t overcook the vegetables – keep them crunchy.
