Oriental Pork Stir-Fry

Susan Feliciano


I think my mother got this recipe with a new electric skillet she bought sometime around 1969-1970. That was when making Asian food at home was taking on in popularity.
The vegetable ingredients can be very individual. We used to add water chestnuts to ours, and sometimes pineapple chunks.
