Pork stir fry



We were just back from vacation so I grabbed some pork from the store not really knowing what I was going to make. I though a stir fry would be good and quick so I came up with this recipe to satisfy the taste I imagined. Hubby gave it a thumbs up so I thought I'd better write it down!
The flavor is reminiscent of sweet and sour pork with no extra sugar added.
