While I was in the Adirondack Mountains last weekend we had some leftover Pork Loin from a barbecue. What is one to do with a pound of pork and four people to feed?
I went the traditional diet route. Both Asians and Mediterraneans have alway use meat as a condiments instead of the main course. By mixing meat with vegetables you add flavor to a dish with out adding too much fat and too much protein.
The pork in this stir fry can be subsituted with any leftover meat you have on hand: chicken, boiled ham, steak, even fish...
