Gingered Pork and Veggies Recipe

Gingered Pork and Veggies Recipe

Tip: Could use 1 tablespoon of diced pimientos instead of red pepper, but add it just before serving. (The reader does this.) Dorothy Bateman of Carver, Massachusetts says she relies on this savory stir-fry when time is short. “It’s wonderful made with a combination of brown and white rice,” adds Dorothy.
