Reviews for Mandarin Pork Stir-Fry
"Followed the recipe exactly. Felt there was something lacking flavor wise and can not figure what was missing. Maybe green onion? It is fast and easy and had ingredients on hand."
"Basmati rice or even basic brown rice work well with this dish.The orange flavor is a nice twist on regular soy/sesame Asian dishes."
"Loved this simple and fast combination. I tossed with thin speghetti instead of rice. Great for kids!"
