"This is a go-to recipe when I want to make a stir-fry with pork. The sauce is excellent and works well with other meats also. I made this again last night but instead of the celery, spinach and cabbage I substituted a 1-pound bag of coleslaw mix. I also added a few torn mustard greens and some julienned zucchini. It was excellent!"
"My brother and mom really liked it, but I thought it was missing something..."
