Jo Ann Erpelding of Canton, Michigan shares this super stir-fry with a twist. Water chestnuts bring a slight crunch to the tender pork and veggies, while apple pie filling lends a complementary sweetness.

  • 1/2 cup apple cider or unsweetened apple juice
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 pound boneless pork loin chops, cut into strips
