    This meal is healthy and light, but not one that I would make again. I did add mushrooms and asparagus to the dish. There are too many excellent stir fry dishes available to make.

    I used chicken instead of pork and added water chestnuts, which turned out well! I'll make again, but will try to add mushrooms next time.
