Broccoli Pork Stir-Fry
“I downsized this handy one-pot recipe years ago for my husband and me,” writes Wendy Nuis from Stokes Bay, Ontario. “It's delicious, versatile and so easy to double when company comes.” TIP: “Try substituting Italian sausage for pork or adding extra veggies for more color and nutrition,” Wendy says.
