Ginger Pork Stir-Fry

My recipe box is full of delicious pork recipes, but this fast-to-fix stir-fry really stands out from the rest. My family loves the citrus glaze that coats the tender pork and vegetables. Ginger, garlic and orange juice provide its terrific taste. —Jackie Hannahs, Cedar Springs, Michigan

    This was good, but the sauce wasn’t as flavorful as I expected. If I make this again, will add more ginger than 1/4 tsp and increase the rest of the sauce ingredients to yield a little more. I used sugar snap peas instead of snow peas and added water chestnuts and mushrooms. I’ll also add some pineapple chunks or tidbits next time. Served it over brown rice and with some spring rolls.

    I usually don't prepare meals like this one so this was a nice change for my family. I forgot to buy snow peas, instead I used some frozen peas I had in the freezer. It didn't take long to prepare and was obviously a hit. Next time I will double the recipe, it was not enough for a hungry family of 5.
