Mandarin Pork Stir-Fry

When my husband and I were dating, he told me he liked Asian food. I got a wok and discovered the joy of dishes like this pork stir-fry. —Laurie Martignon, Niagara, Wisconsin

    This was a quick easy dish to make. I also thought it also needed more spices.

    To Selena K: After reading your review, I think when I make this I'm going to add either some of the spices listed or 5 spice powder to the meat before cooking it to see if that helps liven it up a bit. Also, I rarely make an Asian dish without adding additional vegetables but that's personal preference. I'm looking forward to giving it a try!

    Followed the recipe exactly. Felt there was something lacking flavor wise and can not figure what was missing. Maybe green onion? It is fast and easy and had ingredients on hand.

    Basmati rice or even basic brown rice work well with this dish.The orange flavor is a nice twist on regular soy/sesame Asian dishes.

    Loved this simple and fast combination. I tossed with thin speghetti instead of rice. Great for kids!
