Snow Pea Pork Medley
Last night's pork and a microwave oven make this mild main dish a snap to prepare. "We love Chinese food, and this is a favorite in our home," explains Gloria Bisek of Deerwood, Minnesota.

I loved this recipe! This was a great way to use up leftover pork. It is super fast and easy, and surprisingly tastes just as good as a traditional stir fry with hardly any clean-up.
