Now we’re finally getting towards a point where society can interact with each other again, albeit still limited as to what we can do, at least there are shops we can visit again and of course the gym too!
So this fast-to-fix stir-fry really stands out as a perfect recipe to give a go this month, for evenings when you’re in a rush to cook a healthy meal. The citrus glaze that coats the tender pork and vegetables is ridiculously tasty. Ginger, garlic and orange juice provide additions to its terrific taste.
