This was a delicious stir-fry. We used regular pork loin because that's what my husband brought home from the store, and I doubled the amount of rice in case we wanted more. Making what the recipe called for would have certainly been enough--but the leftover rice will be pretty tasty on its own. I also doubled the garlic. Very clear directions made it especially easy. Thanks for posting!
