      Another excellent dish. Yes, the pork was the best part. I've never done breading like that before, but it was perfect! I might try that with sweet and sour chicken sometime... Oh, yeah, we skipped the soy sauce due to allergy...

      Exceptional is right! The best part of the stir fry is the pork and I generally prefer the vegetables. It was so tender and flavorful. Beautiful, colorful presentation. It's a simple and truly outstanding recipe.

      DELICIOUS stir fry. Twice while we were eating DH said how good it was. Used broccoli instead of peas but will try peas next time. Loved it.
