Recipe by Caroline Cooks
Makes a great less than 30 minute week night dinner. An original recipe that I created for the 2 for 1: Leftovers Challenge in Cooking Photos. Make it your own by adding other or more veggies, and by increasing the hot red chili sauce--if you're a red hot lover. LOL

An awesome tasting stir fry! While I often make a stir fry with that which I have on hand - love adding recipes that we can go to - and this is going to be one of my go to recipes. Being very fond of hoisin sauce and apple cider vinegar knew this was going to be a winner at our house - and it was! Made with pork as directed - but also made with marinated beef strips with equally good results. Thank you for sharing your original recipe Caroline - we enjoyed!

- 1 1⁄4 cups cooked pork, cut into strips (use leftover pork roast, if you have it)
