"Stir fry's are so good and it's so easy to work a lot of veggies into a meal with them. I had some yellow bell pepper left from something else, that was chopped into this and it went perfectly."

"Very good, a little salty, maybe from the roast I used. I did substitute celery for the water chestnuts. Will make again!"
"I have to admit I used some substitutions. I used fresh broccoli and cooked a bit longer. I also used leftover pork roast and reduced the time there. When I chopped my ginger, I think I had a bit more than called for, but I'm not a big measure-er. This was delicious! I ate it just as is, with no rice. There wasn't really enough sauce for that and I really didn't want the rice anyway. Very, very good, and I enjoyed it immensely. Thanks for sharing! Made for Holiday tag game."
"This was very good. The sauce had good flavor and thickened up nicely. I used celery instead of water chestnuts and green onion instead of yellow. The pork turned out a bit tough but I think I may have just cooked it a minute too long. I'll definitely try this again."
"Was just okay for me, thank you for sharing but I'm not sure I will be making again. Tasted ok, was easy enough just looking for more flavour."
"I made this using pork shoulder and white instead of brown rice. I also only had ground ginger. Next time, I would probably add salt (just a smidgeon) and lots more ginger so I can actually taste it. It was actually very fun to make even though I don't have a wok. However, I doubled this to 6 servings, and it's more like 8 generous helpings. I had 1 1/2 cups, and I barely made a dent. I am glad I completely missed the "sherry or water" part as this needed no extra water. If you double it like I did, you will use just slightly less than a full can of broth. If it seems dry, just add the extra broth. I ended up pouring mine over the broccoli before I drained it to give some added oomph. This cooks up very quickly, so I advise doing the rice between the vegetables and the pork (just reheat the wok or pan or pot before cooking the pork). To save time, I also dumped the water chestnuts on top of the veggies while the pork cooked and I had a few spare seconds."
"Great Stir Fry for the entire family. I made it as described for a 4 serving and it was fantastic. My 2 and 4 yr old ate it all right up. It will be going into the monthly rotation of great recipes."
"Actually this recipe is great since you can suit it to what you have on hand or what you like, or both!!! I think I probably had more like 1# of pork, and I had a package of mixed stir fry vegetables, used ground ginger, an 8 oz. can of mushrooms, and did not use the pepper flakes. It was easy to put together and my DH and I will finish it tonight. Thanks for this recipe!"
"We enjoyed it, but the sauce just didn't get think enough, even with some additional cornstarch."
"this was a great meal for us and our nutrition plan! I wasn't sure what to do w/ rice so I just through it in to. I did add sliced fresh mushrooms and used fresh brocolli. I did the steps a little different. sauteed pork till almost done then added brocollli let cook till tender crisp then add all vegies until mushrooms just started to get tender, then added sauce until started to thicken. then through in the rice and coated everything well. And this actually fed 4 of us well done that way. thank you will be using again during our 12 weeks to a new body!"
"I thought this was a little too sweet. Not bad, but I won't make it again."
"Very good stir-fry. I made as written and served with Recipe #353198. Great quick meal."
"Delicious! And, oh-so-easy to put together. I used water, which was good, but next time I'll try the sherry...I always like sherry in a sauce. I used about 1 teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes. It was perfect, but I like things hot."
"excellent no going out for chinese any more with this receipe and your chicken cashew we are set."
"This was delicious! I particularly liked the flavor and consistency of the sauce. I followed the recipe as stated except I sprinkled some Essence of Emeril on the pork before stir-frying it. It tasted wonderful but next time I won't bother pre-seasoning the pork, I think the sauce will shine on its own. This is a definite keeper!"
"I loved this recipe. Very similar to beef and broccoli, but used the pork I had on hand. I used about 1 pound of pork and mushrooms instead of the water chestnuts. Otherwise, made the recipe as written. The sauce is delicious and the flavor of the ginger comes though nicely. Thanks for posting."
"We loved it Annacia!This is a recipe my DH asked me to make sure I keep.It is really a good good stir fry.I marinated my sliced pork in the sauce all day.I used fresh broccoli flowerets and added a bit more fresh ginger.I have often seen Beef and Broccoli in chinese restaurant but this was better.I made it for Photo Tag. Thanks for posting. Sage/Rita"
"So good, thank you Annacia! I bought pork stew meat at WalMart and used more chicken broth in place of the water or sherry. Made this in my electric skillet and it was wonderful. Love the crunch from the water chestnuts and the nutty flavor of the brown rice is perfect. Will be making this again soon!"
"I subbed in a pkg of mixed fresh veggies (broc,caul,carrots), used beef broth, omitted the water chestnuts and served with the rice mixed into the stirfry. The little one loved it except for the odd bid of red pepper."
