Pork and Broccoli Stir Fry
This is a creation I made last night. I did not base it on any recipe I have ever used before. I actually realized just as I was starting to cook that I didn't have any more Soja Sauce in the house! I ran out quickly to get some - just made it before the shops shut. Anyway, it ended up tasting great so I thought I would share it!
This recipe contains pork, peas (snow), mushrooms (shiitake), carrots, garlic, broccoli, rice (basmati), salt, pepper, tabasco, soy sauce, sesame oil, rice vinegar
