GW This recipe has just the right amount of oomph! So tasty, just spicy enough. Great healthy tasty recipe. The pork was so tender and moist, the veggies just cooked enough. Thanks for a lovely Sunday Dinner

Very good stir-fry. I loved the mix of flavors in this dish, with just a little heat from the peppers and the crunch from the cashews. It was easy to prepare and I am putting it on my to do again list right now. Thank you for this great recipe Galley_Wench!
