Recipe for Mediterranean Pork Stir-Fry

In the family I grew up in we did not have stir-fry meals. As a result I am always on the look for recipes for this type of cooking. This Mediterranean Pork Stir-Fry recipe is a great way to combine fresh vegetables with a small amount of meat. If you have fresh herbs you may substitute them for the dried ones here. Because the dried ones are more potent use about three times the amount of fresh ones.
