Stir-Fried Pork with Shiitake Mushrooms and Snow Peas

SAVE THIS RECIPE SAVED! REMOVE THIS RECIPE ADD TO MEAL PLAN

This is a pork stir fry recipe which uses some spring ingredients which I have seen locally at our farmer's markets. It has been adapted from Cook’s Illustrated. It can be served over brown rice, quinoa or couscous. One of my tasters, Pearl loved this so much and used the word "scrumptious" to describe it. I almost fell over, as she is one of my toughest customers! The last time I made it I used a combination of shiitake mushrooms and baby bellas, so if shiitake mushrooms aren’t available then make a substitution for another mushroom! Mushrooms are a great source of protein, B vitamins, many minerals and fiber. There is also interesting research on how shiitake mushrooms may have cancer-fighting properties.
