* 12 ounces of thinly sliced leftover cooked pork roast can be substituted for uncooked pork. If using leftover roast, delete oil in recipe.

Serving Suggestions: Great with leftover pork roast instead of stir-frying pork strips. Make sure if younger cooks are helping to have an adult use the broiler.
