In the Den Kitchen – pork stir fry

This week we decided to have a stir fry but weren’t sure what meat we wanted so off to the butcher’s to get our meat for the fortnight and pick out something to be the star of our stir fry.
I ended up picking a super yummy pork fillet (it’s my favourite cut of pork and I use it in so many recipes) and made this super delicious pork stir fry.
