Menu Plan for Fall I: Week 12, Wednesday

Pork Amandine
Brown Rice

Cooking time: 30 minutes for menu           Cooking schedule: see below for instructions

          Pork lends itself so well to stir-fries but you could substitute chicken, turkey or even tofu if you prefer.  If you buy a larger tenderloin, divide it and freeze half for another time.  Or use boneless chops.

Pork Amandine

Total time: 30 minutes
     Loaded with celery and almonds, this was a classic dish on the menu of the Chinese restaurant I worked with. I have added a bit more pork and some fresh ginger to my version and serve it over brown rice.
