Leftover Pork Stir Fry

We only ate about half that roast pork the other day so a stir fry is a great way to finish it off. I needed bean sprouts and mushrooms to complete the dish so I did quick shopping. 

I put rice on, plain white rice, the flavour will be in the sauce.  I started by sweating to golden a diced onion and a clove of garlic in rice oil with a bit of sesame oil added. Next I gave the mushrooms a sear. I took all that out of the pan and coated the thin slices of pork with flour.  They went in the pan with plenty of oil. When there was a nice sear on the meat I put all the carrot, celery,  bean sprouts and frozen mixed sweet peppers in. I added an ounce or two of chicken stock, a tablespoon of soy sauce and a tablespoon of molasses.  Toss and serve over the rice when the vegetables have softened. I also put extra soy sauce on my rice, Fern has his plain.

It doesn't look particularly special but the flavour is all there.  This is my favourite leftover meal.
