Introduction

To capture the extra sauce, be sure to serve this stir-fry over rice. I double the recipe and usually serve over white or brown rice with baked won ton crisps.

    I can't have pineapple so substituted red and yellow bell pepper for color. I used maraschino cherry juice for the pineapple juice and the cherries for the pineapple. - 8/4/20
