Simple and tasty pork stir-fry with vegetables

In this recipe, I am going to show you how easy it is to make a delicious pork stir-fry using tender pork loin and using canned bamboo shoots and dried black fungus, also known as cloud ear fungus or wood fungus. If you have been following me, you would have seen that I have used black fungus in my last recipe – chicken stir-fry. The difference is that last week I used the fresh black fungus, which I managed to find at my local fruit and vegetable supermarket. That was the first time I have bought it fresh in a...
