Coriander Pork Stirfry

I have to be honest with this dish and say it was nice but I don't think I could say it is my favourite stirfry. To me it wasn't that appealing on the eye however it smelt fantastic and did taste nice. Everyone else loved it with all having seconds including Noel.

Saying that it was easy to cook and also falls into the quick category. Making it an excellent dish for a mid week dinner. Cooked with quite a few vegetables, which is always a good thing I have to admit I enjoyed the crunch of the water chestnuts and the bean shoots. I would imagine any vegetables would suit this dish.
