Italian Pork Stir Fry

Italian Pork Stir Fry

Serves 4
Be sure to cut vegetables into similar sized pieces for even cooking. Don't overload your wok or skillet. Cook in small batches, if necessary, to ensure you stir fry rather than stew. Make sure and prepare all your ingredients ahead of time since once you get the wok or skillet hot, the action happens fast!

Method: 
Heat 2 teaspoons of the oil in a large nonstick skillet or wok. Add pork and cook, stirring constantly, for 3 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, remove pork and set aside. Add remaining 1 teaspoon of oil to the skillet or wok and heat. Add eggplant, celery, green bell peppers, onions, red bell peppers, carrots, Italian seasoning, fennel seeds, chile flakes, and garlic and cook for 5 minutes, adding a little water to prevent sticking. Add tomatoes and tomato juice and continue to cook for 3 minutes longer. Add cooked pork, pasta, spinach, basil and salt and cook 2 minutes longer to heat through. Serve in large bowls, spooned over toasted bread rounds, polenta, or cooked rice.
