Pork & Mango Stir-Fry With Angel Hair Pasta Recipe
This stir fry is one of the recipes that I am reviewing for Taste of Home this month. I also made it especially to welcome my inlaws who are visiting us. You’d think for a meal with that much riding on it, I’d have all the ingredients! Not So! I thought I did. I had even made a grocery list with this dish specifically in mind. But, when I was pulling out the supplies, I was a little surprised to see teriyaki sauce. Say what?! I swear that was not there before! Never fear! I am the queen of never having the right supplies, and the queen of substitutions! It’s what I do. And, dang it! This Pork & Mango Stir Fry is the bomb!
The pictures are just torture, really. You’re gonna have to make this fantastic dinner to truly enjoy this party in your mouth. So…let’s get on with it! The handy, dandy printable is below. One Last Hint: Don’t buy teriyaki sauce! Or sugar snap peas! Or garlic cloves! For heavens sakes, did I have anything this recipe required?! So typical of me.
