Kung Pao Pork

This is a wonderful, flavorful dish that I love to make. I use a cast iron wok which really helps, but a cast iron or other heavy fry pan will work as well. The combination of vegetables, peanut butter and spice is fantastic! You can substitute chicken for the pork as well.  I hope you will try this!
