Marinating the pork for a couple of hours in a savory mixture of soy sauce, red wine, garlic, and ginger really keeps it moist and flavorful. The best part is that you get to reuse the marinade as the sauce for this easy stir-fry recipe. If you have time, here's a tip: Freeze the pork for about one hour before cooking. The result is firmer flesh that's much easier to slice into thin, even pieces. It nicely complements the sautéed onions, carrots, and zucchini. Snow peas and mung bean sprouts are the finishing touches that really put this dish over the top in terms of texture.
