Apple Pork Stir-Fry

Jo Ann Erpelding of Canton, Michigan shares this super stir-fry with a twist. Water chestnuts bring a slight crunch to the tender pork and veggies, while apple pie filling lends a complementary sweetness.

    Very good. Need to double sauce. Left out pie filling. Didn't see the need. Sweet enough without it. It was the best stir-fry I have fixed. I used Chinese noodles and husband used rice!!
