“I believe this recipe was taken from a very, very old copy of the Canadian version of Reader's Digest, and I think the lady who contributed it was a Canadian marathon runner. For a really spectacular presentation, cut a pineapple in half; use the pulp in this recipe and pile the stir-fry into the shell. An abolutely amazing recipe, I think, but judge for yourself. It is tasty and relatively simple and quick to prepare. (Note: I sometimes add about a cup of mushrooms, too - you can play with the veggie content. I also serve Soy sauce on the side.)”
