Hawaiian Pork Stir Fry

Here’s a healthy option for a Hawaiian Pork Stir Fry, The cornstarch helps to thicken the sauce a bit, but if you don’t have it you can use flour, you just won’t have the shiny-ness in the sauce that cornstarch gives.  If you don’t have flour then just the wine down to about 1/4 to keep it from being a runny sauce.  The recipe will also work with chicken, beef or tofu if you want to use this recipe more than once.
