Roasted Pork and Veggie Stir Fry

I have a glut of red cabbages and potatoes from my CSA that I’ve been attempting to use up. I’ve also got three pork loins, three more beef bottom rounds, and five chickens staring me in the face, waiting to be used up. The chickens are the easy part.  We’re going to break four of them down into parts and save the last ... Read More »
