KENYAN STIR FRY PORK STRIPS

So many ways to cook pork and I have only just began. Its already the second por recipe this month and I’m already looking for other ways that I can enjoy pork. I had the most amazing pork at a place along Mlolongo Mombasa Road that apparently specializes in all kinds of pork recipes. From pork fry, grilled pork, stewed pork to stewed pork. I guess you can say I’m trying to replicate that dish. I could go and ask the chef about his recipe, trouble is, I’m not sure I remember the place. It was tucked away among many vibandas… I still have to look for it. But honestly this recipe came out of a missing ingredient, tomatoes. I was just going to make a simple pork recipe for lunch that just included frying the pork in onions, tomatoes, adding salt, and that was it! But then it was already lunch and I didn’t want to go to the grocers. Luckily I had some veggies  like french beans, carrots and bell peppers, so I decided to make the recipe a blog post, and here we are.
