Rainbow Chard Stir Fry

Rainbow Chard Stir FryMaking a stir fry is a good way to use up odds and ends of vegetables. Since I had Rainbow chard, a red onion, a couple of bell peppers, and some leftover shredded carrots; I decided to stir fry them with a couple of pork chops and some stir fry sauce for a quick dinner a few nights ago. I wasn’t sure about using the chard in a stir fry, but it turned out really good. I also enjoyed some of the leftovers for lunch the next day.
