It is officially grill all the things season, yey!. This time we had an abundance of delicious grilled pork and vegetables and I was quite unsure what to do with it. So, I ended up revamping the leftover grilled pork into something totally different, this sticky pork stir fry with noodles which ended up being a delicious and quick way to get a weekday dinner. It was surprising in flavour as the smokiness of the pork worked really well with the sweet and savoury sauce and together with a bit of a kick from the chili really give it an edge.
