This one comes under the banner of what I call a "Leftover Rescue Recipe". Although you can make this by starting with pork tenderloin medallions, you can use leftover roasted pork loin as well. Here I used the leftovers from a dijon and brown sugar glazed pork loin roast that we had a couple of days before this.
Any recipe that successfully stretches leftovers into a second delicious dinner is bound to get high marks from me since, in general, I am not a big fan of leftovers. I think this one worked very well with the leftover pork.
Easy Stir Fried Pineapple Pork
1 pound fresh pork tenderlion, sliced in medallions (or one pound of leftover cooked pork loin roast, sliced)

In a hot wok, heat the oil and quickly stir fry the pork and garlic for a few minutes. Remove the pork from the wok and set aside.
