Freeze pork for 30 to 45 minutes for ease in slicing; cut across grain into

teaspoon cornstarch and pepper; mix well and pour over pork. Cover and marinate
in refrigerator 4 hours or overnight.
Pour oil around top and sides of preheated wok; heat for about 2 minutes at
medium-high. Add marinated pork (undrained) to wok; stir-fry for 3 minutes. Add
carrots and red pepper; stir-fry for 2 minutes. Add yellow squash, zucchini and
green onions; stir-fry for 3 minutes. Add Chinese pea pods and broccoli and
for 2 minutes.
Combine beef bouillon, wine, 1 tablespoon cornstarch, remaining 1/2 tablespoon
soy sauce and sugar; pour over vegetables and pork. Stir-fry over medium heat
for 3 to 5 minutes until sauce is thickened and bubbly.
Serve immediately over hot cooked rice, if desired.
