    2 tbsp canola oil
    1 cup sliced celery
    1 cup sliced green onion

Heat oil in heavy skillet; add pork and stir-fry over high heat for 2 minutes until meat is no longer pink. Add celery, green onion, mushrooms, water chestnuts, pea pods and ginger. Stir-fry for 5 minutes over high heat until vegetables are tender-crisp. Toss in the wild rice until evenly blended.
