Help! Pork Sirloin cubes leftover

Could anyone give me suggestions for what to do with 10 ounces of pork sirloin I have in my freezer, left over from another recipe? My first idea is a stir fry or ...

    I'm all in favor of the stir-fry since you only have 10 ounces...this one is our favorite! Have had it many many times!

      Or you can marinate in some juice and chiles, then fry or bake up into porky goodness and make tacos from the meat. You can roast or sautee some vegs to go in the tacos with them, for me all I need is some hot sauce, shredded cheese, squirt of lime and avocado, and I'd be in heaven............

        Either do a Greek marinade (oil, lemon, oregano, garlic, a little marjoram) and skewer them with cherry tomatoes and bell pepper and parboiled pearl onions, and serve on rice with feta crumbles and maybe a cucumber/kalamata relish, or do an Asian marinade (ginger, garlic, soy, maybe pineapple juice) and skewer with bell pepper, mushrooms, pineapple chunks etc. and serve with a bean sprout/celery/onion stiry fry and some egg fried rice. Perfect amt. for 2 people.

          Szekely Goulash, a great old Hungarian dish!
          Cut the meat into cubes, and braise for about 75 minutes with chopped onion, salt, pepper, sweet paprika, and a pinch of ground caraway (until the meat is tender and the liquid is just about gone); add some rinsed sauerkraut and simmer (covered) for another 20 min, then stir in some sour cream.

          One of my favorites since childhood, and a great fall/winter dish, especially with some good European Rye bread.
          You can make it with fresh shredded cabbage too, but resist the urge to substitute: the unusual combination of the sauerkraut and the sour cream is nothing short of a revelation, and is unique to this great dish.

            Thank you all so much! Great ideas by all. Ended up making a pork with broccoli stir-fry with red bell peppers, mushrooms, garlic and red onion. Used oyster and soy sauce in the sauce.
