    Galley Wench's Note:

    This recipe comes from Simple Cooking Thai & Chinese. Uses ingredients that should be easily obtained here in the states. Note: At the suggestion of reviewers I have increased the marinade ingredients.

      Not too shabby, I added more veggies to make it more weight watchers friendly. I added more soy and red pepper than it called for.

      I would give this more stars if I could - It is so easy and so tasty. I marinated the pork for 3 hours in the fridge in a zip lock bag, turning it often. I added the ginger, garlic & pepper flakes to the marinade and I was generous with the pepper flakes. Only made a half recipe for the two of us. This will be made often and I will also make it with chicken. Thanks Galley Wench for a delicious dinner
