    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.

      This was very good and we really enjoyed. That said, there was not enough marinade to cover my meat even after doubling it and there wasn't enough to add any extra to the dish. So I added extra chicken stock and some extra soy sauce and thickened with more cornstarch. Loved it. I wanted a hint of heat so added some of my hot pepper oil for a little of the oil. Served this over rice noodles. Thanks GW for another great meal.

      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
