This was awesome, but I did deviate slightly. I marinated/cooked the pork as described, but then sliced it thinly and put it to one side. Then I sauteed some red pepper, garlic and those little baby yellow corncobs that you get in Chinese food sometimes, and then - once they were cooked/warmed through - I added the pork and the garlic sauce and then stirred to combine. Didn't use any noodles . . just served the saucy pork/pepper/corncob combo with some steamed rice. Really, REALLY good!
Toned down the Asian Chili a bit for the family (I love HOT foods) and was a big crowd pleaser without a major investment in my home time. I put it on a bed of vermachelli rice noodles which drank in the garlic sauce. Good meal for working families.
Cheated because I was short on time. Used bottled Shanghi barbeque sauce and then made the garlic sauce. The garlic sauce was awesome. I used it on my stir fry veggies and it was really great. Thanks!
