    KillerTasteBuds's Note:

    This recipe is from my husbands side of the family. They don't use measurements or amounts when they cook, so I will do my best to give approximates. You can adjust accordingly. This is a good, easy, fast recipe that is great for a weekday meal. We serve it over rice and chinese noodles. Yum!

      Versatile and delicious! Love how it uses ingredients that I typically have on hand. I seasoned pork with about 1/4 teaspoon of pepper, used about 1 1/4 cups water, added 3 tablespoons of soy instead of 2, and used the stated amount of chicken bouillon. I put soy and bouillon in right away with the veggie/meat so it would saturate the meat while simmering. I ended up using 2 tablespoons of cornstarch to thicken but that depends upon the water amount. Made for my PAC Spring 2010 baby!
