This was a fabulous dish and I wish I had put shrimp in it....but DH hates shrimp that is not super fresh, so I did not include it. The flavors are so simple they are complex. I added snow peas that I had left over but otherwise I followed the directions to the letter. For the shredded pork (was not sure about this ingredient) I used thinly sliced boneless pork chops that I cut into strips. I could not get the noodles to crisp like a cake. Some of the noodles began to char so I had to remove the wok from the heat. But, the areas that were crunchy gave a FABULOUS texture to this dish. I would make this one again.
