Very good, very easy! Sprinkling with some fresh lime juice at the end makes it extra tasty!

This is a really fantastic tasting meal and super easy and quick weeknight meal! I will add a jalepeno as I can't find the chili but with or without it it's still really good!
UPDATE: I make this all the time and it's so good. So flavourful! I just grate the ginger (which I peel and keep in the freezer) and it's a very delicious and quick meal.

This was a 5 star for sure. I followed the directions to a tee. (Sub jar ginger for fresh.) At the very end I did add a bag a stir fry veggies, cooked 5 min. Served with rice. Very tasty. Very good. A little greasy due to the pork. Entire family enjoyed it.
