I liked the sauce but the meat was too salty for me. I DID marinate it overnight which might be the reason. Also I didn't deep-fry the meat because all that oil makes me shudder. I tried stirfrying it in only a small amount of oil but the meat never crisped so I suppose it wasn't a true representation of the dish.

This is quite good... the bean paste adds a nice hint of sweetness to the sauce, without being too much. Don't skip the green onions, their bite is a great match with the pork and sauce. Thanks for posting!
