Recipe by Happy Harry #2
This recipe is from one of my male students who is from Malaysia. He has changed it some to fit what he can buy fresh here in California. Great use of leftover pork. I've eaten it...it's hot but mellowed by the fruit.

- 1 small red onion, chopped
- 1 small green pepper, thin strips
- 1⁄4 lb mushroom, thin slice
