    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This recipe was taken from Bon Appetit magazine a few years back. You can also make this using chicken breast. If you prefer a thicker sauce texture then add in more cornstarch. To save time chop, blanch/cook the beans and carrot sticks hours in advance. Cooking time is for wok cooking time.

      This was just OK for me. I made it with chicken because I didn't have pork on hand and maybe that was the problem. It just wasn't that flavorful. If I make it again I would use twice as much of the flavoring agents and maybe put in some fish sauce as well. Maybe Chinese food really needs MSG??? (I'm not going there)

      Excellent recipe. I did take a couple of liberties - No peanuts and instead of green onions I added sweet onion. I had some snowpeas in the fridge so added those as well Then end result was a very tasty dinner thank-you KITTENCAL
