Pork Cantonese

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Koechin Chef

A wonderful pork dish, inspired by a Chinese Restaurant Meal. It can also be made with beef sirloin. But I have found the pork to be more tender and flavorful.

I too used pork and we found this dish to be very flavorful and tender. The sauce was as good as you get in a restaurant! The combination of ingredients is perfect and we loved the different textures. This is a winner for sure, Koechin (Chef).
