HOLY COW !!! This was enough for a 4 serving dinner. The flavors were outstanding. A nice change to dinner. Truly enjoyed. Something to make again in the future. I did marinade the pork, as it was truly a gem. Tagged in Holiday Tag..

Tried it with diced pork fillet, added pineapple juice instead of lime I too will probably marinate the pork, I also used beansprouts bamboo shoots, water chestnuts, carrot, white onion and small amount of green cabbage stir fried in oyster sauce. Then placed the pork and papaya on top. First time Dave has had papaya! Lovely....

Truly outstanding! The papaya, lime and chili pepper flavors blend beautifully. A full recipe will feed 6 people if you use enough Chinese greens and serve with rice or noodles. I didn't follow the instructions of only heating for a minute in Step#4 and the pork was overcooked;next time I know one minute is fine! I'll probably marinate the pork next time. Thanks Marra!
