This was awesome, but I did deviate slightly. I marinated/cooked the pork as described, but then sliced it thinly and put it to one side. Then I sauteed some red pepper, garlic and those little baby yellow corncobs that you get in Chinese food sometimes, and then - once they were cooked/warmed through - I added the pork and the garlic sauce and then stirred to combine. Didn't use any noodles . . just served the saucy pork/pepper/corncob combo with some steamed rice. Really, REALLY good!
Wow is all I can say. This pork blew my mind! I doubled the recipe and cooked it for 20 minutes longer than suggested, and it turned out perfect. I loved how the sauce became sticky as it cooked. It was very good with sesame noodles the first time around, and just as good in spring rolls the next day. Thank you for posting!
Got this recipe a long time ago from East Meets West. Quite good. I add a little sriracha to the mix that gets poured onto the pork. No more than a 1/4 of a teaspoon, sriracha can overwhelm other flavors very easily. I also put a little bowl of sriracha for dipping the pork into at the table. I prefer to use sesame oil and chili flakes if I don't have any chili oil, but I don't care of Tabasco so that's more a personal preference.
