Stir-Fry Opo With Ground Pork

"Opo is an Asian squash with a flavor similar to zucchini. It looks like a long light green gourd. To prepare, I rinse, peel, seed, and chop into 1" cubes. I often stir fry this or put this in a simple soup with ground pork and onions."

    So simple and so delicious. To lower fat I used ground turkey breast. But really really good. First taste of opo too. Will try it again.

    First time ever buying Opo and found this recipe. OMG! I only had maple breakfast links on hand so I brokeup them up and cooked until browned . Because of the mable, I left out the sugar. This dish is awesome! I will be making this again and again. Thank You for sharing SocaliJL!

    Wow! It so yummy. I added some vermicelli because I only have 1 opo at home. The taste came out so good and delicious. The vermicelli work so well with opo.

    Though the overall look of this dish made me a little nervous, it surprisingly good. Other then substituting the opo with diced zucchini, I followed the directions as given. I think the only thing that I might do differently next time is add about 1 teaspoon of cornstarch with the salt and pepper listed to the ground pork (not the sauce), then add the remaining ingredients. <br/><br/>I will make this again as I love ground pork and found this to be a tasty, quick and easy meal:)
