Yu Shiang Pork

"This spicy dish will convince even the biggest skeptic that Heart Smart® eating does not mean sacrificing taste. I doubt the nutritional data shown here; info as per the cookbook, Heart Smart published by the Henry Ford Health System, the fat content = 11g/serving & calories at 450/serving, both of which sound truer to me. I also doubt the fiber - I tested this by editing to remove the bamboo shoots from the ingredients- the fiber grams DID NOT change at all. That said, the recipe tastes great but if exact nutritional facts are needed, don't count on these for your diet!"

<p>Hello from suburban Fort Worth, Texas! <br /> <br /><br /> <br />______________________________________________ <br /> <br /> <br />*My rating system defined* <br /> <br />Very few recipes really knock my socks off - I love to cook but am not a gourmet. <br />This said: <br /> <br />***** - met all my expectations in taste &amp; appearance; directions were clear &amp; easy to follow. <br /> <br />**** - fell slightly short of my expectations in taste or appearance or directions were faulty or not completely clear. <br /> <br />*** - mediocre taste and/or appearance; most likely a recipe that I would not use again without much modification. <br /> <br />** - taste and/or appearance was not to my liking; a recipe that I would not attempt to modify or use again. <br /> <br />* - taste was absolutely not to my liking (I can't imagine ever using this rating as I can generally tell by the ingredients if I will enjoy the finished product or not) <br /> <br /> <br /><img src=http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e347/Saturn6666/chefbanner1.jpg alt= /> <br />&nbsp;<br />&nbsp;<br /><img src=http://i77.photobucket.com/albums/j44/scmurray51/hagshat.jpg alt= /> <br />&nbsp;<br /><br />&nbsp;</p>
