for pork

  • 1 pound pork (we used loin)

  • 1.5 tablespoons of water

  • 2 teaspoons of Chinese wine

  • 2 teaspoons oyster sauce

  • 2 teaspoons of cornstarch

  • 1.5 teaspoons of cooking oil

  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder

For Frying Sauce

  • 3 tablespoons of water

  • 2 tablespoons of soy sauce

  • 2 tablespoons of honey

  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce

  • 1 tablespoon of hoisin sauce

for frying

  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil, divided

  • 1 small onion, chopped

  • 3 chopped green peppers (we used red, yellow and green peppers)

  • 3 carrots, sliced

  • 6 ounces mushrooms, sliced

  • 1/3 cup cashews

  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes

  • 4-5 cloves of garlic, finely chopped

  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, finely chopped

  • 6 ounces snow peas


  1. Slice the pork very thinly (about 1/8 inch) against the grain and place in a bowl.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix water, Chinese cooking wine, oyster sauce, and baking soda. Pour over the pork and mix well with your hands. Allow the liquids to be absorbed by the meat.
  3. Add cornstarch and 1.5 tablespoons of oil and mix. Let the meat marinate while you prepare the other ingredients.
  4. Heat a tablespoon of oil in a wok over high heat.
  5. While hot, add the pork in a single layer. Leave undisturbed for 30 seconds, then mix. Cook until just opaque, remove to a plate.
  6. Reduce the heat to medium high. Add the remaining tablespoon of oil, then add the onions, peppers, carrots, mushrooms, cashews, and red pepper flakes. Stir fry for about 5 minutes.
  7. Add the aromatics (ginger and garlic). Cook for a minute, then add the sauce.
  8. Cook for a few minutes until the sauce begins to boil. Add the peas and pork, cook for about a minute longer, then serve with your favorite rice or noodles.
