Hack: Check the produce department of your local grocery store for loose mushrooms to avoid having to buy an entire package. If you don’t see them, ask a clerk if they are available.

Hack: Do you know that you can freeze fresh ginger root? If you choose organic ginger, you don’t have to peel it but you will have to thaw it before slicing.

Hack: Chop any leftover green onions and freeze in a sealable freezer bag or container for future use.

  1. I love the hacks you are mentioning at the end of the recipe. I didn’t know ginger root can be kept in the freezer, it’s a great idea. Same with chopped green onions. 
    I think these ingredients would be go lovely with chicken as well (my favorite meat), don’t you think? It’s a very nice combination that will definitely taste great. 

    1. I think this will absolutely go well with chicken and I’m going to try that out myself.  Thank you for the great idea!  I’m happy that you found the hacks helpful/

  2. what a delicious post this is. your video lightens the written words of the recipe. can you please tell us that the final taste is compatible with most of the food taste here in Asian countries like ours in Sri Lanka.

    1. This recipe is from my sister-in-law, who grew up in southwest China.  I’m not sure how the food in that area compares to Sri Lanka but I’ll hope you’ll let me know after you’ve tried the recipe!

    1. Thank you for your kind comments, Dragan!  I assume you’re asking me how long it takes to cook the pork?  It will depend on how thinly it’s sliced but it should take less than 5 minutes, just until all the pink is gone.  I hope this helps!
