This is a very easy and healthy Wok meal that I often throw together with fresh green beans and extra pork roast or pork chops. It tastes great with very little or no pork too, if you prefer vegetarian dishes. This is best done in a wok over very high heat, but you can stir fry it in a large saute pan if you do not have a wok. This dish is not as spicy as it sounds. Our kids like it, and they don't like very spicy food.
