My husband makes this dish quite often and it is a family favourite.  Serve with steamed rice.  You can mix the Stirfry and rice and place it in a fresh lettuce leaf to eat it…delicious.

Shrimp and Pork Stirfry

2 tbsp vegetable oil

1 pound ground pork

1 onion chopped fine

4 cloves garlic chopped fine

thumb sized piece of fresh ginger peeled and minced fine

1 red pepper chopped

1 hot red pepper minced fine

3 cups snow peas cleaned and cut in half

1 pound cooked shrimp, peeled and cut in half

2 tbsp sherry or Chinese cooking wine

2 tbsp oyster sauce

2 tbsp soya sauce

1 tsp sesame oil

1 tsp black pepper

salt to taste

2 tbsp sesame seeds (optional)

1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro

1 cup fresh bean sprouts

In a deep sauté pan or wok, heat the oil over medium high heat.  Add the pork, onions, and ginger and cook til no more pink is showing in the meat.  Turn the heat under the pan down to medium and add the garlic, hot red pepper, sherry, oyster sauce, soya sauce and sesame oil.  Cook and stir to coat the meat with the sauce for 3-5 minutes.  Add the sweet red pepper, snow peas and shrimp and cook for 5 more minutes.  Top with the fresh cilantro and bean sprouts and cook 1 minute more. Serve in lettuce leaves with steamed rice.  You can add a little extra oyster sauce in the lettuce leaf package if you like.  Enjoy.  Cheers, Michele
