  • Pour remaining 2 tablespoons oil into the same wok over medium-high heat; saute chile peppers until well-coated with oil and fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add pork to chile peppers and generously season with salt. Cook and stir mixture until peppers are tender, 5 to 7 minutes more. Mix enough soy sauce into pork mixture to add color and taste for desired saltiness.

This was a good recipe and probably very authentic. It is very simple but tasty. I used 3 jalapenos and that was too much; would cut down to 1-1 1/2 jalapenos next time. Served with rice and a steamed vegetable this is a fast and healthy meal. Read More

Very easy to make. A great way to clear out the left over chops and pork stew meat. Served with rice and collard greens. Read More
