I love, love, love Oriental food & I enjoy attempting to recreate some of our favorites right here at home. The ones that pass the test I post & this was my latest creation! Go ahead & play with your food as you make it. You might come up with some GREAT DISHES! Enjoy a taste of the Orient, We DID!

2 LBS Pork Sirloin cut into thin strips
2 TBS Vegetable Oil
1 Onion Sliced
2 Ribs Celery sliced on the diagonal
1 TBS Minced Garlic
1 Bag Frozen Broccoli, Cauliflower & Carrot Medely
1 Can Bamboo Shoots
1, 1/4   Wedge of Cabbage cut as for slaw
2 Tsp, 5 Spice  Chinese Powder

2 TBS Black Bean Sauce ( store bought )
2 TBS BBQ Sauce
2 TBS Honey
2 & 1/2 Cups Water ( cold)
1/4 Soy Sauce
3 TBS Cornstarch

1 Can Chinese Rice Noodles Crunchy to sprinkle on top!

  Place oil in Wok or deep skillet heat to a sizzle. Add meat & stir as you cook. Add onion & celery once meat is no longer pink. Stir & cook for a minute or 2. Add remaining veggies & spices. Cook & stir until veggies are tender but still slightly crisp. Now stir all the sauce ingredients together, whisking to remove all lumps of cornstarch.  Stir into your meat mixture & stir & cook until sauce is bubbling, thickened & clear. Serve over hot rice & sprinkle the crispy rice noodle over the top.   AMAZING! You will think it is Chinese Take Out but YOU MADE IT YOURSELF!
