    currybunny's Note:

    This recipe, from "Authentic Recipes from China", is just sensational! While I wouldn't classify it as hot, just gently warm, we didn't add any extra chili oil just because the flavours as written were so perfect. You know you're onto a winner when DH eats a portion for 3 people!

      Loved this dish. I added siricha sauce to the broth mixture. Couldn't find peanut oil so used olive oil. I think the key is getting the pork crispy. Excellent super simple meal.
