Cantonese Pork

Updated on January 28, 2012

This recipe for Cantonese Pork offers a way to prepare pork that mushroom lovers will enjoy. The sauce is a little sweet, but not overly so. It's a perfect blend of flavors that complement each other to pleasure the palate. Prep time can be cut in half by using a food processor for chopping peppers, onions and mushrooms, but even if you don't have a food processor, this dish can be on the table within an hour from start to finish.

      Oh, this sounds so good! We've had to stop eating Chinese food out because of my hubby's recent heart surgery, so I can't wait to try this to bring some Oriental style cuisine back into our lives:)
