Comments: 10/31/2019 - I sort of followed this recipe. I had one precooked pork chop,
which I sliced thinly and added at the third to last step. I don't know what sambal oelek chili
or dark soy sauce are. I omitted the sambal oelek and the red pepper flakes. I used two teaspoons of
ginger powder and no minced ginger. I could not find sno peas so I used a can of
little corn. I served it on rice rather than noodles. The ginger
gave it a spicy flavor even though the red pepper was omitted. We had two servings each.
