This recipe calls for pork but I used chicken thighs. You can also use chicken breasts. It is time consuming but well worth it.
Ingredients



Servings 4-6

1 1⁄2 lbs lean pork, thinly sliced

3 garlic cloves, chopped (optional)

1⁄4 cup cornstarch

2 teaspoons sugar

5 tablespoons soy sauce (divided, more is desired)

4 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided

1 3⁄4 cups water,

2 stalks celery, diced (I added 1 stalk very thinly sliced)

1 large onion, chopped

1 tablespoon molasses (do NOT omit)

1 (5 ounce) can sliced water chestnuts

1 lb bean sprouts (or more) (I used a 14 oz. can of bean sprouts)

1 (4 ounce) can mushrooms, drained (I used fresh sliced mushrooms)

salt and pepper (I left the salt out)

1 bunch green onion (optional) (I used two green onions white and some green chopped)

blanched almond, lightly toasted (I did not use this)







Directions

Cut meat into thin strips.

Combine 2 tbsp cornstarch with sugar, blend in 1 tbsp soy sauce and 2 tbsp oil; mix to blend.

Pour over pork strips; toss well to coat, marinade in mixture for 20 minutes.

In a wok or large saute pan heat 2 tablespoons shortening; brown the meat lightly on all sides in hot shortening (after browning the pork you may add in chopped garlic and saute for 2 minutes if desired).

Add remaining 4 tbsp soy sauce and 1-1/2 cups water; simmer, covered on low heat for 45 minutes.

Add in the celery and onions; simmer for 15 minutes more.

In a small bowl, blend in remaining cornstarch with 1/4 cup water; stir into meat mixture.

Add molasses, water chestnuts, bean sprouts and mushrooms; heat thoroughly.

Season with salt and pepper.

Garnish with chopped green onions and toasted almonds
