  1. I made this yesterday: just the pork veggies dish, and a modified version using snow peas instead of sugar snap peas and without the shitake (since I didn’t have any, sadly). It was great!

  2. I absolutely love choi sum — so crunchy and tasty — but alas I never know how to prepare it besides just steaming it with garlic salt and oil. The use in this recipe looks delicious and easy so I’m bookmarking it and will give it a try later. Thanks!
