Quick and Easy recipe for Chinese Pork and Mushroom Stir fry with a delicious marinade. Serve with jasmine rice for a perfect dinner, better than a take-out!

The trick with making any Chinese food and it's guaranteed success is to prepare everything before hand. You need to get all your ingredients together, chopped, diced, toasted, sauces prepared in little bowls, absolutely everything that belongs in a recipe must be at hand when you fire your wok up to inferno temperatures!

The idea is to cook everything very quickly, on a high heat, so that all the juices, natural vitamins and minerals are sealed for maximum flavour and goodness.
Not only are flavours and nutrients important in Chinese cooking, but texture also carries a high importance.

In this dish, you have the soft tender texture (yes, tender, not dry and stringy) of the thin slices of pork meat, against the crunchy slightly chewy cashew nuts, with a gentle sweetness from the peas, all married together with that distinctive light Chinese flavour sauce that comes with a stir fry.
