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. You can of course swap any of the meat and vegetables to suit what you have available, as always, our recipes at Lovefoodies are designed to be adapted and changed to fit in with what you like eating!
