I love Asian flavors and have been making Asian dishes at home at least once a week for a few years. Once I got over my fear of trying to cook Asian food that is and realized just how simple it really was. Most of the dishes I cook are beef dishes that I have substituted with chicken since I try not to cook with red meat as much as possible. I decided I wanted to start making some pork dishes as well and this is one I came up with.

  2. Heat pan back up and add a bit more olive oil and sear minced garlic and ginger for about 1 minute. Add hoisin, plum sauce, soy sauce, honey, sherry, sesame oil, sugar and red pepper flakes if you like it a bit spicy. Let simmer for at least five minutes. Turn off and stir in onions.
