I love pork and all its products but unfortunately its not that healthy. Now I have been seeing sugar snap peas in many recipes out there and I had never tried making these neither have I ever eaten them so last time I was at City Park Market I asked around for them. Turns out they are a lot like snow peas only that they have larger “peas” inside them so they are not as flat. So I bought a small bunch of them and when I was making pork I decided to add them in so as to make the meal healthier 🙂
I enjoyed the flavour of the pork, slightly hot and sweet and the peas were nice. Different but tasty. I think they mostly take the flavour of whatever it is you have cooked. I hope you will like it. Oooh I adopted this recipe from the Gatronomes Guide and the Haffington post. HAPPY COOKING!!

If you do not have the fish and oyster sauce you can increase the amount of soy sauce but the flavour is not quite the same
