2 ml (1/2 tsp) salt

2 ml (1/2 tsp) cracked black pepper

15 ml (1 tbsp) vegetable oil

6 cloves garlic, minced

15 ml (1 tbsp) minced fresh ginger root

8 green onions, cut into 2.5-cm (1-inch) pieces, white and green parts separated

30 ml (2 tbsp) rice vinegar

50 ml (1/4 cup) hoisin sauce

In a large non-stick skillet or wok, heat oil over medium-high heat; brown pork, tossing often, for about 3 minutes. Add garlic, ginger and the white parts of the green onions; cook for 1 minute. Stir in vinegar and cook until it evaporates, about 30 seconds. Transfer pork mixture to a plate.
