Lobster Sauce

This is a sauce that I crave and I am not pregnant.

My Uncle Mario used to get Chinese takeout and share it with me when I was a little girl.

He was one of my favorite Uncles and this was his favorite meal.

1 1/3 pounds of ground pork

3 tablespoons vegetable oil or peanut oil

4 large minced garlic cloves

1 rounded teaspoon grated ginger

2 tablespoons rice wine or cooking sherry

2 cups low sodium chicken broth

2 teaspoons sesame oil

1/2 teaspoon sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

One cup frozen peas

3 tablespoons cornstarch mixed with 3 tablespoons water

One beaten egg

4 chopped scallions

Heat the 3 tablespoons of oil and add the ground pork.

Stir fry and break up the pork into small pieces.

Add the garlic, ginger, wine, chicken stock, sesame oil. sugar, salt and pepper.

Stir fry till the garlic and pork is cooked

Add the frozen peas and cook for another minute

Stir in the cornstarch mixture and cook on high until the sauce starts to thicken.

Add the egg and stir it into the mixture for one minute.

Adjust your salt now. If you want you can use soy sauce but your sauce will get dark.

Top with the scallions

I serve this over udon noodles but rice is also great.

It is delicious to add 1/2 pound of large shrimp while it is cooking.

If you really want to be indulgent add 1/2 pound of lobster meat just to justify the name of the meal.
