Here is another of my old favorites; I have been making this recipe since I was in college, Oh so long ago. If you like your food on the spicy side you will love it as written here. If you can’t take the heat it is easily tamed a bit. Personally I like to make mine hot and then cool it down with several nice cold beers.

2lbs Pork cut into 1.5-2 inch cubes

1 medium purple onion cut into slivers

1 Bell Pepper cored and cut into slivers

1 cup sliced Mushrooms (your choice of type)

3-4 Red Chilies cut in ½ inch pieces

3-4 Green Chilies cut into ½ inch pieces

1 cup Pork Broth (Beef can be used in a pinch)

1 pinch salt

1 pinch Black pepper

½ tsp Cayenne pepper ground

2 Tbs Olive oil (regular cooking oil can be used but is not best)

6 cups of cooked rice (Thai Jasmine Rice is best)

To start marinate the pork in a bowl with the Worcestershire sauce, salt, Cayenne pepper and Black pepper for ½ to 1 hour. I say longer is better. Next heat your oil, over a medium high heat, in a large pan and brown the meat. This should only take 3-4 minutes. Remove your pork from the pan leaving as much of the oil and drippings as possible. Next, add your onions, chilies, Bell peppers and cook stirring constantly for 1 minute, add your mushrooms and cook another minute. Now, add your broth and give a quick stir across the bottom of the pan to loosen any stuck bits. Bring your mix to a boil then lower your heat to a medium low and let simmer until mixture is reduced by about half.  Add your pork back to the pan, cover and simmer another 15 minutes or until pork is tender. Add salt and Black pepper to taste, if needed (I doubt it will be) and serve over your prepared rice.  Enjoy!
