Rating: 4.6 stars based on 978 reviews


  • 1 pound pork or beef (don't use pork chops as they are too dry)
  • Pork Marinade:
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 - 2 teaspoons oyster sauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Pepper to taste
  • 1 piece (under 1 teaspoon) Cornstarch
  • Sauce:
  • 4 tablespoons water or chicken broth
  • 2 teaspoons oyster sauce
  • 3/4 to 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • Other:
  • 2 small bunches bok choy (can substitute broccoli if desired)
  • 1/2 cup bamboo shoots, rinsed
  • 1/2 pound fresh mushrooms, washed and patted dry with a paper towel
  • 1/2 cup water chestnuts (fresh if possible)
  • 1 large green pepper
  • 2 stalks celery
  • 1 onion
  • 1/2 pound snow peas (optional)
  • Oil for stir-frying


  • Cut the pork into thin strips.
  • Add seasonings to pork, adding the cornstarch last.
  • Marinate the pork for 10 - 15 minutes.
  • Whilst the pork is marinating, prepare vegetables and sauce.
  • For sauce:
  • Whisk together the sauce ingredients and set aside.
  • For vegetables:
  • Cut bamboo shoots into thin strips.
  • Slice the mushrooms and water chestnuts.
  • Cut the green pepper in half, remove the seeds and slice diagonally.
  • For the bok choy, separate each stalk and leaves.
  • Cut the stalk diagonally and cut the leaves across.
  • Cut the celery diagonally.
  • Cut the onion in half, peel, and slice thinly.
  • Place the vegetables on a large tray, being careful to keep each group separate (include the bok choy stalks and leaves), and set aside.
  • Heat wok and add oil.
  • When oil is ready, add the pork.
  • Stir-fry pork until redness is gone.
  • Remove and set aside.
  • Reheat wok and add more oil.
  • When oil is ready, stir-fry each of the vegetables.
  • The order doesn't matter, but you can stir-fry the onions and celery together, (if desired you can cook these with the pork), and the green pepper and snow peas together.
  • When cooking the bok choy, add the stalk first.
  • Add salt to taste as desired while stir-frying each group of vegetables.
  • Add water and cover wok while cooking bok choy, as it doesn't contain much moisture.
  • Reheat wok and add oil.
  • Give the sauce a quick re-stir.
  • Add and combine all the cooked ingredients in the wok.
  • Make a "well" in the center and gradually add the sauce, stirring to thicken.
  • Once it has boiled, remove the chop suey from the stove.
  • Serve hot.
