Slice the pork into strips and sprinkle with a small amount of each of salt and pepper. Cut the ginger into fairly thin strips. Remove the tough fibers along the lengths of the snap peas.
Preheat a frying pan with 2 tsp of vegetable oil and preheat over medium heat, Add the pork and ginger and stir-fry.
When the pork begins to brown, add the snap peas and 1 tbsp of sake, then cover and let steam-fry for about 30 sec.
Remove the lid and add the [A]. Cook off the moisture and let the sauce thicken to coat.
How to cut the pork into stripes: place the pork horizontally on a cutting board and cut diagonally against the grain so you can have longer stripes. This also cuts the tough tendons and make it easier to eat.
