An Easy Hot Dish in 15 Minutes - Ground Pork with Kernel Corn

Looking for a quick-and-easy dish that no washing and no cutting works (except chopping the green onions) are needed? Then this is the one that doesn't need much preparation work except opening a can of Whole Kernel Corn.  How hard can that be?  You can have this tasty dish served in 10 minutes, and guess what?  Everybody would love it.

1/2 lb. ground pork
15-1/4 oz. can whole kernel corn, water drained
4 dried red peppers
1 chopped green onion (optional)

2 tablespoons oil
1-1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon sugar
1 tablespoon wine
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup water

1. Heat the oil to hot in wok, stir-fry the dried red peppers (Tip 1) until they turn black.
2. Add ground pork and stir-fry until cooked.  Add soy sauce, sugar, wine, then bring to boil; reduce heat to medium, cover and cook 3 minutes.
3. Add kernel corns, water and salt, stir-fry to mix well, bring to boil, reduce heat to medium low and cook for 5 minutes.  Sprinkle with green onions, mix, remove and serve.

Tip 1: If the dried red peppers are cook whole, the spiciness is mild.  If a spicier taste is preferred, cut one, or two, or all red peppers in half before stir-fry them, then it can be a very spicy hot dish.
