Original recipe makes 4



Beat egg white with cornstarch. Add shrimp, mix well, and refrigerate for at least 15 min or up to an hour. Stir-fry in 3 T oil just until done. Remove to a warming oven with a slotted spoon. In the same oil (if its not too yucky) brown the pork. Add next 8 ingredients. Bring to a boil and add cornstarch-water. Return to the boil and cook until thickened. Remove pan from heat and stir in the egg; fuss with the mixture so the egg becomes thin filaments rather than a big glob in the middle of the pan. Stir in the cooked shrimp and toss with the sauce. Serve immediately. You may substitute 1 1-1/2# steamed, cut-up lobster for the shrimp to make Lobster Cantonese (or Lobster in lobster sauce). This will serve 2-3.
