Prosperity Pork with Pine Nuts


by: Blackswan

This dish is one of our usual home-made meals, either taken with porridge or rice. Only difference this time: I’d added pine nuts & cut up some red & green Capsicums (bell peppers) to make flowers/leaves for decoration since it was for my Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner, & gave it a nice name to impress my guests.
