Stir-Fried Pork and Onion with Vinegar Sauce

Stir-Fried Pork and Onion with Vinegar Sauce

It's refreshing with vinegar and whets your appetite.
The allysine compound from the onion helps the absorption of Vitamin B1 from the pork, and helps recovery from exhaustion. It also increases your stamina.
