Ingredients:

200 grams (0.44 lb) pork
25 grams (5/6 oz) green pepper
25 grams (5/6 oz) onion
2 grams (1/3 tsp) salt
15 grams (1 tbsp) cooking wine
50 grams (2 3/4 tbsp) ketchup
40 grams (3 tbsp) sugar
1 gram (1/4 tsp) MSG

25 grams (1 2/3 tbsp) water
2 cloves of garlic
200 grams (2/5 cup) cooking oil
1 egg
10 grams (1 1/2 tbsp) curry

Directions:
 
1. Cut the meat into slices 2 cm (0.8 inch) long, 3 cm (1.2 inches) wide and 0.5 (0.2 inch) thick. Add the salt and curry, and mix well. Add the egg and let marinate for 10 minutes. Then dust every piece of meat with the dry cornstarch.

2. Cut the green pepper and onion into dices 2 cm (0.8 inch) long each side. Mash the garlic.

4. Keep 50 g (3 1/2 tbsp) oil in the wok and heat it. Add the green pepper, onion, and mashed garlic, and stir-fry until they produce a strong aroma. Put in the ketchup, salt MSG, sugar, water, vinegar and meat to quick-fry. Mix well to allow the meat to become coated with the ketchup. Take out and serve.
