  • Cut the pork in thin strips and then add the seasonings for the pork, but the cornstarch last.  Marinate them for 5 to 10 minutes. 
  • While the pork is marinating, you can prepare the vegetables and the stir fry sauce.  For the sauce; combine and stir together the sauce ingredients in a small mixing bowl and set aside for stir frying.
  • And for the veggies, start by cutting the bamboo shoots into thin strips.  Then you can slice the mushrooms and the water chestnuts next.  Then start cutting the green pepper in half, and remove the seeds and then slice them diagonally.  And for the bok choy, separate each stalk and leaves.  Then cut the stalk diagonally and then cut the leaves across.  After this, begin cutting the celery diagonally too.  Then slice the onion in half and peel the skin off and then slice them thinly.    Place the veggies in a large tray, being careful to keep each type separated from each other.  Include the bok choy and leaves too. 
  • Now we can start stir frying.  Heat your wok or a large skillet over medium high heat on you American stove.  Add oil and when oil is hot, add the pork.  Stir fry the pork until the redness is gone and remove and set aside.
  • Reheat your wok and add more oil.  When oil is hot,. Stir fry each of the veggies.  The order does not matter though, but you can stir fry the onions and celery together and the green pepper and snow peas together.  In cooking the bok choy, add the stalks first before the leaves.  The add salt to taste as desired while stir frying each veggies.  Also add water while cooking the bok choy and cover the wok, because it doesn’t contain much moisture. 
  • Lastly, add the pork together with the veggies and make a well in the center for the sauce to be combined.  Gradually add the sauce stirring to thicken.  Once it begins to boil, remove the choy suey from the stove and serve hot.
