Serving Size:    4
Preparation Time:    0:30

Ingredients
2 tablespoons    vegetable oil
1 tablespoon    garlic,    coarsely chopped
1/4 pound    pork,    thinly sliced
1/2 cup    ginger,    long, thin strips

Heat a wok or a large, deep skillet over medium-high heat until hot.  Add the oil and swirl to coat the surface.  When the oil is very hot, add the garlic and toss until it begins to turn golden, about 15 seconds.  Add the pork and stir-fry until it is no longer pink, about 2 minutes.

Add the ginger and toss to coat with the oil.  Let it cook about 1 minute and then add the onion and fish sauce and toss to mix them in.  Add the mushrooms and soy sauce and stir-fry until mushrooms have softened and ary shiny, about 1 minute.  Add the chilies, water, and sugar and toss well.  Cook without stirring for 1 minute.  Transfer to a serving platter and serve hot.

Notes:    Chicken may be substituted for the pork.
