This is other dish originated from the Szechuan Province.  The main staple of this dish is the Szechuan Pickled Vegetable ('Zha Cai') is a delicious and versatile ingredient which can be used in everything from stir-fries, to noodle soups, to congee (rice porridge), and more.  This "pickled vegetable" is essentially the swollen stem of a type of mustard plant that is salted, rubbed in chili spices, pressed and then preserved.  We mix the green and white onions into the heated wok, then add the cabbage, spices, and rice wine.  Stir fry the marinated julienne cut pork & preserved veggies into the mix.  This salty & savory dish is served with a light sauce and perfect over rice.
