Add onion and garlic. Heat for 1-2 minutes to soften slightly. Add pork marinade mixture and cook for 5 minutes. Increase the heat, add snow peas and red pepper. Cook for 1-2 minutes.

The delicate flavour of this stirfry works well over angel hair pasta. *Chicken can easily be substituted for pork in this recipe if preferred.
