    1. Marinate the pork with Shaoxing wine, salt, egg white and cornflour. Let sit for a few minutes.
    2. Mix together the ginger, a little bit of spring onions and water. Soak for a few minutes to make a ginger-onion liquid.
    3. Heat the oil in a wok until hot. Stir-fry the pork until it changes colour. Remove and reserve the oil.
    4. Heat the oil in the wok and stir-fry the sweet bean paste, ginger-onion liquid and sugar.
    5. Continue to cook until the sugar dissolves. Add the pork and stir to coat evenly with the sauce.
