3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 small yellow onion, halved and thinly sliced
1 to 1 1/4 lbs. boneless pork butt, trimmed of excess fat and cut into thin strips about 2 in. long and 1/2 in. thick

2 teaspoons molasses
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon white pepper


1. Heat a wok or large frying pan over high heat. Add oil and swirl wok to coat. Cook onion, stirring often, until starting to brown, about 2 minutes. Add pork and cook, stirring as needed, until browned, about 15 minutes.
