Peel shrimp, and devein, if desired.

Position knife blade in food processor bowl; add pork. Process until coarsely chopped. Add shrimp, and process until mixture is finely chopped.

Cook meat mixture and garlic in oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat 5 minutes, stirring until pork crumbles and shrimp turn pink.
