Wow!. This is the best stir fry sauce recipe for this month because it is cold. In fact after I saw your recipe, I shared it to my friends and they loved it. Thank you for sharing this with us.

Bean curd is the tofu. Calls for a small tub.

Can I make this in the crockpot? If so how would I do it?

I am unfamiliar if it will taste the same on a crock pot, but if you are interest in trying you can.
1. cook the pork seperately
2. add the remaining ingredients (except corn starch) in the crock pot and start the heating process.
3. add the cooked pork in the crock pot
4. once the pork and soup are mixed well and heated, mix in the cornstarch to add some thickness to the soup.

Hope that helps!

Would you scramble the egg first? or just use the whites?
