*Look for this at a Chinese or a Korean Market. No substitutes! 1. Cut the
pork into small pieces. Mariate in soy sauce, rice wine, ginger, and
garlic. Set aside. If using shrimp, shell, devein and salt lightly. Set

aside. 2. In a wok, over high heat, stir fry the onion and zucchini.
Depending on the size of the wok, you might have to do it in batches.
Remove and set aside. 3. Heat the shortening or oil in the wok. The amount
varies, depending upon the amount of the black bean paste, but don't be too
stingy with the oil. Dump the paste in the wok, stirring quickly to avoid
burning. Stir for approximately 2 -3 minutes. 4. Add the pork and stir fry
till it is cooked, approximately 1 - 2 minutes.
