2" long. Marinate with soy sauce, sherry & sugar for 15 minutes. Peel
cucumber; slice in half the long way & remove seeds; slice in strips to
match pork; marinate in salt water for 15 minutes.

about 1 minute until shrivelled. Remove pork from wok; wash wok.

Reheat wok until very hot; add remaining oil. Drain cucumber. When oil
just begins to smoke, add cucumber and stir-fry rapidly until heated
through - about 30 seconds. Add pork & garlic; stir briefly; add stock.
Bring stock to boil; then stir in enough cornstarch paste to make a light
gravy. Bring sauce to boil. Serve.
