Pork with shrimp and shitake mushrooms is a simple and delicious recipe. It can be cooked in about 40 minutes. The root of the dish is Asian. You can use just about any cut of pork in the recipe – pork shoulder, pork belly, etc. Fresh shrimp is critical to a good outcome. I like to use medium size prawns. If you’re not a fan of shitake mushrooms, you can use button mushrooms. Shitake mushrooms a nice touch because they cook down a little slower and are a little firmer.
