Spicy Pork with Vegetables (5 dollar meal challenge)

Spicy………..I think I am immune to spicy dishes now. Since I read an article on a book “the more spicy, the more healthy”. I almost cook every dish a bit spicy. Believe it or not, this dish is part of our 5 dollar meal challenge. I will start some calculations for you, 250 grams of pork here in NZ will cost you about $1.50 (6 dollar per kilo of pork if in special prize) and pork liver is maybe 30 cents for 100gms(3.00 dollar per kilo) and all of the ingredients below will cost you below 3 dollars. So in total: It’s a  dollar meal for 3-4 persons. (now I am sharing you some food costing, watch out for more)…………………..Did you know that mix vegetables such as carrots, corn and peas contains a very complete nutrition to provide our body the essential enzymes, vitamins and minerals. And did you know that carrots can boost your sexual dysfunction? It is believed to improve impotence (lower sexual drive) and even help improve night blindness, long-term cough (or call hundred days cough in Chinese medical prescription) besides strengthening kidney and eliminating excessive wind and cold in our body
