  • Using a vegetable peeler, remove the zest from tangelos, carefully cutting them in long strips.  Then cut the strips lengthwise at very thin pieces.  Then cut the tangelos into halves, and squeeze the juice from them to get at least ½ cup.Heat a large skillet or a wok at your western stove at medium high heat.  Pour in 2 teaspoons of oil, swirl to coat and then add the pork and cook them stirring until just cooked through enough, for approximately about 2 to 3 minutes only.  Transfer the pork to a clean plate and set aside.
  • Add the remaining 1 teaspoon of oil to the pan along with the shallots, garlic, ginger, crushed red pepper and the tangelo zest.  Continue cooking, stirring for another 1 minute.  Then add the bell peppers and celery and continue to cook, stirring constantly until they are tender crisp, for about 2 minutes.  At this point fragrance is already on the air.  Stir in the tangelo juice and soy sauce then bring to a simmer.  Cook for another 1 minute more.   
  • Whisk in the vinegar and cornstarch in a small bowl then pour it into the pan along with the pork and its juices.  Continue stir frying until the sauce starts to bubble while it thickens and the pork is cooked through for another 1 minute more.   
  • Serve while it is hot.  Great with steam cooked rice.
