1 ½ T rice vinegar

Make the sauce:
In a bowl, combine all the sauce ingredients.
Make the filling:
In a bowl, mix 2 T of the sauce into the ground pork.
In a skillet, heat 2 T of the vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Add pork and cook, breaking meat up with a spoon, until browned. Transfer meat to a plate and set aside.
Add the remaining 1 T oil to the skillet, then add scallion whites, garlic, and ginger and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Return pork to skillet, then add water chestnuts, bell pepper, and the rest of the sauce and cook, stirring, until cooked through and the liquid has reduced and thickened slightly, 3 to 4 minutes.
