Sauce: In bowl, whisk together chicken stock, oyster sauce, sesame seeds, cornstarch and sesame oil; set aside.

Main Ingredients: In large wok or skillet, heat 1 tbsp of the vegetable oil over high heat; stir-fry pork in 2 batches, until browned, adding more oil if necessary, about 4 minutes per batch. Using slotted spoon, transfer to bowl.

Add remaining vegetable oil, onion, garlic and gingerroot to wok. Stir-fry over medium heat until fragrant, about 1 minute.

Vegetables: Add cabbage, carrots and stock; cover and steam until tender-crisp, 3 to 5 minutes. Return pork to pan. Pour in sauce; cook, stirring, until glossy and thickened, about 4 minutes. Sprinkle with green onion.
