Papain, the protein-splitting enzyme in papaya, keeps the body's connective tissue healthy and strong! The fruit is also a strong supplier of vitamins C, A and E, and contains a lot of magnesium, as well as other important minerals, trace elements, and secondary plant substances.
The oil in the wok has to be really hot so that the meat sears and browns well.
