SAVOURY WOOD EAR FUNGUS RED DATES SOUP

Prepared this simple soup for two with ingredients mostly available in my kitchen.  I believe most Chinese kitchen would have them too.
This is a healthy soup with wood ear fungus [known to help to reduce cholesterol, improves blood circulation and lower blood pressure] and red dates [rich in vitamins, antioxidants and minerals etc].   Though there is pork but it is lean pork meat.
Recipe adapted from Christine's Recipes 
Ingredients
[serves 2]
10 gm wood ear fungus - soaked to soften and cut strips
9 red dates 
a few slices ginger
100 gm lean pork - sliced and marinate with some pepper, light soy sauce, cooking wine and cornstarch
750  ml water
