Add pork and stir to coat.
Stir in 1 1/2 teaspoons of the oil.
Let marinate for 15 minutes.
Cut onions into 1 1/2-inch lengths; then cut lengthwise into shreds.
Reserve half the onion shreds for cooking; set other half aside to offer at the table.
In a bowl, lightly beat eggs with salt.
Heat a wok or 10- to 12-inch frying pan over medium-high heat.
When pan is hot, add 1 tablespoon of the oil.
When oil is hot, add eggs and cook, stirring, until softly set; then slide out of pan.
Pour remaining 2 tablespoons oil into pan and increase heat to high.
When oil is hot, add ginger and stir once.
Add pork mixture and stir until lightly browned, about 4 minutes.
