There has been a lot of pork recipes lately since we managed to get handsome supply of good quality pork belly and other leaner parts these past weeks. It is not easy to get fresh meat, so I am trying to cook as much as my favorite dishes as possible. Also I have a noticeably increased waistline for all these delicious fatty food! We didn’t gained any weight when we were little and had to finish up our big plate of rice till the final grain daily. But now, with only a little bit of rice every meal, I can feel my body expanding. This is unnatural. Bad carbs! But what would I do without rice? Can’t dare to imagine!
Another of my childhood favorite dish is juicy pork stir-fried with potato slices with thick gooey sweet sauce to go with the bowl of steamed rice. The pork is stir-fried over high heat to seal in the natural juices and simmered quickly to cook it through. Sounds easy and simple enough. Well, the best always is.
It is also important to work quickly, as most stir-fries dishes is. It requires you to be quick and hands-on. Keep tossing and moving the ingredients around the hot wok. The high sugar content (from the sugar and sweet sauces marinades) will cause them to burn fairly quickly.
I love these quick stir-fries dishes. I made a lot of sounds with the spatula and the wok, sounds like I actually know what I was doing. It certainly makes good impression if we have guests over!
