Asian pork with stir fried vegetables

on 06/05/2009

I made this a few days ago. This is a recipe from Bill Granger’s book: Every day. I think this is easy & lovely. I adapted it according to my taste.

I serve it with rice & some chopped unsalted peanuts. The peanuts give a bite to the dish.
Recipe: For 2 persons, with a bit of seconds
Ingredients:
2 tablespoons of peanut oil
250 gr pork fillet, cleaned & cut into strips or into little pieces
* For the sauce, that I use to marinate the pork pieces in:
2 tablespoons of rice wine
2 tablespoons of light soy sauce
2 teaspoons of sesame oil
2 teaspoons of brown caster sugar
*For the rest:
2 teaspoons of fresh ginger, peeled with a vegetable peeler, finely cut up or grated
1 teaspoon of cornflour ( cornstrach )
1 medium red bell pepper, cleaned, pits & white bits removed & cut into little pieces
1 medium green bell pepper, cleaned, pits & white bits removed & cut into little pieces
1 cucumber, washed, dried with kitchen paper, seeds removed & cut into little pieces
4 spring onions, cleaned & cut into little rings
* Serve with:
 brown or white rice
a handful of chopped unsalted peanuts
Method:
1. First make the marinade: Mix every ingredient for the marinade together & put it in a bowl. Place the pork pieces in it & place into the fridge. Let it marinate for 20 à 30 minutes.
2. Heat a wok onto high.  Pour 1 tablespoon of the peanut oil in it. Swirl it around into the wok. Lift the pork out of the marinade. Stir 1 teaspoon of cornstarch in the rest of the marinade. Stir until dissolved.
Stir fry the pork pieces for about 3 to 5 minutes until just cooked trough. Remove from the wok. Set aside.
3. Put the wok on medium. Add the rest of the peanut oil & when hot, add the ginger & the chopped spring onions. Stir fry for about 1 to 3 minutes. Now, add the cut up vegetables. Stir fry them for about 2 to 4 minutes. Then, add the pork & the sauce to the wok. Stir fry until it is all hot & just cooked trough.
4. Take your plate & serve with hot rice & some chopped unsalted peanuts over the top!
This is lovely enjoyed with a Singha Thai beer.

    This looks so good. I love peanuts in my chinese food. You could also add some chili peppers and make it a little spicy, which would be even better with Singha beer!

  17. Perfect for us! I love making meals like this during the week–I double the recipe and we have it twice…or I sent leftovers to school with my daughter for lunch. Thanks.

  22. Sophie,As always, your dish looks lovely.FYI: From what I found, the name snickerdoodle is either derived from German, or came from 18th century New England where they liked to name their cookies very fanciful names like Joe Frogger. I didn’t dig too deeply, but it is interesting!

  23. This looks wonderful. Cucumber is a great ingredient – people rarely expect it!

  24. I love the variety of food you post – always something that gives me ideas for what to make for dinner.

  36. Claudia says:

    What a fresh, gorgeous stir-fry! I can taste the marinade. Have never used cucumber in a stir fry – that will change. Beautiful photo. And Sophie, I do prefer Buffalo Mozzarella – when I can get it – it comes and goes in MN.
