Outstation again and I’m calling it a day after hours of working on a new project. But before I take a shower and watch the season finale of CSI tonight at AXN Asia, lemme share this recipe; another variation of peapods stir-fry. (Yeah, I have all my food photos with me for blogging hehehehehe….) Not only a much simpler method than the one with cornstarch for a thicker sauce, this is also about meat and vegetables in its natural flavor you’re gonna love even the crunchy onion slices.
Lean pork, sliced into thin strips (beef is better, actually)
5 tbsp of soy sauce
Salt & pepper
Combine soy sauce, a dash of salt and pepper in a mixing bowl. Stir in the strips of pork. Cover and let stand for at least 30 minutes or while preparing the other ingredients.
Heat oil in a wok over medium heat and fry garlic until aromatic. Throw in half of the onion slices and stir-fry for a minute. Add in the peapods and the remaining onion and stir-fry for half a minute. Add about 1/2 cup of water (or more as desired), season with salt and pepper, and cook until peapods and the 2nd batch of onions are al dente. Transfer to a serving platter.
Add oil to the wok; heat until smoking hot. Throw in the pork strips and brown, stir-frying for about 2 minutes or so until cooked through. Serve immediately with the cooked vegetables. Yummy!
