Leek & Pork Stirfry

This post should have been written months ago during the Lunar New Year season. Reason being this dish is always on the table at the annual family reunion dinner. ‘Leek’ in Mandarin is suan, which sounds just like the equivalent of the word ‘count’. In essence, it’s an auspicious dish to consume during the festival celebrating luck and prosperity. That aside, leek and pork is a lovely combination.

  1. Cut up the vegetable to thin slices, diagonally. Separating them to loose strands gently.
  2. Do the same with a carrot, or pass it through the coarse side of a grater.
  3. Prepare the pork this way.
  4. In a hot skillet with a tablespoon of vegetable oil, toss in minced garlic and fry till fragrant.
  5. Add in the vegetables and fry about with a small splash of water. Lower the heat.
  6. When the leek is almost completely softened, add in the pork.
  7. Turn up the heat and stirfry everything together by adding water in small quantities, frying till dry-ish each time.
  8. Adjust seasoning accordingly with light soy sauce.
  9. Serve with hot steamed rice.
