Potato and Pork Stir-fry

   

Potato and Pork Stir-Fry

Check Out: Ginger and Scallions Chicken

This is an easy and humble home-style dish (家常菜) which I totally enjoy with steamed rice (yes, double carbs!). The ingredients are cheap (about S$2) and really basic – one potato, half cup frozen peas, garlic and onion. It is also nutritious and easy to cook. Even though I name it a “stir-fry”, it is also much like a simple stew whereby the potatoes and pork are simmered for about 10 minutes in the braising sauce. This recipe is really flexible and you can adjust the taste and consistency of the sauce along the way with hot water and seasoning sauces.

Stir to coat everything evenly in the sauce, then cover with lid and simmer for 10 minutes, adding the thawed vegetables half way through cooking time. Add hot water any time the simmering sauce runs dry. Season to taste and garnish with coriander before serving.

    Hi Wiffy,

    I love your cooking style and great photos!
    We cook a variation of this dish nearly every week…the difference is that our potatoes, carrots and pork are cut into small cubes.
    We omit the fish sauce and use Kicap Manis (Malay style) instead of dark soy sauce.
