Stir-fried Leeks with Roast Pork and Bean Curd

Wash the crevices between the leek leaves thoroughly, as there is soil trapped in between the leaves. One way to clean them is to slice them half lengthwise, and after washing thoroughly, pat dry with kitchen paper towels and slice accordingly.

Serves: 2

Prep Time: 15 mins

Cook Time: 15 mins


  •  200g Chinese leeks sliced diagonally to 5cm lengths & separate stalks from leaves
  • 1 tbsp cooking oil
  • 4 cloves garlic peeled and finely chopped
  • 1/2 carrot peeled and sliced thinly
  • 100g fried beancurd (tau twa) sliced to bite-sized pieces
  • 1 tsp oyster sauce
  • 1/2 tbsp fish sauce (or substitute with light soy sauce)
  • 100g roasted pork/siu yuk store-bought or home-made; sliced to 1 cm width
  • 1 tbsp Chinese wine


  1. Heat oil in wok. Stir fry garlic for about 30 seconds. Add leeks (the white portion) and carrot. Stir fry for about 1 minute over high heat.
  2. Add fried beancurd, oyster sauce and fish sauce. Stir fry for another 1-2 minutes, or until the leeks are softened.
  3. Add the remaining leeks (leaves) and roasted pork to the wok. Stir fry briefly until the leaves are cooked. Drizzle Chinese wine along the sides of the wok and the wine evaporate seconds later (you'll smell the aroma) before you turn off the stove.

    Another dish I tried, second attempt to cook in my life! The dish turned out soggy wonder if it’s the leek? And my roasted pork taste bitter on skin! I think I added too much Chinese wine. How come mine is so wet? Help! Need to practice more. This is mild dish too :( I messed it

      I’m not sure why it is soggy, did you dry the vegetables before stir frying or measure the amount of ingredients (instead of estimation)? I’m also not sure why the roasted pork taste bitter, it should taste as it is when you bought it. If it is too mild, you can season it to taste (e.g. more salt)

    Can we add water during frying , at what stage, and would this cause the lost of aroma of the wine at the end?
    Thank you

      Hi, yes you can eat water or chicken stock during the stir-frying. Add the wine at the very end of cooking, you won’t lose the flavour.
