Stir-fried Leeks with Roast Pork and Bean Curd

Stir-fry Leeks Recipe

Today is the 15th day of Chinese New Year, also known as Yuan Xiao Festival (元宵节) or Lantern Festival. This day is also the Chinese version of Valentine’s Day, and marks the end of the Chinese New Year festivities. It’s a great day to eat leeks, an auspicious food for Chinese New Year because the character “蒜” in its Chinese name (蒜苗/大蒜) sounds like calculating (“算”) in Mandarin, symbolizing wealth. In this recipe, I stir-fry leeks with roast pork, a winning combination I saw at my friend’s Pablo blog.

The natural saltiness of the roast pork flavours the dish and complements the leeks well. I added tau kwa (deep fried bean curd) and carrots for a more complete meal. The result was good and a hit with my family.

Whether I make my own roast pork (siu yuk) or buy it ready-made from the market, I always plan for leftovers the next day to cook this dish. In this way, I got two meals figured out.

    Good! 你还在算$啊!:D I don’t remember having this dish often though – maybe just once or twice so far ..quite strange right?

    Oh yup! Esp with the roast meat.. did u use the sauce that they often provide as well to the meat?

    For some reason, tao kua and leeks always go so well together as well.
