With a well stocked pantry, most Chinese recipes are easy to execute. The condiments I don’t have in the refrigerator, I have in the garden: ginger, scallions and celery.
Spicy Pork Tenderloin
1 pork tenderloin, cut into thin slices
1 egg white, beaten
1 tablespoon tapioca starch
½ teaspoon salt
¾ tsp. sugar
2 tsp. double dark soy sauce
1 tablespoon Shao-Hsing wine
2 tablespoons sweet bean sauce
1 tablespoon Lan Chi chili garlic paste (more or less to taste)
1 tsp. sesame oil
1 teaspoon sugar
1 tsp. vinegar
1 tbs. chopped ginger
1 tsp. chopped garlic
1 stalk celery
3 scallions diced.
1 tablespoon plain oil
1. Marinate pork with egg white, tapioca, salt and sugar.
2. Combine ingredients for sauce.
3. Heat a large skillet or wok over high flame. Add pork slices and cook until golden brown. Add garlic, ginger, and celery and stir fry for 1 minute.
4. Add sauce and continue cooking until pork is cooked through. It maybe be necessary to add a tablespoon of water or chicken stock if the sauce gets too thick. Add scallions
5. Serve with steamed rice and sautéed mustard greens.
