Stir-fry pork fillet with ginger and spring onions  ~   姜葱炒猪肉

Ingredients

  • 200 gm pork fillet, sliced
  • 1 tsp light soya sauce
  • 1/2 tsp oyster sauce
  • 3/4 tsp cornflour
  • 1/2 tsp sesame oil
  • 8 slices ginger
  • 2 pips garlic, chopped
  • 1 onion, cut into wedges
  • Spring onions
  • a pinch of salt
  • a pinch of sodium bicarbonate to tenderise the meat
  • Shaoxing wine to drizzle
Method
  1. Marinate the pork fillet with the sauces, salt, sesame oil, cornflour and sodium bicarbonate for a hour or more.
  2. Saute the chopped garlic with some oil, then toss in the ginger and fry till fragrant.  Add in the marinated pork and stir-fry.  Sprinkle some water to cook the meat, cover with lid.  Once the meat is cooked, toss in the spring onions and onion wedges.  Stir-fry and test for taste.
  3. Drizzle on some Shaoxing wine and turn off heat before dishing out onto a serving plate.
  4. Serve with rice.
Note :  Adding a pinch of sodium bicarbonate or baking soda to the meat will alkalise the meat's surface making it harder for the proteins to bond, hence the meat will be more tender when cooked.

Herbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Gao

H erbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Ga o literally translated means 'Tortoise Jelly' is one of my family's favourite desserts.  It's much more economical to prepare this at home for you'll need to fork out between Rm 9 to Rm 11 for a bowl of this cooling dessert in any of those herbal tea outlets.  This soothing jelly, served chilled, is supposed to be able to help reduce our body heat, helps to get rid of toxins and is believed to be good for the skin thus culminating a healthier complexion.
