京醬肉絲 (Pork Stir Fried with Sweet Bean Sauce)

Stir fried pork “threads” with sweet bean sauce is a super easy stir fry dish to make. Al you have to do is track down some 甜麵醬(tian mian jiang, sweet bean paste), which shouldn’t be too hard. It has a wonderful salty sweet, slightly pungent flavor paired with a bit of zing from the onions. What I truly like about most chinese dishes like this one is the sparing/conservative use of meat. I consider this a great plus not just from an environmental standpoint, but also an economical one (and probably health as well). However, for this particular one you may need a breath mint afterwards.

Ingredients:

  • 12 oz. lean pork cut into fine strips
  • 4-6 spring onions shredded
  • 1/2 c. oil for frying

Seasoning 1

  • 1/2 T rice wine
  • 1 T soy sauce
  • 1 T corn starch
  • 1 T water

Seasoning 2

  • 1 1/2 T sweet bean paste 甜麵醬
  • 1/2 T rice wine
  • 1 T soy sauce
  • 1 t sesame oil
  • 2 t sugar
  • 1/2 t cornstarch

Method:

  1. Soak shredded green onions in water for 5 minutes. Add Seasoning 1 to sliced pork, marinate for 10 minutes. Add 2 T of oil to pork and mix in so meat will separate when frying.
  2. Heat wok and 1/2 cup of oil until hot. Stir fry the meat until cooked. Remove the meat from the wok. Remove the oil from the wok. Add 1 T of oil to the wok and stir frySeasoning 2 until fragrant. Return the meat to the wok. Stir fry until coated.
  3. Line a plate with the onions. Place the meat on top of the onions. Serve, mix and eat.
