Chinese Garlic Pork


Garlic is a versatile vegetable, and is also described as having many healthy properties. This recipe can be adapted to use other ingredients, with scallops, prawn and pork all being suitable.

Cooking Method

Slice the pork and cut into bite-sized pieces. Dice the bell pepper. Finely chop the garlic. Mix the soy sauce, oyster sauce, and rice wine (you can use sherry as a substitute). Mix corn flour with cold water in a separate container and have all the ingredients ready before starting to cook.

Heat wok, add sunflower oil and swirl to spread oil. Turn down to low heat and stir-fry garlic for a few seconds. Do not let it brown or it will taste bitter.

Increase heat, add bell pepper and stir-fry for one minute. Add pork meat and stir-fry for 30 seconds. Pour in the mixed seasonings, stir in the corn flour mixture very slowly, stirring until the sauce begins to boil and thickens. Sprinkle sesame oil over the food, garnish with coriander and serve immediately with rice.
