Easy and quick stir-fried pork with peppers recipe, Chinese style! The pork is fried twice to remove excess moisture, giving it a tender, yet chewy texture.
Stir-fried pork with peppers is an absolutely flavourful stir-fry that goes well with plain, steamed jasmine rice. It is one of my family favourites and really easy to prepare. I find this a very convenient dish to put together, especially when I have leftover pork that isn’t quite enough to prepare as a main meat dish.
I found a really good cookbook, the only one in my collection that features the varied cuisines of China. Quite simply titled ‘Authentic Recipes from China’, the recipe contributors explain, that pork is ‘twice-cooked’ as it uses previously cooked leftover pork to prepare this dish, but naturally, fresh pork can also be used.
I like to prepare any stir-fried pork recipe using slightly marbled pork. That’s because I find that streaky pork or pork with slightly more fat will go a long way in terms of enhancing the flavour and texture of your stir-fries, and it always turns out fabulous! Cooking the pork several times is intended to remove all the moisture and gives the meat a distinctive texture.
