Pork with Curry Sauce

Winnie is another talented cook in the South Arm Community Kitchen. Her dishes are usually very elaborate and involve lots of chopping, dicing and slicing.

Winne made three dishes in South Arm’s cooking club meeting. She intended to make four dishes but we do not have enough time for the fourth dish. The three dishes are:

  • Pork with Curry Sauce
  • Vegetarian Tempura
  • Whole Wheat Pancake


The main dish is Pork with Curry Sauce. Winnie made a huge pot and everyone got some to bring home for the family to try. If you like spicy food, you should try this out. Instead of just cooking the pork, she takes the trouble to deep fry the pork. This gives the meat that extra crunch.


  • 1 lb pork, cubed
  • 2 cups diced onions
  • 2 lbs potatoes, cut into chunks
  • 1/2 cup sliced carrot
  • 1/2 cup yellow pepper
  • 1/2 cup red pepper
  • 1 cup bean curd stick, soak in water to soften
  • 3 tablespoons curry powder
  • 1 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 5 cups cold water


  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • a teaspoon garlic powder
  • a teaspoon Chinkiang vinegar
  • a teaspoon Salt-baked chicken seasoning (optional)

    That’s a very involved cooking process. How did the final dish taste?

    Hi Chubbypanda,

    The curry sauce has a mild curry taste. It’s good for those who can’t take spicy food. I would prefer it to be more spicier.
