I have a piece of the pork jowl left in my freezer. I decided to use it to stirfry with green beans for the vege dish for dinner. Ben’s requirement for dinner is a meat dish. a vegetable dish and a soup.
This is a very simple stirfry dish. You can use other meat like chicken to substitute the pork jowl.
- a slice of pork jowl, about 5 to 6 oz, thinly sliced
- a tablespoon light soy sauce
- a tablespoon oyster sauce
- a tablespoon rice wine
- a teaspoon sugar
- a drizzle of sesame oil
- a sprinkle of ground white pepper
- a teaspoon corn starch
- 3 cloves of garlic, minced
- salt to taste
- a bunch of green beans, trimmed both ends and sliced at an angle
- Marinate the pork jowl with the soy sauce, oyster sauce, rice wine, sugar and white pepper for at least 30 minutes
- Add cornstarch to the meat and blend well just before frying
- Heat a frying pan with a tablespoon of oil
- Saute garlic until fragrant
- Stir fry the marinated pork jowl for a few minutes or until almost cooked
- Add the green beans and stir fry to combine
- Add a few tablespoons of water and cover to simmer for another 5 minutes or until the green beans are tender.
- Add a pinch of salt to taste
- Serve with steamed rice
