Pork Jowl Stirfry with Green Bean

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
