Stir Fried Pork Belly with Garlic Stem

Garlic stem is in season. It is 99cents for a bunch.

We cooked this Stir Fried Pork Belly with Garlic Stem as a side dish to go with steamed rice.


  • a bunch of garlic stem, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • half a pound of pork belly, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon mushroom seasonings
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar


In a frying pan on medium heat, add 1/2 teaspoon oil. Add the pork belly slices and pan fry until both sides are slightly caramelized.
Add minced garlic and stir fried for another 30 seconds or until fragrant.
Add garlic stem and stir so that the pork fat from the pork belly coats the garlic stem. You can add a little water and cover and cook for a couple of minutes until the garlic stem is tender.
Season with mushroom seasonings, soy sauce and sugar.

Serve hot with steamed rice.
