I use it for sweet and sour pork and any other Chinese pork dishes. I was originally going to make sweet and sour pork but things change and I needed something quicker. A stir fry is about as quick as you can get. The sweet and sour pork will have to wait for another day. Again I am using what I have in the fridge for the stir fry. Was going to get some bok choy but since I had a broccoli crown in the fridge it would work better. That’s the nice thing about stir fry you can use anything. Oyster sauce recipe I just think is the perfect paring with a pork stir fry. It’s also a great sauce with pan fried shrimp.

1/2 pork tenderloin 1/4 inch slices

1 clove garlic minced

1 teaspoon grated ginger

1/2 teaspoon soy sauce

1/2 teaspoon sherry

1/2 teaspoon sesame oil

1/2 teaspoon canola oil

1 teaspoon corn starch

Mix garlic, ginger, soy sauce, sherry, sesame oil, canola oil, and corn starch together well in a bowl. Add sliced pork, mix well and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

1 broccoli crown separated

1/2 onion sliced

1 carrot sliced diagonally

1 rib celery sliced diagonally

1/2 red pepper sliced (you can use any colour pepper, my wife likes red so I used red)

6 mushrooms sliced

2 cloves garlic sliced

4 green onions chopped

1/2 teaspoon sesame oil

1 teaspoon canola

1 tablespoon oyster sauce

salt and pepper to taste

Preheat frying pan on medium high heat, add canola oil. When oil is hot add the mushrooms and fry for 2 minutes. Add the onion, celery, and carrots, fry for 2 minutes. Add red pepper, and garlic, fry for 1 minute then add broccoli and fry for 1 minute and remove everything from the pan and reserve. Add the pork, fry for one minute to a minute and a half depending on thickness. Return everything back to the pan with the green onions and the oyster sauce. Fry for 1 minute sprinkle with sesame oil, mix and serve with rice or chow mien noodles.

    It’s a lovely piece of meat to use for stir fry. It’s also amazing for pork satay and pork souvlaki. Here’s a post with 4 ways of using it. 🙂

    Nicely done. All of your posts I’ve seen thus far, you seem to do a good job of cooking the vegetables just right. I’ve seen other blogs were green beans are cooked to death (for example).

      Thank you. I take care of them so they don’t over cook. With green beans I keep trying them until they are just right. Last night I sampled them 5 times before I drained them

      • Silk Cords says:

        I typically steam them myself. It’s easy to tell via the color when they’re done that way. 🙂

        Keep up the good work.

        I use the microwave for most vegetables. Frozen corn always in the microwave, frozen green beans I boil. Fresh vegetables, broccoli, brussel sprouts, cauliflower I microwave with a little butter no water at all. Fresh green or yellow beans I steam, asparagus I either steam or roast. I have also seen what you said about other sites, they seem to be making something to take a picture. That was my supper and I just took a picture of it. The picture wasn’t important my eating it was the important thing not the picture. It bugs my wife that I don’t try and make it pretty for the picture, simple answer to that is I am in a rush to eat it.
