Stir-Fried Pork with Spring Onions Recipe

Stir-Fried Pork with Spring Onions

Rating 4-5 out of 5 - Most cooks definitely will make this recipe again

Recipe by  

Stir-Fried Pork with Spring Onions is a simple dish from southern China. The key to its success is to not overcook the pork, so speed is of the essence. This dish has a wonderful flavor all on its own, but you can add more vegatables if you wish. I sometimes add sugar snap peas, water chesnuts, and grated carrots.

to serve 4:
1 lb
boneless, lean pork
2 teaspoons
dry sherry or rice wine
2 teaspoons
light soy sauce
½ teaspoon
cornflour (cornstarch or wheat starch)
spring onions (a.k.a. scallions or salad onions)
2 teaspoons
½ teaspoon
½ teaspoon


How to Cook Stir-Fried Pork with Spring Onions

  1. Cut the pork into thin slices about 2" (5cm) long. Place the slices in a bowl and mix in the dry sherry or rice wine, the soy sauce and the corn flour. Let the mixture sit for 10-15 minutes so that the pork absorbs the flavours of the marinade. Meanwhile, cut the spring onions on the diagonal into 2" (5cm) lengths.
  2. Heat a wok or frying pan (skillet) to a very high heat. Add the oil and, when it is almost beginning to smoke, add the pork slices and stir fry them until they are just brown (2-3 minutes maximum). Add the spring onions, salt and sugar then continue to stir fry until the pork is cooked and slightly firm (about 4-5 minutes depending on the thickness that you have cut the pork). Remove and arrange the pork on a warm serving dish. Pour over any juices and serve at once with Chinese Fried Rice.

If you use a wok, remember that you should never scrub it or use detergent on it. Just wash or rinse in plain water and dry it thoroughly by placing over a low heat for a few minutes before putting it away. When using a wok to cook several dishes, just wipe with kitchen paper between dishes.
