My dad’s stir-fry roast pork is out of this world. It suits my palate so well that it remains my favorite after all this years. His stir-fry roast pork is sweet due to caramelized onions and sugar and aromatic due to garlic, sesame oil and Shaoxing wine. A bite will get you hooked forever! 😉 But beware this dish is oily, calories and cholesterol laden. Eat with no remorse and you’ll enjoy every bite of it! Hehe
Now we’re ready to wok!
Next add sliced roast pork and stir-fry in medium heat for about 2 minutes. Then add dark soy sauce, sugar and pepper. Stir-fry again until well-mix. Finally add Shaoxing wine, tapioca flour+water mixture and chopped spring onions. Mix well and plate. The tapioca flour+water mixture help to give shine to the dish. You may skip this step if you dislike it.
That’s it. Simple and easy.
