Ginger Fried Pork: Ingredients
- Pork fillet
- Yellow pepper
- Soy sauce
- Sugar snap peas (or mangetout)
Peel and slice the carrots, ginger and garlic as thin as you possibly can. This may take a little bit of time if you are new to chopping, but it will be worth it.
Also slice up the yellow peppers and cut the sugar snap peas at an angle.
In a large frying pan or wok, fry the garlic and carrots off over a medium to high heat. You will want to keep them moving at all times so the garlic doesn’t burn. This should take about 1-2 minutes maximum.
Next, add in the pork which you should season with salt and pepper in advance.
Cook the pork until it starts to take on some colour, before adding the yellow peppers.
Cook for another minute until the peppers start to soften, before adding the soy sauce. Let this quickly steam off and coat all the ingredients.
At the very last moment, add in the sugar snap peas. You want to keep these super crunchy, so barely cook them for 10 seconds before whipping the pan off the heat.
Serve the dish up immediately.
