An easy dish to make after coming home from a hard day’s of work. Using broccoli would have made the dish look prettier but I could not be bothered walking to the supermarket so cauli it is instead!

Ingredients (feeds 5 to 6)
750 g pork fillet – sliced thinly
¼ head of cauliflower or broccoli
1 ½ tbsp salted black beans – washed and chopped coarsely
1 tbsp dark soy sauce*
1 tbsp light soy sauce*
1 heaped tbsp chilli bean sauce*
1 tsp sugar*
1 tsp corn flour*
3 to 4 cloves garlic – chopped
3 to 4 bird’s eye or 2 red chillies – sliced thinly
Veg oil

Combine * in a bowl with ¼ cup of water. Blanch the veg in boiling water for a min. Drain and set aside.

Heat a wok with sufficient oil. Fry the pork in batches until brown. Remove and set aside.

Retain about 1 to 2 tbsp of the oil and fry the garlic and the black bean for 15 secs. Stir in the sauce mixture and chillies and cook until the mixture boils and thickens. Return the pork to the wok, mix well to cover and add in the veg. Mix well again and until the veg is heated through. Serve hot with rice and veg such as STIR FRIED CHOY SUM WITH TOFU AND OYSTER SAUCE.
