Pork Belly Stir Fry

On this particular day I was craving some authentic Asian food for dinner but I wasn’t in the mood for cooking. So I took my sweet time looking at Teahouse paper menu that we have at home and made my careful selection of dishes I wanted to order. I made a list and everything! Picked up my phone and called Teahouse and come to find that they’re closed on a Monday! Argh, was so looking forward to eating their food but what a let down.

I’m getting so sick and tired of eating frozen food packaged food. It just doesn’t hit the spot. So since I needed to go to the post office anyway, I figured I might as well make a stop at the local Asian grocery store.

So in these scenarios where I’m about to cook dinner, I let my cravings guide me to what I intuitively want to eat and I decided to make a pork belly stir fry. I decided to cook stir fry just because I needed to incorporate more veggies into my diet since all these packaged food were depriving me of quality fresh ingredients.

Directions:

  1. Over medium to high heat, drizzle vegetable oil into a wok or any deep casserole pan.

  3. Once the garlic has turned slightly golden brown, add the minced ginger and stir.
  4. Then add the onion and stir until the layers of the onions have separated.
  5. Next add the sliced pork belly and stir occasionally until halfway cooked.
  6. Add the Korean BBQ sauce, oyster sauce, and soy sauce, then stir until well combined.
  7. Add sliced carrots and red bell peppers and stir until cooked.
  8. Turn off the stove and then add kale, green onion, and cilantro and stir. The residual heat from the meat and other veggies will cook the green leafy veggies.
