That's the amount of money I spent on my car this month...
Two break roters..water pump...battery...those are not even that expensive,
At least half of that $1000 goes to labor...
Arghhh I'm stressed...
I need foood food FOOOOOOODDDDD!
1 lb of pork belly (sliced)
1 box of stewed bean curd 豆干 (sliced)
1 stalk of scallion (chop into 2 inches in length)
1 teaspoon of Sichuan pepper (grinded)
1 teaspoon of grated ginger
1 tablespoon of spicy bean paste 辣豆瓣醬
3 teaspoons of fermented flour paste 甜麵醬
2 teaspoons of sugar
Extra virgin olive oil
Drizzle some olive oil in the skillet,
Toss in chopped scallions and cook for about 1 minute,
Pour the pork slices in after the oil turned sizzling hot,
When the pork slices are semi-cooked, transfer them to another plate.
Using the same oil in the skillet,
Add grated ginger, spicy bean pastes, grinded Sichuan pepper, fermented flour paste, sugar, and cook till the aroma comes out,
This should take less than 10 seconds.
Add the sliced bean curd and cook till it turned slightly brown color (from absorbing the sauce).
It's time to pour the pork slices back in,
Now you know why this dish is called "double cooked."
Give it a quick stir, let the meat absorb the sauce for a little bit too,
Drizzle a tiny bit of sesame oil over it,
I can eat at least two bowls of rice with this dish,
Food makes me happy,
Let's hope that this double cooked pork can ease my pain from staring at the skinny wallet on the table.
Time to dig in!
