It's been almost one week since I arrived in Taiwan,
My parents are really taking good care of me,
Not sure about other families, but to mine, that involves a lot of feeding...
Don't get me wrong,
Feeding is good, especially everything's homemade and childhood favorite dishes,
But man oh man, how much I miss cooking and messing around the kitchen.
Luckily, I finally got my cooking time back yesterday,
My dad got tons of Matsusaka pork slices for friends and business partners,
6 of that high pile of meat containers went into my fridge,
30 slices of Matsusaka pork slices
2 garlic cloves
1 stalk of scallion
1 tablespoon of black bean soy sauce
1 teaspoon of chili sauce
(*not the paste kind, preferably with some fine grounded Szechuan peppercorn)
Little olive oil
Here're my beautiful Matsusaka pork slices -
The texture is on the chewy side once you cooked it,
But it's tender at the same time due to its high fat content.
I've decided to go light on the seasoning so I get more taste from the meat,
Here's how I did it,
Drizzle some olive oil in the pan and turn to medium high heat,
Just a little bit of oil is fine since the meat is so fat.
Toss in peeled and sliced garlic, sprinkle a little bit of salt,
Cook till the garlic just about to get burned,
Add in pork slices, soy sauce, chili sauce, and chopped scallion,
Cook till the sauce is fully absorbed by the pork.
All 30 slices, finished in 6 minutes, by myself.
That's life \( ^ _.^ )/
