10 minutes garlicky pork slices -
- 300 grams/0.7 lb pork slices
- 3 garlic cloves
- 2 red chilies
- 1 stalk scallion
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon black vinegar
- 1/2 tablespoon sesame oil
- 1/2 teaspoon chili sauce
- 1/8 teaspoon granulated sugar
- Some cilantro (optional)
Since the only main ingredient is pork, try to use quality pork slices with some fat throughout and avoid lean meat.
Peel and finely chop the garlic cloves. Trim off the chili stems and finely chop the remaining.
Bring a medium pot of water to a boil and shabu the pork slices. Once nearly cooked through, drain well and transfer to a serving dish. The remaining heat will finish cooking the pork.
Mix all the remaining ingredients except for the cilantro. Whisk till the sugar has been fully dissolved.
Drizzle the sauce all over pork slices and garnish with chopped cilantro if desired.
This pungent sauce also works well on seared fish fillet, but that defies the purpose of this no fuss cooking recipe. Try steamed chicken, use the dark meat of course, or even mix the sauce with plain noodles.
Step back, vampires!
