Okra Pork Stir-Fry (秋葵炒豬肉片)

Not a big fan of okra but once in a blue moon I still try to cook it just for a more balanced diet. There's one time though, I had okra used in Southern soup dish back in New Orleans. Well, turtle meat was also involved. Might not sound as appetizing but the soup was pretty comforting and delicious. Before I figure out how to get turtle meat to recreate that dish, here's a more friendly version of okra recipe.

Okra pork stir-fry (秋葵炒豬肉片) -


  • 20 okra
  • 135 grams pork slices
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 tablespoons white sesame oil
  • Some toasted white sesame seeds

Sauce -

  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon mirin
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Chinese cooking wine


Destem the okra and slice diagonally. Peel and finely chop the garlic cloves. Mix all the ingredients under the "sauce" section, make sure the sugar has been fully dissolved.

Drizzle some white sesame oil to the pan and turn to medium high heat. Add in garlic and sear till aromatic but not burnt. Transfer pork slices over and stir-fry till about half cooked through.

Add in okra and give it a quick stir. 

Pour in pre-mixed sauce and bring to a boil. Once boiling, lower the heat a little and cook till nearly reduced completely. Do keep a tiny bit of juice though, slightly moist is good.

Plate and garnish with toasted white sesame seeds.

Now, where can I find turtle meat?
