A Bowl of Fragrance

Hi! I know it’s been a while. Two words: Differential Equations. Also, there just hasn’t been much going on in our kitchen

Well, my dad decided to try something new yesterday.

A Bowl of Fragrance (一碗香)is a classic Hunanese comfort dish. Enjoy!

A Bowl of Fragrance

Ingredients

  • 5-6oz pork loin, sliced
  • 2 large or 3 medium jalapeños, roughly chopped
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 3-4 cloves of garlic
  • 6-9tbsp oil, divided
  • 2-3 tbsp water
  • Ginger, sliced, to taste
  • Salt, to taste
  • 1-1.5tbsp soy sauce
  • 2tsp cooking wine

Directions

  1. In a wok over medium high heat, stir fry pork with salt in 2-3 tbsp oil for 20-30sec. Add cooking wine and continue stir frying for another 30-40 sec. The pork should be white from the outside but slightly pink inside. Remove from heat and set aside.
  2. Heat another 2-3 tbsp oil on high heat. Add garlic and ginger. When fragrant, add in the peppers and stir-fry for 2-2.5 min or until softened. Add chicken stock to prevent burning. Remove from heat and set aside
  3. Turn heat down to medium. Add the remaining oil into the wok and scramble eggs until the mixture holds shape, but slightly soft. Remove from heat and set aside.
  4. Turn heat back up to high. Reheat pork and pepper mixture for 1-2 min. Add in eggs and soy sauce. Stir fry for a another 30sec to 1 min or until eggs are well distributed in the mixture.
  5. Remove from heat. Serve and Enjoy!

Note: This is a great dish to make with any leftover stir fry. And, for real authenticity, throw in a spoonful or two of pickled chopped peppers!

I hope everyone has a great week! Until next time, bye!
