Recipe - Stir Fry Lean Pork With Ginger

This is a quick and easy stir fry recipe that goes very well with rice. Lean pork provides the protein the body needs without the fat. Lean pork has important nutrients like B vitamins (niacin, thiamin, riboflavin and B6), which helps the body's metabolism and red blood cell formation. Iron, found particularly in red meat, helps maintain energy and carry oxygen through the bloodstream. It also has magnesium which is vital for building bones and zinc which is essential for our immune system.

I use frozen lean pork which comes in convenient pack of 250 grams and are already cut thinly. That saves a lot of effort and time.

250 grams of lean pork
1 inch ginger, slice thinly
1 onion, finely chopped
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 stalk of spring onion, cut
1 tbs of oil for frying

yellow capsicum
Marinade ingredients:
1 tsp oyster sauce
1 tsp light soy
1 tsp dark soy
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp conrstarch
Dash of pepper powder
Few drops of sesame oil

Vegetable - I use one yellow capsicum, cut into bite size

Mix the pork with the marinade and let the mixture sit for 15 minutes in the fridge.

In a wok or pan, heat the oil on medium.
Toss in the garlic, onion and ginger and fry till fragrant.
Toss in the marinated pork and stir for about 3 minutes.
Toss  in the capsicum and spring onion and stir fry for 2 more minutes.
Add a little water for some gravy or sauce.
The dish should be done.

In this 5 minute video, pineapple is added to this dish. Nice idea.
