  • ½ ladle chicken stock

  • ½ tsp. Dark soy sauce

Cooking

  • Heat 1 tbsp. vegetable oil in a wok to high heat and once smoking hot, add the minced pork into the wok. Press into the pork and sear well, before then starting to separate and cut into the meat with a ladle or spatula. Stir fry for 2-3 minutes until well browned and then remove form the wok.

  • Heat another tbsp. vegetable oil in a wok to a medium-high heat and add your garlic, ginger, fermented black beans, red pepper and chillies into the wok one at a time, stir frying for 30 seconds in between each addition.

  • Turn the heat up to a high heat and then bring the mince pork back into the wok and add the Chinese chives and stir fry for a further minute. Ensure the wok is smoking hot and then pour ‘The Sauce’ into the wok and bring to a vigorous boil. Continue stir frying until there is no sauce left in the bottom of the wok.

  • Enjoy hot, perfect with steamed rice.
