Stir-Fried Roasted Pork with Garlic (蒜香爆烧肉)

I mentioned this Stir Fried Roasted Pork - bao-siu-yuk (爆烧肉) before in my Long Bean Flavorful Mixed Rice post earlier. It is the same thing. But since today I'm cooking this again, I really can't help posting it again. This time, it's more garlicky, which I like it alot.

With this flavorful dish alone, I can finish a big bowl of rice! My love for this dish has developed since young. I spent my childhood time living in Kampar, a small town that takes about 25 to 30mins drive away from Ipoh Town. When it comes to festive seasons, or whoever is getting married, we definitely will have a big portion of roasted pork lying on the dining table. 

On the 1st day, we will eat the fresh roasted pork. Just cut them into bite size and eat with rice. Usually, we won't be able to finish it within a day. So, we will wrap them up, keep the left-over in the fridge for the next day. Grandma will heat up the roasted pork by stir-frying it, and add some flavors to enhance it. 

And this is what I'm gonna do.

With my beautiful cast iron skillet, I'm gonna stir-fry it into the way I want it to be! 

  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 2 big cloves or 3 small cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 350g Roasted Pork (烧肉) - chopped into bite size
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 4 tbsp soy sauce
  1. Heat up wok, a tbsp oil, chopped garlic, fry till fragrance. 
  2. Add in roasted pork, give it a quick toss under high heat.
  3. Add in sugar & soy sauce, fry till the pork looks brownish and caramelized. Heat off, dish up.
I don't need to have left-over roasted pork in order to cook this nor going thru the mess of making my own roasted pork. I'm feeding only two today. So, I won't bother. I just get a shop bought roasted pork and do it. I just have the crave for it. So, I just do it in the most stress free way! But if you have the time, and you are feeding a big family, making your own roasted pork is always cheaper. But effort and time is unavoidable.

It is really torturing looking at the picture of this dish, while writing this post at this hour...
