Whenever I watch Western cooking show, I am always amazed how simple the chef marinade the steak they are cooking. Most of the time they just use pepper and salt. Actually, this simple marinade maintain the natural flavours of meat and is real tasty if you cook it right. The addition of various sauces enhances these flavours more.
I tried cooking lean pork with just pepper and salt. Since I wanted to char the meat a little, I used non-stick wok with no oil. I added leeks and onion so that I do not have to cook another vegetable dish. Anyway, leeks always taste good with pork.
Here is my Plain Fired Lean Pork with Leeks recipe......
Pork, 500gms, cut into thin slices
Pepper, to taste
Salt to taste
Leeks, 3 stalks, wash throughly and cut onto desired length
Onion, 1 pc, cut into thin slices
Garlic, 3 cloves, smashed
Marinade pork with salt and pepper. Heat up non-stick wok and put in the marinated pork. Fry at medium heat until they are slightly burned. Add in the onions and fry until they are slightly brown. Throw in the leeks. Stir fry for a short while. Serve while still hot.
Note : You can make some sauce to go with this dish which is rather dry.
PS : If you want a tastier dish, use pork belly with a layer of fat on it........mmmm, nice!
