Easy pork stir fry recipe with peppers and Chinese fermented beans
This is the sister dish to famous Sichuan style twice cooked pork belly, enjoying a high popularity in China. Comparing with the traditional twice cooked pork belly, this easy pork stir fry with peppers is much easier to make. This is an important seasoning called in this recipe: fermented soy beans. Fermented soy bean has a very unique strong flavor. You may find it listed as an ingredient in many Sichuan style dishes. I am using this Lao Gan Ma Black Bean Chilli Sauce, 280g which contains a small amount of chili oil. If you are using pure fermented soy bean, you need to add some extra chili oil.
Firstly cut the peppers into small pieces and then cut ginger and garlic too.
Cut pork belly into thin slices.
Heat up the wok; add pork slices directly to stir fry until lightly curled.
Transfer the slices from the wok, heat cooking oil in wok; add ginger, garlic to stir fry until aroma. Put the pepper slices in to cook for around 2 minutes or until soft.
Add salt, soy sauce and 1 tablespoon of fermented soy beans. Mix well and we are done with this easy stir fry recipe.
