I found myself staring at a tray of pork menudo-cut and a big bitter gourd. What to do? I combined them and ended up with this dish. We love bitter gourd in our house so I like to find new ways of cooking it.
For the pork
salt and pepper
For the rest of the dish
bitter gourd, prepared and sliced
Chinese cooking wine
dark soy sauce
light soy sauce
cornstarch diluted in water
Let's do this!
Season the pork with salt and pepper. Dredge in cornstarch and fry in oil. Set aside.
In a wok, saute the chopped garlic and onions. Add the bitter gourd. Cook the bitter gourd for a minute or two. Add about a tablespoon of Chinese cooking wine. In a bowl, combine dark and light soy sauce, some water, oyster sauce and sugar. Add this to the wok. Add the pork.Let simmer for about 3 minutes. Add the cornstarch mixture and the chopped spring onions. Serve with rice.
