Sliced Pork with Garlic Recipe

This recipe works best with “five flower” pork (wu hua zhu rou) – a “marbled” cut of pork that has both lean and fat. Leftovers may be kept in the refrigerator and served the next day.

Ingredients :

    • 500 g (1 lb) marbled pork
    • Sauce
    • 8 cloves garlic, very finely minced
    • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
    • 2 teaspoons sugar
    • 1 teaspoon black Chinese vinegar
    • 3 teaspoons sesame oil
    • Coriander leaves, to garnish

Method :

    1. Bring a pot of water to a boil, add the pork. Return to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer for another 35 minutes. Remove the pork with a slotted spoon and set aside in a colander to drain and cool completely.
    2. Use a sharp knife to cut the pork, across the grain, into very thin slices, so that each slice has both lean and fat portions. Arrange the sliced pork evenly on a serving platter.
    3. Mix all the Sauce ingredients in a bowl until well blended. Drizzle the Sauce evenly over the sliced pork. Serve immediately or chill until ready to serve.

For a spicy flavor, add 1 teaspoon ground black pepper or 1 finely minced red finger-length chili to the sauce.
