Pork with vegetables: Oriental style

27 Ago

It is already the last week of August and in order to cheer us nothing better than cooking some special recipe. No matter if our holidays end or start, I propose a wink to the Oriental cuisine with this Pork with vegetables, Oriental style. Here you´ll find a very easy recipe, with pictures step by step. You´ll be able to enjoy a complete main course, full of flavor and color, a homemade foreign menu where cereals, vegetables, meat, even fruit, are perfectly combined.

I can´t tell you a lot about this recipe, just it is the result of my interest and liking for the Asian gastronomy. After being experiencing with many other proposals, such as this Cerdo Agridulce (Sweet and sour pork), the Kofta Curry or the Mujaddara, these two last from the closer Middle East, I figured out this idea, cooked up with ingredients are available in any supermarket.  Would you like to eat some Asian course at home? Then, let´s go into the kitchen.

How to prepare Pork with vegetables, Oriental style

  1. At least 1/2 hour before starting the recipe, cut the meat into strips and put them into a glass container with the grated ginger and the soy sauce. Just the necessary amount to cover the meat. Cover with film and let marinating into the fridge.

  2.  Back into the kitchen, get the vegetables ready to use: cut the garlic into slices; the onion, the red bell pepper and the cabbage into julienne. Take a look to the process of the cabbage´s cut in the pictures are bellow. It is about making a roll or two rolls and cut them into slices.

  3. Heat the 3 oil tablespoons into a pan or wok. Add the garlic, the onion and the red bell pepper, season with the mix of pepper and a pinch of salt. Let cook for 5 minutes and after that add the dates cut into slices too, sauté and incorporate the cabbage.
  4. Ad a trickle of soy sauce, cover and let cook, middle heat, while we cook up the pork strips.

  5. Take the strips out of the container and put aside momentarily. Dissolve the cornmeal into the soy sauce where the meat was marinating, take the meat back into the same sauce now with cornmeal and stir in order to the strips absorb this sort of tempura.

  6. Take other pan and heat oil enough to fry the pork strips little by little (remove the tempura´s extra sauce). Once golden, take out the strips and put them aside over absorbent paper in order to avoid extra fats.

  7. Check the vegetables, they don´t have to be very soft, it´ll be better if they are al dente, especially the cabbage.
  8. Cook the rice, previously washed, into boiling water with salt. Let cook during 10 or 12 minutes and strain.
  9. Serve the rice, put a vegetable layer and over it put the pork strips.

If you don´t like dates, you can use toast or natural almonds that combines very well with this kind of courses. Also, you can substitute pork for beef if the meat is tender, because of this I recommend veal steak preferably. Then, nothing more, I hope you have fun this week, if it is not, at least, have fun cooking!;)
