Quick Champuruu-style Pork Stir-fry

Quick Champuruu-style Pork Stir-fry

No need for complicated preparations or marinating. A quick and simple Chanpuruu-style stir-fry.
Seasoned lightly with soy sauce and sesame oil. You could serve this over a bowl of rice.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Pork (offcuts)
200 g
Bean sprouts
5-6 handfuls
Tofu
1 block
Chopped scallions
Add to taste
Sake
1-2 tablespoons
Soy sauce
1 teaspoon
Salt and pepper
To taste
Sesame oil
To taste

Steps

1. Slice the pork into bite-sized pieces. Dice the tofu if using the silken kind, and tear with your hands if using firm tofu. Drain the tofu well.
2. Heat a little vegetable oil in a frying pan. Add the pork. When it starts to brown, add sake to remove the smell of the pork. Cook over high heat to evaporate the alcohol. Season with salt and pepper.
3. Add the bean sprouts and fry them quickly. Stir in the tofu. Cook over high to medium heat. Sprinkle in the soy sauce and sesame along the side of the pan and toss well.
4. Add more salt and pepper if necessary. Add the chopped scallion at the end. Mix well and turn off the heat. Plate the stir-fry and serve.

Story Behind this Recipe

I made up this recipe using leftovers in my fridge. If you don't have tofu, replace with finely scrambled eggs.
