Stir Fry Candied Roast Pork with Garlic

non-halal


I know this is not the best looking dish but oooh it tastes so good. My mom used to make this dish for us with leftover roast pork/siew yoke. She  stir fry it with loads of garlic, thick dark soy sauce and sugar until it is caramelized and sticky. The garlic and pork turns into crunchy sticky bits and it tasted so good with steamed rice or rice porridge

Ingredients:

400 gram roast pork – cut into small pieces
5-6 cloves garlic – roughly chopped
1 ½ tbsp sugar or according to your preference
1 tsp of dark soy sauce
Salt to taste



1. Heat up 1 tbsp of oil in a wok, add in the roast pork and let it brown on one side and then turn them over.
2. Add in the garlic and at this stage turn down the heat to medium so you won’t burn the garlic.
3. Continue to toss and turn them so often until the garlic turns lightly brown. Add in the sugar, dark soy sauce and salt.
4. Turn the heat up to high; continue to stir until sugar melted. It will take less than a minute.
5. Dish out and serve.

I went with my husband to Malaysia to visit his mum earlier this year & she made this dish for lunch along with other dishes. She showed me how to do it & i was surprised that it's very easy to do & tastes delicious! This dish reminds me of her :)
