This is a quick stir fry pork dish so easy to prepare yet it is so delicious with rice or porridge.  If you notice from the recipe, there is no water added to cook the meat yet the meat is so tender [no marinating is needed, too]. It is suitable as an accompaniment dish for Bento meals.   A dish suitable for the young and old.
Stir fried over high heat, the meat cooks fast and so aromatic with the fragrant spring onions. Remember to add as much spring onions as possible to bring out the sweetness of meat.  Simply awesome.
The red sweet sauce which I used is 'tian mian jiang', the kind of sauce use in wet popiah rolls.
Recipe adapted from Yum Yum Magazine No. 67
200 gm pork tenderloin - shredded 
1 tbsp oil
1/2 tbsp chopped garlic
3 stalks spring onions - cut 1 inch lengths
1/2 tbsp fermented soy bean paste [taucheong]
1 tbsp red sweet sauce [tian mian jiang]
1/2 tbsp light soy sauce
dash of sesame seed oil

  1. Heat oil in a non-stick wok, saute garlic until aromatic.
  2. Add in the shredded meat, stir fry until meat turns pale and the meat will release some juice.  
  3. Add in the seasoning and continue to stir fry over high heat until the meat is almost dry.
  4. Lastly add in the spring onions, stir to mix well.
  5. Dish up to serve immediately.

This pork dish will go well with plain white porridge.

Hi Soke Hah, didn't expect this dish to be so tasty. Can be a Bento dish, too.

Kimmy, this is another quick and delicious dish that I must try! It's very good for time saving and I always appreciate this type of recipes.

Hi Phong Hong, it is speedier if you can get the meat cut and stored away for later use. Just stir fry quickly in the non-stick pan and it's ready to serve.
