A Little Guy Woking in His Big Kitchen

Dark Soya Sauce Pork

I’m refering this in summary with permission from Food Haven. This was my favourite when I was a kid where my mum would cook occasionally. Kids love it. Tender and lean meat is adviseable. My mum would use pork oil as it’s more aroma.

* 300gms pork fillet (the part near the kidney which is the most tender) cut into tiny strips or thin slices
* Season with 2 tablespoonslight soya sauce, 2 tablespoons dark soya sauce, 1 tablespoon sugar and lots of pepper.

Put the seasoned pork into the wok and let it simmer for a while. This will force the juice out of the meat. Then add some oil, AFTER the meat is partially cooked. If you like a bit of gravy, add a little water if too dry. But it tastes better with not too much gravy.

Then, when the pork is cooked, taste and adjust accordingly. Add more dark soya sauce and sugar if it is not black enough. It has to be shiny black to taste oomph.

Extra Notes
Others recommends adding some star anise to makes it more fragrant. Others suggested good quality dark sauce is Cap Orkid.
