Let's cook!

Let’s COOK...

  1. Add 1 tbsp of oil in a frying pan/wok over a high heat and add the pork in batches until it is browned all over. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside. / Place the tofu into a mixing bowl, add cornflour and season with salt and pepper. Make sure the tofu is covered on all sides. Add enough oil into the wok/pan over a high heat, make sure the oil fully coats the bottom of the pan/wok. Carefully place tofu pieces in batches into the pan. Cook for 5 minutes, turning each piece every minute or so until they start to turn golden brown and crispy. Transfer to a plate lined with kitchen paper. Tip away any excess oil.
  2. Over a low heat, add 1/2 tablespoon of oil, shallots, ginger & garlic paste and the chilli for 1-2 mins until it starts to soften.
  3. In a jug, mix the Unami stock with 200ml of water.
  4. Add 1 tbsp of fish sauce and the stock to the pan/wok and mix together & bring to the boil.
  5. Add the sugar and stir continuously until the sugar has dissolved.
  6. Add the pork/tofu and bubble vigorously for 6-8 (3-5) mins or until the sauce thickens to coat the pork/tofu and become glossy. Add the Pak Choi and turn onto a medium heat, cook for 2-3 minutes.
  7. Taste and stir in a little more fish sauce, if needed, along with the sweet chilli sauce.
  8. In a separate pan add boiling water and simmer the pak choi for 2-3 minutes. Once cooked, remove/drain and set aside for serving.
  9. Sprinkle with the spring onions and sesame seeds (optional), serve with steamed rice and sliced pak choi.
