- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 1 cup pork belly or chicken - sliced into thin strips
- 1 cup shrimps
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch - dissolved in 1 cup water
- 3-4 tablespoons oyster sauce
- 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
- 1 cup cauliflower florets
- 1 cup broccoli florets
- 1 medium carrot - sliced diagonally
- 1 cup sugar snap or snow peas
- 1 small bell pepper - cut into diagonal cubes
- 1 bunch pak choi - cut into smaller pieces
- 1 medium red onion - cut into 4
- 3-4 pieces mushroom - each cut into 3-4 slices
- 5 pieces young corn - each cut diagonally into 2
- salt as needed
In a wok or big skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Saute garlic until softened. Add the pork belly slices and cook, stirring regularly, until all sides are done. Add the shrimps and do the same.
Pour the cornstarch mixture into the wok and add the oyster sauce and ground pepper and bring to a boil. Doing this from the beginning keeps the veggies crisp and helps prevents over-cooking them. Take out the shrimps.
Add the first batch of vegetables: broccoli, cauliflower, carrots and sugar snap peas and cook covered for about 2-3 minutes.
Add the rest of the vegetables and cook for another 2-3 minutes or until vegetables are tender-crisp and the sauce has thickened. Add the shrimp back. Season with salt if still needed. Serve hot.
