My hubby is no lover of chicken so I re-created this dish with pork instead and it turned out wonderful.
300g pork, sliced
8-10 slices ginger (I like ginger so used more)
6 cloves garlic, with skin removed and flattened with knife
1 small red chilli, sliced
Some basil leaves, rinsed (I used curry leaves as that was available in my fridge. Basil will be much much nicer)
3 tbsp sesame oil (the tablespoon used here is the Chinese metal spoon traditionally found in Singaporean homes. I believed it is also known as the dessert spoon in America)
3 tbsp cooking wine
3 tbsp soy sauce
2 tsp caster sugar
- In a pan on low fire, add sesame oil, ginger, garlic and red chilli. Fry till fragrant (just 2-3 minutes will do)
- Add sliced pork and stir fry till pork is cooked.
- Add in the rest of the ingredients i.e. cooking wine, soy sauce and sugar. Continue to stir fry.
- When all the sauce is about to dry up, add in the basil leaves, stir fry slightly and we are done.
