Stir-Fry Long Beans with Roasted Pork in Black Pepper Sauce

This is one of those simple "everyday" dish, that is great with some Jasmine rice. Really easy, quick and delicious.

I made this dish a couple of weeks ago using frozen roasted pork. You may however used freshly bought roasted pork belly. Since mine was frozen, I thawed it overnight in the refrigerator, pan-fry the whole piece with a teaspoon of oil in a saucepan on both sides over low heat until the meat is heated thru and skin is crispy. Remove, drain, let cool and cut to thin slices.

Long beans which are cut into 2" sections, are first sauteed in a little oil until cooked but still crunchy, with some black marks appear in some pieces, about 4-5 minutes. They are removed to a plate and proceed with the cooking of the sauce, and toss everything together to combine together with the roasted pork.

The brand of black pepper sauce I used is Lee Kum Kee. Different brands may differ in terms of the spiciness and saltiness, adjust according to your taste.

A simple and tasty dish, great with rice.
