Potato and Pork

Inspiration - Now, this is definitely a home-cooked dish. Again, a regular feature by my grandma and now my mom and now myself! I don't find it in many restaurants in Malaysia but I know in PJ Seapark, there is this restaurant that serves this. I can't remember the name of the restaurant but some of their other signature dishes include the deep fried fish (with soy sauce as base) and also their steamed 3 eggs. Anyway, this is a lovely dish and goes well with rice.

Simple Ingredients-
1) Potato - 2 large potatoes
2) Sliced Pork - marinated with salt, pepper, soy sauce and flour.
3) Sauce - soy sauce, a drop of dark soy sauce and oyster sauce.

Simple steps -

1) Slice the potato to thin slices. Also, dry it with a paper towel to remove the moisture.

2) Fill the pan/wok with oil for deep frying. This is an important step. If the potato slices are not a bit crispy, you may end up with a lumpy potatoes. Therefore, stir-fry till half crispy. Remove and drain the oil.

3) Next, in the same wok (remove access oil), put in the marinate pork slices. Stir-fry together with the sauce. Add water for the sauce base. When the pork is cooked and the sauce is boiling, put in the fried potato slices. Just mix together to ensure all the potato get soaked in the sauce and you can dish up to plate.

4) And there you have it. Potato and pork dish! Voila! Ready to eat! Trust me... it is yum yum!
