When I decided to tidy my freezer I found a few pork steaks that had seen (much) better days. They were freezer burnt and sad looking but no way was I going to waste them so I turned them into this dish:
Serves 4 to 6
- 500g (approx) pork shoulder steaks
- 2 medium red onions, halved and thinly sliced
- 2 garlic cloves, chopped
- ½ teaspoon chilli powder
- 1 red pepper, sliced
- 1 yellow pepper, sliced
- 2 green peppers, sliced
- 1 mug full of all purpose flour
- ½ a mug of 5 spice powder
- A couple of generous splashes of dark soy sauce
- 3 very generous splashes of sweet chilli sauce
- Salt to taste
- Place flour, 5 spice, salt and chilli powder in a large bag (I used a 1 gallon zip lock bag) and shake to mix.
- Add the meat to the flour mix and shake thoroughly to coat evenly
- Heat oil in a sauté pan (a frying pan will do).
- Take the meat out of the bag, a handful at a time, shaking off the extra flour and place in the hot oil. Put just enough meat for 1 layer.
- Fry for a few minutes, tossing when brown then set aside.
- Repeat until all the meat has been cooked.
- In a separate pan, fry the onions.
- Add the peppers and garlic and continue cooking for a couple of minutes.
- Add the meat, the soya sauce, the sweet chili sauce. Add salt if needed.
- Cook for another couple of minutes, tossing regularly.
