Garlic Scapes Stir Fried with Pork

(Last Updated on November 3, 2023 by Amiee)

Today’s garlic scapes stir fried with pork is a common home-cooked dish in China, and using it with rice is another classic. This dish is also a good choice for those who bring lunch boxes to work. Pork is a classic paired with many dishes, and they complement each other. Just like the pork stew with string beans , because the vegetables themselves have a slightly sweet taste, coupled with the aroma of pork, the sauce of the dish seeps into the rice, and it is impossible not to eat more than one bowl of rice.

Light soy sauce is the soul of this dish, and the heat is the key to success or failure. The light soy sauce gives the dish juices. Stir frying over high heat preserves its texture and flavor to the greatest extent possible. Many Chinese dishes are stir-fried over high heat and can be done in minutes. The Chinese call them small stir-fryings.

The time has come to the beginning of summer solar term, which means that summer has begun. This time last year was a hot summer, and this year is still the temperature of spring. The weather under the COVID-19 has also changed. In any case, let’s enjoy the present time. Cooking a dish and drinking a glass of wine are all rewards for yourself.
