For the Pork and Marinade:

  • 300 g pork loin or shoulder thinly sliced
  • 2 cubes of red fermented bean curd 南乳, mashed
  • 1 tablespoon of the sauce from the fermented bean curd
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Shaoxing wine or dry sherry

For the Stir-Fry:

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 medium carrot julienned
  • 1 bell pepper sliced into strips
  • A handful of snow peas trimmed
  • 1 small head of broccoli cut into florets
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth or water
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Optional for Garnishing:

  • Chopped green onions or sesame seeds


Marinate the Pork:

  • In a bowl, combine the thinly sliced pork with the mashed fermented bean curd, the sauce from the bean curd, cornstarch, sugar, and Shaoxing wine. Mix well to ensure the pork slices are evenly coated. Let it marinate for at least 30 minutes.

Prepare the Vegetables:

  • While the pork is marinating, prepare all your vegetables by washing, peeling, and cutting them into bite-sized pieces.

Stir-Fry the Pork:

  • Heat 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in a large skillet or wok over high heat. Add half of the minced garlic and stir-fry briefly until fragrant.
  • Add the marinated pork slices, spreading them out in the pan. Let them sear without moving for a minute, then stir-fry until they're just cooked through. Remove the pork from the pan and set aside.

Cook the Vegetables:

  • In the same pan, add another tablespoon of oil if needed. Add the remaining garlic and then the prepared vegetables. Stir-fry for a few minutes until they're brightly colored but still crisp. You may add a little chicken broth or water to help steam the vegetables and prevent sticking.

Combine Pork and Vegetables:

  • Return the cooked pork slices to the pan with the vegetables. Toss everything together, cooking for another minute or two. If the dish seems dry, add a bit more chicken broth or water to achieve a slightly saucy consistency.


  • Taste and adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper if necessary.


  • Transfer the stir-fry to a serving dish. Garnish with chopped green onions or a sprinkle of sesame seeds if desired.
