Stir-fried Ginger Pork

Pin It!

Ginger is a flavourful spice that's useful not only in cooking/baking. It's also has many health benefits such as lowering cholesterol, prevents the formation of blood clots, calm an upset stomach, relieves nausea, has anti viral and anti inflammatory properties etc. It's definitely one spice that we always have at home even if we don't plan to cook with it as it comes in real handy when we want to brew some Chai!       

Stir-fried Ginger Pork is also one dish that we cook quite often as it a very fragrant and appetising dish. It's especially good if the ginger used is young and spicy! Chicken can also be used if preferred.

Ingredients (Serve 2)
250g of Pork fillet or shoulder (sliced)
2 big thumbs of ginger (julienned)
2 tbsp of oyster sauce (or vegetarian oyster flavoured sauce)
1 tbsp of corn flour
1 tsp of sesame oil 
1 tbsp of sunflower oil

Marinate pork slices in oyster sauce and cornflour for at least 30 mins.
Stir in sesame oil once you are ready to start cooking. If sesame oil is used earlier, it'll coat the pork and prevents the marination from working it's magic.
Heat sunflower oil in a wok.
Add in ginger and stir fry over a medium heat until the ginger is pretty dry (about 10 mins)
Add in pork and stir fry over a high heat until cooked. (about 3-4 mins)
Serve immediately with rice. Some blanched tenderstem broccoli goes well with the dish too!


  1. Ginger and I have major problems. Although I absolutely love it for its taste and benefits, I have the most difficult time cutting it. I can't even imagine trying to prepare it julienne.

    But, I want this dish so bad, it looks so delicious I could just "pop" through to taste it. So, I will try again and again until I get it right!

    Thank you so much for sharing, Sylvia. You always have the best "pops and shots", lol...
