  • 450g/1lb lean pork
  • 1 tbsp shaoxing rice wine (or dry sherry)
  • 1 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp cornflour
  • 1½ tbsp groundnut (peanut) oil
  • 1½ tbsp black beans, rinsed and coarsely chopped

  • 3 tbsp spring onions, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp shallots, chopped
  • 1½ tbsp light soy sauce
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp chicken stock or water

  1. Cut the pork into thin slices. In a bowl, mix the cornflour, sesame oil, soy sauce and rice wine together. Add the pork slices. Make sure the pork is coated with the marinade. Marinate the pork for at least 20 minutes.

  3. Wipe the wok clean. Reheat the rest of the oil. Add the shallots, spring onions, garlic and the black beans. Add the rest of the ingredients a few seconds later. Bring the mix to a boil and return the pork to the wok. Stir-fry for an additional 5 minutes.
