Pork Stir-Fry With Spinach

“I had the two main ingredients on hand, and decided to get creative. We are big lovers of sesame oil. Everyone was pleased with the results, so I thought I'd post this before I forgot it. I served with this warm hokkien noodles, but rice would be fine, too.”

  1. Toast the sesame seeds in a dry pan over a medium heat for 3 to 4 minutes, or until golden. Shake the pan gently to keep the seeds moving (and not burning). Remove seeds from pan and set aside to cool.
  2. Combine the garlic, scallions, chili, cayenne and pork. Mix well and set aside.
  3. Combine soy sauce, sugar and 4 teaspoons of sesame oil. Mix well and set aside.
  4. Heat the oil with the splash of sesame oil in a wok or heavy-based frying pan. Stir fry the pork (in 3-4 batches) over a high heat until golden. Remove meat and set aside.
  5. Add the spinach and soy, sugar and sesame oil mixture to the wok/pan. Stir lightly and cover. Cook for 1-2 minutes or until spinach is soft.
  6. Return pork to the pan, add the sesame seeds, stir well and heat for about 1 minute.
  7. Serve over noodles or rice.
