Stir-fried Leeks with Roast Pork and Bean Curd

Today is the 15th day of Chinese New Year, also known as Yuan Xiao Festival (元宵节) or Lantern Festival. This day is also the Chinese version of Valentine’s Day, and marks the end of the Chinese New Year festivities. It’s a great day to eat leeks, an auspicious food for Chinese New Year because the character “蒜” in its Chinese name (蒜苗/大蒜) sounds like calculating (“算”) in Mandarin, symbolizing wealth. In this recipe, I stir-fry leeks with roast pork, a winning combination I saw at my friend’s Pablo blog.

The natural saltiness of the roast pork flavours the dish and complements the leeks well. I added tau kwa (deep fried bean curd) and carrots for a more complete meal. The result was good and a hit with my family.

Whether I make my own roast pork (siu yuk) or buy it ready-made from the market, I always plan for leftovers the next day to cook this dish. In this way, I got two meals figured out.

  1. I cook it in this way too. Delicious!

  2. My grandma used to do this with leftover roast pork, so good with rice!

  3. Hi, you have forgotten the fried beancurd in the direction procedure.;(

  4. Thank you for the great idea. I still have leftover roast pork and definitely will try this recipe out =)
    Btw, just wondering, how did you cut your carrot so beautifully? =D

  5. Another dish I tried, second attempt to cook in my life! The dish turned out soggy wonder if it’s the leek? And my roasted pork taste bitter on skin! I think I added too much Chinese wine. How come mine is so wet? Help! Need to practice more. This is mild dish too :( I messed it

    • I’m not sure why it is soggy, did you dry the vegetables before stir frying or measure the amount of ingredients (instead of estimation)? I’m also not sure why the roasted pork taste bitter, it should taste as it is when you bought it. If it is too mild, you can season it to taste (e.g. more salt)

  6. Hi

    Can we add water during frying , at what stage, and would this cause the lost of aroma of the wine at the end?
    Thank you
