Ginger scallions (spring onions) pork stir-fry (姜葱猪肉) is one of my favourite childhood home-cooked recipe by my mum.

This dish was where I got my training and headstart in eating chilli padi, for my mum would add an insane number of chilli padi into it and it was so choking hot for a child (I think most adults couldn’t handle it either), yet so satisfying. So I owe this dish & my mum for introducing me to the wonderful world of spicy foods.

Ginger & Scallions Pork

According to my mum, this dish is so simple that she could “cook it with her eyes closed” (show off, mummy hehe). But true to her words, this recipe requires very basic seasonings and is really straight forward. If you are looking for a yummy, fast and easy stir fry, this recipe is for you. A secret to this dish is to get the tenderloin cut for the pork. The tenderloin is more premium (it is usually at least double the price of normal cut) and recognisable by its longish cut (because it is located at the spine area). No matter how you cook it, the pork remains tender. My mum told me that women on confinement cook a version of this dish (with more ginger, more sesame oil and some hard liquor) with the tenderloin not because the cut is more nourishing, but because they want to pamper themselves as they are recuperating from childbirth. Luckily, nowadays we don’t have to wait until confinement or any special occasions to enjoy a better cut of meat for the family.

  1. My All Time Favourite too! :)

  2. I like this dish too – my family does it with chicken sometimes and love it! An old aunt of mine does a wonderful dish of similar out of pig liver and again, I love it. Can’t go wrong with that combi of green onions, ginger, garlic, chili and the sauces. If you do a He Bao Dan (Fried Egg), the gravy will go so well with the rice and egg. Wah, making myself hungry….

    • I can tell that you were hungry while you wrote this comment. And I felt hungry after reading your comment lol. Next time I made this, I must have a he bao dan to go with it … hungry! :p

  3. Wow! Awesome!!! This is one of my favourite dish… I can have two bowl of rice just with this dish because of it’s gravy…. :p

  5. Sometimes the easy recipe and simple cook is the best. I love this recipe because I don’t like to spend so much time in the kitchen :p Love the tenderloin part. Can I say that that part is more juicy? Another great cooking from you

  6. I love this simple dish……I cooked the chicken the same way…so yummy!

  7. I can almost taste this dish! Homecooked meals are the best!

  8. Yah boy, I had this quite a lot during confinement. No chilli, but extra ginger and cognac. It’s a really nice dish. Your mom is so cute, can do with her eyes closed. Did you show her your photos? I’m sure she would be proud. :)

  9. I think we have been brought up pretty similar cause it’s my mum’s recipe as well. I’ve had my fair share of this dish when growing up. Miss it cause my other half is not much of a pork person.

  10. For this dish, I want to add one more bowl of rice, yummy!
