Stir-fry Pork with Negi (Japanese scallion)

There are lots of leftover negi (aka Japanese scallions, welsh or long green onion) from the CNY hotpot sessions. During the festivities, the supermarkets are selling these scallions more cheaply so I often buy more stalks at one go to enjoy the discounts. No worries, as we love scallions at home. When I tried using the scallions for stir-fries instead of putting it in hot pot, we loved it instantly. The cooked scallion has a pleasantly mild & sweet onion flavour that complements meat well. Check out the step-by-step photos below, including how to prepare the scallions.
