Stir-fry White Bittergourd & Pork

This is an easy stir-fry using Taiwanese white bitter gourd (bitter melon). I love Taiwan, and I really missed my annual Taipei trip, during which I will work, cook in my studio apartment and eat local for at least 3 weeks. The bitter gourd in Taiwan is white and I think it has a more pleasant bitter taste than the local green ones here (or is it the “grass is greener on the other side” syndrome)? Anyway, when I saw white bitter gourd here, I bought one and cook it the same day to make this dish, reminiscing my time in Taipei.

Since the bitter gourd is popular in Taiwan, I used my favourite Taiwanese chilli soybean paste for the stir-fry. The sauce is a staple in my pantry, and it is a very convenient fail-safe sauce to use in stir-fries, as it is very tasty and stands well on its own.

  1. One of my favourite summer dishes! I really miss bitter gourds!

  2. Also not easy to find white bittergourd here. They seasonally appear in farmers market but farmer market only happen once a week and not so convenient. I love bittergourd, and realized have not cooked them for some time already.

    Any trip to Taiwan this year or already done for the year?
