Taucu sliced pork with chilli

Each time my Mum cooks this dish, I always go back for second helping.  This is one of those dishes that will taste better the next day. For me, I don't any other side dish to go with steamed rice when I have this one.

150gm thinly sliced pork
3 green chilli
1 red chilli
4 chilly padi (optional)
2 tbs tau cu paste
1 ts chopped garlic
3 tbs water
1 tbs sugar

1 ts corn starch
1 ts sesame oil
½ ts ground white pepper
1 ts mashed bullion chicken stock

Marinate sliced pork in (A) for at least 2 hours.  Heat oil in wok and fry garlic till fragrance.  Add tau cu and fry for 1 min or so.  Add slice pork and stir fry till pork is whitish in color.  Add green chilly and chilly padi.  Stir fry for another min and add water and sugar and let it simmer till pork is completely cooked.

  4. Hi Cheah,
    I am always very happy to hear my foodie friends said that a dish brings back fond memories because there are so many that do that for me. I realize as I grow older, those memories of my past seems to take a more prominent place in my heart than I was younger. It is so good to see you again.

  5. Taucu sliced with chili what a healthy recipe. Did you know that chili pepper have been a part of the human diet in the Americas since at least 7500 BC.And chili pepper have also been associated with fat-burning properties. Thermogenics like capsaicin pump up the metabolism of the body and stimulate its ability to burn fat by generating heat.

  6. Hi elpi,

    It is so good to see you and thank you for the info about chilli! I am a chilli head but did not know that they are associated with fat burning properties. I wonder if this is why I don't really put on much weight even how much I eat. I must have a small plate of bird chilli (chilli padi) everyday with my meals.

  7. Looks really good@ Another new discovery for me; thank you.

  8. That dish looks mouthwatering! I love pork and spicy food. Perfect!
