Pork with Fermented Bean Curd

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Pork, Chinese

 Ingredients List

  • 1 1/2 c Chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 c Water
  • 1 1/2 lb Boneless pork (loin
  • -or butt) in 1" cubes
  • 1 cl Garlic, mashed
  • 1 tb Soy sauce
  • 5 Scallions, rinsed,
  • -green parts only
  • 2 Pcs fermented bean curd
  • 3 tb Dry sherry


Bring liquids to a boil. Add pork, garlic, and soy. Reduce heat and
simmer 30 min, skimming crud off occasionally. Slice the scallions
into 1" pieces and dump them in. Add the bean curd and mash it around
until it's incorporated in the sauce. Add sherry (if you use more
bean curd, use less sherry; if you use less bean curd, use more
sherry). Continue to simmer until pork is tender, 15 to 30 min more.
You may put a slice or two of ginger in with the garlic, but my
mother never did that.

This dish should have visible fat. The sauce should be thin and have a
slightly curdled look to it. To pay lip service to western
sensibilities, you might consider serving it surrounded with a
stir-fried green vegetable (my mother used spinach). Warning: do not
even think of making this dish with totally lean meat! It just won't
work - the meat will be stringy and tasteless. Butt or fresh bacon is
the traditional way, but the fattier and gristlier ends of loin,
after all the stir-fryable parts have been cut away, will do.
