How to Cook Fish-Flavored Shredded Pork
Fish-flavored shredded pork is a common Sichuan dish. The fish flavor is not created from any fish product but the chili sauce, salt, soy sauce, white sugar, diced chives, minced ginger and garlic. Therefore, this dish tastes complex but delicious: salty, sweet, sour, spicy and fresh.
250g lean pork, 100g carrot and 70g black fungus
Seasonings: 30g thick broad-bean sauce, 2 green onions, a small piece of ginger, 5 pieces of garlic, some corn starch, 50g cooking oil, 10g soy sauce, 5g vinegar, 3g salt, 15g white sugar, and 1g chicken powder
Note: The amount of the seasonings listed above can be adjusted according to personal taste.
