Pork Ampalaya with Black Beans

Pork Ampalaya with Black Beans
Pork Ampalaya with Black Beans, in the tradition of beef ampalaya I would like to share a version using pork. The dish is made up of strips of pork belly instead of beef, the pork is first pre-boiled then sautéed with black beans or tausi and soy sauce before adding the ampalaya and quickly simmered with oyster sauce. The dish really turned out great probably because of the use of pork belly instead of lean pork, I would suggest using pork loin if a leaner dish is preferred. I have no hesitation recommending the dish to every one especially to those who love ampalaya. Here is the recipe of my Pork Ampalaya with Black Beans.


1/4 kilo pork belly, cut into thick strips, boiled
1 big size ampalaya, de-seeded, cut into strips
2-3 clove garlic, chopped 1 small size onion, chopped
1 small can fermented black beans, tausi
1/4 cup oyster sauce
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup cornstarch cooking oil salt to taste

  Pork Ampalaya with Black Beans - Cooking Procedure


In a wok sauté garlic and onion until fragrant add in the pork and stir cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Add in the soy sauce and the black bean juices, reserve the black beans and stir cook for another 1 to 2 minutes. Add in 1 cup of water and bring to a boil and simmer for 2 to 3 minutes. Now add in the ampalaya and cook for 3 to 5 minutes or until the vegetables are just cooked. Add in the reserved black beans and oyster sauce, cook for 1 to 2 minutes, correct saltiness if required. Thicken sauce with cornstarch diluted with 1/4 cup of water cook for another half a minute or until sauce thickens. Served hot.
