Pork with Garlic Stem Stirfry

Pork with Garlic Stem Stirfry
Pork with Garlic Stem Stirfry. Garlic stems, also known as garlic sprouts and garlic bolts, are different from garlic chives. Garlic chives are look similar with spring onions except that they come with bulb at the ends, while garlic stems are sturdier and are solid round. Garlic stems obviously taste like garlic but milder. This is not a regular vegetable to the average Pinoy, it is however widely used in Chinese cooking. I have regularly seeing garlic stem at Woolworths supermarket, otherwise they may be available in some Asian stores. Garlic stems are best cooked stirfry, it can be stirfried as it is or with meat or fish and seafood. What I did is cooked it with porkloin and with oyster sauce. Here is the recipe of my Pork with Garlic Stem Stirfry.
