Bok Choy with Barbecued Pork & Black Beans

Sliced barbecued pork from Chinese BBQ shops is so delicious, I love to nibble on it straight from the container. It's the main ingredient of this simple dish, along with plenty of bok choy - just be careful you don't eat too much of it on the way home!

Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes
Serves: 4

6 medium-sized bok choy
2 tbsp fermented black beans
1 tbsp vegetable oil
2 garlic cloves, crushed
2 tsp ginger, crushed
Dash of mirin
2 tbsp soy sauce
1/2 cup sliced barbecued pork
1/4 cup finely sliced shallots
Ground white pepper

Trim and wash the bok choy, then cut each into quarters. Rinse the black beans in a strainer under cold water for a minute.

Heat some oil in a wok until it begins to smoke and add the bok choy, garlic and ginger. Keep the heat up and cook for 2 minutes, stirring, until bok choy begins to wilt. Add the black beans, mirin and soy sauce. Stir or move the wok so everything is mixed well. Add the pork and shallots.

Take off the heat, add ground white pepper to taste and serve.
