Stir-fry Leek With Minced Pork

Leek is a very distinguish type of vegetable.Leeks, known scientifically as Allium porrum, are related to garlic, onions, shallots, and scallions. Leeks look like large scallions, having a very small bulb and a long white cylindrical stalk of superimposed layers that flows into green, tightly wrapped, flat leaves.Since leeks are related to garlic and onions, they contain many of the same beneficial compounds found in these well-researched, health-promoting vegetables.
Today I cooked this simple dish:leek with minced pork which is tremendously delicious.I ate 2 bowls of rice with it!!.

3 stalk leeks  wash and cut (cut off green tops of leeks and remove outer tough leaves. Cut off root and cut leeks in half lengthwise. Fan out the leeks and rinse well under running water, leaving them intact. Cut leeks into 2-inch lengths. Holding the leek sections cut side up, cut lengthwise so that you end up with thin strips, known as the chiffonade cut, slicing until you reach the green portion)

200 gm minced pork
5-6 cloves garlic,peeled and minced
3 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tbsp chicken bouillon powder
salt to taste
3 tbsp corn oil


1:Heat wok at high heat with oil and garlic.Fry garlic for 30 second and then add in minced pork and chicken bouillon powder. Saute for for 1 minute.
2:Toss in leek and oyster sauce,mix well with the rest ingredients.Cook for 5-8 minutes or until the leek is soft and tender.
3;Check the seasoning.Dish out and serve warm with rice.
