Almonds with Minced Pork
|Almonds with Minced Pork|
1 pound pork loin, minced
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon thin soy sauce
1 teaspoon cornstarch
2 Tablespoons corn oil
1/2 cup almonds*, skin removed and each nut split in half
3 stalks Chinese celery, cut into quarter-inch pieces
1/4 teaspoon small pieces of dried chili pepper
1. Marinate pork with sugar, soy sauce, and cornstarch for half an hour.
2. Heat oil and fry the nuts for one minute, then drain.
3. Fry pork in the oil until no longer pink, then add celery and chili pepper pieces. Fry for one to two more minutes until pork is no longer pink, then return almonds to the mixture and stir well, then serve.
Note: One can use apricot kernels in place of almonds, and when so doing, use only two tablespoons.
