Pork With Tofu and Black Beans in Oyster Sauce

Since I started cooking, oyster sauce has become so handy for me. It is one condiment that I find so ideal in creating flavorful dishes. I just love how well it works with anything! Whether it be beef, pork, poultry, seafood or vegetables, the savory flavor of oyster sauce will definitely create an amazing dish out of it.

Whenever I run out of ideas of what to prepare for dinner, oyster sauce always saves the day! I just combine whatever ingredients I have and cook it in oyster sauce...and VOILA, we have a yummy dish like this...
This Pork With Tofu and Black Beans in Oyster Sauce is another one of those many dishes that I came up with using oyster sauce. It's a combination of lean pork cubes, fried tofu and freshly cooked black beans and bell pepper for added flavor. For the steps in cooking beans, go here

Happy Leap Day everyone!


Ingredients:
  • 1 lb lean pork, cubed
  • 4 pcs. tofu, cubed
  • ½ cup freshly cooked or canned black beans, drained ( I used freshly cooked beans)
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 medium sized onions, chopped
  • ¼ cup oyster sauce
  • ½ red bell pepper, seeds removed and cut into strips
  • 4 stalks green onions, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • garlic powder
  • salt and pepper
  • vegetable oil for frying tofu

Procedure:
1. Sprinkle pork with garlic powder, salt and pepper. Let sit for at least 15 minutes.
2. Under medium-high heat, fry tofu in vegetable oil until golden brown. Drain and set aside.
3. In a wok or large saucepan over medium heat, cook pork in ½ cup water until water has evaporated. Push to one side of the pan. Pour olive oil into the wok, and saute garlic until light brown. Add onions and mix with pork and garlic. Saute until onion is translucent.
4. Add oyster sauce. Mix until well combined. Reduce heat to low. Cover pan and simmer until pork is tender. 
5. Add tofu, bell pepper and half of the green onions. Mix well with other ingredients. Season with salt and pepper to suit your taste. Simmer for another 3 minutes.
6. Remove from heat. Transfer to a serving platter and top with remaining green onions. Serve with hot rice.
