Stir-frying is one of those quick, simple dinners. If you don't have the ingredients I have, other vegetables will also work to enhance the dish. Red peppers, leeks and even spinach would be good choices if you can't get to an Asian food store.
- Heat 2 Tbsp oil in a wok or frying pan to a high heat. Fry the pork in batches until golden and cooked through. Set aside.
- Heat the remaining oil, add the chilli, ginger, garlic chives and chilli paste then cook for 3 or 4 minutes. Add the mushrooms and choy sum. Continue to cook until the vegetables are just cooked.
- Add the pork back to the vegetables along with the soy and kecap manis. Toss to combine.
- Serve hot on rice.
