Sliced Pork and Squid with Chinese Broccoli

Since I started cooking more than one year ago, but I have not cook pork so far. Hubby is a big fan of pork but I'm not. I felt that he's deprived of pork lately, so I decided to cook a "porky" dish for him.

This was a simple dish, but the cutting and slicing took up most of the time.

Sliced Pork with Chopped Garlic Recipe

Ingredients A:
Lean meat
Spring onions
2-3 slices ginger
1 tomato

Ingredients B:
5 tbsp chopped garlic
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp vinegar
1 tbsp soy sauce

1) Parboil pork in a pot of water with spring onions, ginger and rice wine added in it. Slice the pork thinly when it's cool enough to handle.
2) Dice the tomato and spring onions, arrange on a plate and sprinkle with extra virgin olive oil.
3) Arrange the sliced pork around the tomato and spring onions.
4) Mix all Ingredients B and pour on sliced pork. Serve.

Another dish that I prepared was squid with chinese broccoli. The sauce supposed to look orangey, but I accidentally added in too much dark soy sauce, hence the following colour. It tasted ok, but I think it would look better with an orange coloured sauce.
