Easy BBQ Pork Belly Stir Fry Recipe.

While I make excellent Chinese Crispy Skin BBQ Pork Belly, I started doing this stir fry recipe after having leftover BBQ Pork from Chinese BBQ joints I usually visit. I purposely purchase a bit extra, knowing that I’d either make a stir fry or a BBQ Pork Fried Recipe with leftovers.

1 1/2 tablespoon Veg oil
2 cups cubed Chinese BBQ Pork
1/2 lb broccoli (trimmed)
2 medium bell pepper (chunky)
1 small zucchini (sliced thick)
1 tablespoon fish sauce
1 tablespoon oyster sauce
1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
2 cloves garlic (finely chopped)
1 teaspoon ginger (grated)
2 tablespoon water (divided)
1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
1 1/2 tablespoon Mushroom flavored Soy Sauce
1 medium onion (sliced)
3 scallions (chopped)
2 Thai (Bird’s Eye) peppers

Notes! Please use the video below to follow along as much more about the recipe is discussed there. Should you not have Chinese BBQ Pork, you may use leftover Chicken (oven roasted or BBQ) or any protein you may have on hand. Additionally, if you want to keep this meat free, you can simply go about the recipe without the inclusion of any meat.

Start by prepping all of the ingredients. With the leftover BBQ Pork Belly, I cut it into smaller pieces.

Heat the veg oil in a wide pan or wok on a medium flame, then add the pieces of pork.

Cook for about 2-3 minutes to render out some of the fat from the pork pieces, which will add a lovely flavor to the finished dish (hints of Chinese five spice). Be mindful that the fat from the skin may splatter as they heat up.

Add the peppers, zucchini and broccoli pieces and stir well.

Turn the heat down to med/low and cook for about 4-5 minutes.

In a bowl add the ginger, garlic, water and the different sauces to create a flavorful combination.

At this point add the sliced onion and hot peppers to the wok and stir well. Give it about 2 minutes, then pour in that wicked sauce we just made and stir to coat everything.

Toss in the scallions and cook for another 2-3 minutes, depending on how ‘cooked’ you like your vegetables. The remaining salt from the pieces of pork (which can be a bit salty) along with the sodium content of the sauces we used, will be enough for this stir fry. However, you may taste it at the end and adjust to your liking.

As a lil fella on the islands the stir fry from the different Chinese restaurants in my area (San Fernando), always included a combo of cabbage and bean sprouts for the crunch near the end.
