GINGERED PORK WITH LEEKS

Simply Ming One-Pot Meals
by Ming Tsai

I fell in love with leeks the first time I visited Paris. Wok-cooked, this wonderful member of the onion family has a bite and sweetness that other cooking methods don't deliver. Pork is a natural companion, as its subtle sweetness enhances that of the leeks—and vice versa. Heat from ginger and chile helps to make this a completely winning dish.
Serves 4


INGREDIENTS

    · 2 tablespoons organic Worcestershire sauce
    · 1 tablespoon minced garlic
    · 1 tablespoon sesame oil
    · 2 serrano chiles, 1 minced, 1 sliced thin for garnish
    · 2 tablespoons naturally brewed soy sauce
    · 1 pound pork loin, sliced as thin as possible
    · 3 tablespoons grapeseed or canola oil
    · 2 tablespoons peeled finely sliced ginger
    · 3 large leeks, white parts, halved, cut into strips, washed and dried (see Ming's Tip)
    · Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
    · 50-50 White and Brown Rice, for serving


DIRECTIONS

1. In a medium bowl, combine the Worcestershire, garlic, sesame oil, minced chile, and soy sauce, and blend. Add the pork, stir gently to coat it, and marinate for 30 minutes.

2. Drain the pork. Heat a wok over high heat. Add 2 tablespoons of the oil and swirl to coat the pan. When the oil is hot, add the pork and stir-fry until cooked through, 5 to 6 minutes. Transfer the pork to a plate and set aside.

3. Add the remaining oil to the wok, swirl, and when the oil is hot, add the ginger. Stir-fry 20 seconds, add the leeks, and season with salt and pepper. Stir-fry until the leeks are soft, about 2 minutes. Return the pork to the wok and heat through, 2 to 3 minutes.

4. Transfer to a serving bowl, garnish with the chile slices, and serve with the rice.

Ming's Tip:
To cut the leeks into thin strips easily, halve the white parts length-wise and discard about one third of the interior. Flatten against your cutting surface and slice. Fill the bowl of a salad spinner with water, add the leeks, and swish with your hands to remove any sand. Transfer the leeks to the spinner insert, dump out the water, and rinse the bowl well. Spin the leeks dry.
