Pork with Oyster Mushrooms


Ingredients:
1 lb pork sirloin, diced
12 oz oyster mushrooms, sliced
6 cloves of garlic, minced
4 green onions chopped
1 onion sliced
1 cup chicken or pork stock
2 tablespoons oyster sauce
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 teaspoons sesame oil
pepper


for the marinade:
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon dark soy sauce
1 tablespoon shaoxing wine
1 teaspoon ginger juice
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 shallot, minced

Directions:
Place the pork in a resealable bag. Add the marinade ingredients and marinate for about 15-20 minutes. Meanwhile, heat the canola oil in a large wok. Saute the onions and garlic until fragrant about 2 minutes. Add the pork (with the marinade) and stir fry until the pork is just browned on all sides. Add the mushrooms, broth, soy sauce, oyster sauce, and sesame oil. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the pork and mushrooms are tender and fully cooked. Add green onions, remove from heat and stir. Serve with hot rice.

My thoughts:
I love oyster mushrooms. They are so meaty and flavorful, they could be a meal by themselves. However, they also pair wonderfully with pork; better than they do with beef or chicken in my opinion. In this dish the pork is marinaded and then cooked in the marinade and flavorful sauce which really infuses the pork with flavor.
