henever someone asks me for an easy tip to get food on the table fast, I always tell them to keep some thinly sliced pork in the freezer. It’s perfect for quick meals because it cooks in no time and can be turned into a wide variety of dishes. Plus, it’s your best bet when it comes to value for money.
Meat that has been sliced thinly for yakiniku or sukiyaki is a good option, too. You can also buy what is usually referred to in the groceries as “pork steak,” which is usually a boneless cutlet. For this dish, I like to slice the pork steak into thin strips so that the meat cooks even faster. You can also pound the meat with a meat mallet to cut the cooking time some more.
You can marinate the meat and sauté it just as it is, but you can also add vegetables to the dish to make it a one-pot meal for the family. Feel free to substitute the baby corn and peas with broccoli, cauliflower, snow peas (sitsaro), red bell peppers, mushrooms, or a combination of your favorite vegetables. Serve this with steamed white rice on the side and you’ve got dinner sorted out!
Life often has us juggling multiple tasks, but a simple, satisfying recipe like this reminds me that I can still feed my family well even when things get hectic. I hope this helps you on busy days!
