Spicy Meat & Potato

My Cousin made this dish and posted a picture on her FB page couple of days ago, it was my grandma's recipe and my aunt's favorite she said. I have no recollection of this as grandma's but another dish with fermented toucu and tofu, which I intended to make and post soon.

Thanks to my cousin for her sharing and the recipe, it has been really cold and snowy lately in NJ, recreating this spicy dish as lunch not only warm up the body, it also reminds me of my jovial and happy go lucky grandma. I hope that she is all well up there wherever she is now, and hope that one day we will meet again .......

100 gm of lean pork(cut into strips)Marinate with a little salt and pepper powder
1 potato around 100 gm in weight
1/2 medium size onion

2 tbsp  Sambal Belachan  or Vegetarian Sambal Paste
A little salt


2 tbsp  Sriracha Chili Paste
A little salt
A little sugar
Some Vinegar

1. Peel potato and cut into 1 cm thick sticks,  marinate the meat with salt and pepper powder.

2. Heat up 1/2 cup of cooking oil and deep fried potato sticks until crunchy. Dish out and drips oil. Make sure the potato sticks are dry before deep frying to prevent them sticking together.

3. Leave 1 tbsp of oil in the wok/cookware, stir in onion and meat, continue cooking until the meat changes color. Add the sambal/chili paste and about 2 tbsp of water,continue cooking for few minutes. 

4. Add potato and season with salt. If Sriracha chili sauce is being used, season with sugar, salt and vinegar. Continue to cook for few more minutes before serving.
