Spiced Pork Chunks

Pork, the other white meat. And oh, so tasty. It picks up flavors very well and is a nice switch up from beef and chicken. This is a simple recipe that can be adapted tons of ways to whatever you need. These chunks can be eaten in a stir-fry, added to a soup, stabbed with a toothpick for a nice appetizer, or simply as is!

Spiced Pork Chunks

The Food
- ~1lb pork sirloin
- 2 teaspoons fresh grated ginger
- 1 teaspoon ground allspice
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 2 tablespoons Olive oil
- White wine

The Prep
Cut pork into chunks (or buy it already cut up, like I did :)
Mix pork, spices, and about a tablespoon of olive oil in a bowl

The Method
Heat remaining olive oil in a wok over medium-high heat
Drop in pork
Stir around so meat gets cook through on all sides
About 4 minutes into the cooking, the spices will start to "burn" on the bottom; now pour yourself a glass of wine, and then throw a big slosh into the wok to deglaze the pan
By the time the wine has mostly cooked off, the pork should be done (little to no pink when cut)

*I removed some pieces that were cooked before I took the picture

Enjoy :)

Final notes on this recipe- I highly suggest using these as an additive to a soup or stew. Otherwise, they are a tad dry. Next time I make them as a stand-alone dish I will marinate them in some oil and soy sauce along with the spices for about an hour before I cook them.
