Stir fried pork and veggies in hoisin and oyster sauce

Happy December! This month is extra special because this is the first time that Mark and I would spend Christmas as husband and wife. I can truly say that my cooking skills have improved and being married for almost a year has made me realize that even if cooking is one of my passions, there would come a time that I would feel tired doing it, most especially if you're running of of dishes to prepare for your family. There would come a time that I'd settle for fried foods, or ready to cook dishes, but cooking from scratch is really different. It may require more time and patience with the trial and error phase, but it is really fulfilling if you know that your family loves the dishes you prepare for them. So if there would come a time that you feel like giving up on cooking, just practice! I'm telling you, learning how to cook will make you survive. ;)

Ok, enough with the words of wisdom, let me proceed with the recipe.

What you need:

1/2 kilo of pork kasim, sliced
1 can of pineapple chunks
Dash of salt
Blanched broccoli
1 medium carrot, sliced in to 1/2 inch
1 red bell pepper, sliced
1/2 tablespoon hoisin sauce
1 tablespoon of soy sauce
1 tablespoon of oyster sauce
1 medium onion, sliced
1 knob if ginger
Garlic, minced
Canola cooking oil

What you need to do:

* Marinate the pork with the pineapple juice and salt for 30 minutes.
* Heat the oil, cook the ginger until it turns brown. Add the onions then garlic.
* Add the pork, cook until it turns medium brown. Add 3 tablespoons of the pineapple marinade as you cook it, so it absorbs the sweetness of the juice,
* Add the carrots, red bell pepper and blanched broccoli. Let it simmer for 5 minutes.
* Add the pineapple chunks. Simmer for another 2 minutes.
* Serve while hot. Happy eating!
