Piggy in the woods
(Pork with mushrooms)
recipe dedicated for my friend from UK J
I’m not a big enthusiast of fat pork, but sometimes… why not?
So thisstory is about poor little porky, that strayed in the woods.
Big Bad Bear caught a porky, and decided to eat with anything he have around.
Unfortunately there was only wild garlic, spring onions and – as always in theforest – some kind of mushrooms.
Bear decided howewer, that it will be enough.
Cooking: 20-30 minutes
- pork meat (remember – this bought with the skin)
- little flat black mushrooms (dried)
- little, long, white mushrooms (fresh)
- green onions
- noodles as “filling” (not important)
- dark soy sauce
- wash black mushrooms, then soak it in boiling water (takes about 10 minutes if You use small and thin mushrooms, for bigger ones – it can be 15-20 minutes of “hot bath”), You can use soy sauce in bath – to add extra flavour
- soak noodles in hot water for 5 minutes, then rinse with cold water, and letit to drain from excess water
- chop garlic (fine)
- chop green onions (no matter what, can be even 3-5 cm long,
- wash white mushrooms in cold water, then let it drain a little
- You can separate white mushrooms (as I did) or leave it with “groups”), because I wanted to mix it with noodles – I made it separate
- cut the pork meat in even bars (long cubes) ... or use previously prepared
- fry it until golden outside, and fat is semi-transparent (at list 10-15minutes) - I used pork meat preserved in garlic, so You see some garlic on this pictures too. If You want to absolutelly avoid any trace of bitter taste - remofe garlic from meat before frying (can rinse with the water and dry on paper). I don't care about it - so I left it.
- add white mushrooms, and fry stirring, to let them absorb taste from pork (1minute)
- add black mushrooms, and fry for 1-2 minutes
- and garlic, fry stirring for 1-2 minutes (let garlic to add its taste to other ingredients)
- add noodles and some of green onions, mix it all together, add some soy sauce, and let it simmer for few minutes until noodles are cooked. If there will be not enough moisture – add a little of boiled water (don’t use cold at this stage!)
