Ingredients

2 tbsp vegetable oil

400g (14 oz) pork belly, cut into roughly 3cm (just over 1 inch) cubes

2 tsp Sichuan peppercorns, crushed in a mortar and pestle

10 dried red chillies

4 garlic cloves, roughly chopped

4cm (1½ inch) piece ginger, peeled, julienned

2 green capsicums (bell peppers), deseeded, cut into bite-sized pieces

2 spring onions (scallions), cut into batons

1 tbsp chilli crisp (or to taste)

 

Stir-fry sauce:

2 tbsp soy sauce

1 tbsp Chinese Shaoxing wine

¼ tsp sugar

Steps
  • Step 1

    To make the stir-fry sauce, combine the ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.

  • Step 2

    Heat the vegetable oil in a wok over high heat. Add the pork and stir-fry for 3 minutes or until the pork is almost cooked through and golden at the edges.

  • Step 3

    Add the crushed peppercorns to the pork, as well as the chillies, garlic and ginger. Give everything a toss to combine and stir-fry for another 2 minutes until lovely and fragrant.

  • Step 4

    Next, add in the capsicum and stir-fry for another 2 minutes or until the capsicum is just tender (but still crunchy).

  • Step 5

    Pour the stir-fry sauce around the edges of the wok, then toss all the ingredients together until combined. Add in the spring onion. Stir-fry for a minute until slightly softened and the pork is cooked through.

  • Step 6

    Transfer to a serving bowl and drizzle with chilli crisp or chilli oil. Serve immediately.
