Plum Sauce BBQ Pork (Char Siew) Fettuccine


My attempt in fusion =). Whenever I can, I try to buy roast pork in bulk and freeze it. It’s something that my grandmother do and I learned that from her. Good tasting roast meat is really versatile and gives a “buzz” to any dish. It comes in really handy whenever we are tight on time but needed a good meal to ease of the tension of the day.

I realized that plum sauce is a good addition to the pantry as well. It serves as a good base and provide abit of tang to pastas or even as a sauce for wraps. So one Tuesday evening (Tuesdays are pasta days!), I raided the freezer and came up with this combination.

Plum Sauce BBQ Pork Fettuccine (serves 4)
250grams of fettucine
200 grams of char siew or roast pork fillet
3-4 tablespoons of plum sauce
2 cloves of crushed garlic
1 floret of broccoli chopped
1 cup of peas
1/4 cup of chicken stock
Season

1) Cook fettuccine in boiling salted water. Drain and keep warm.

2) Saute garlic in a pan. Add char siew and cook till warm through. Add broccoli, peas and chicken stock and cook till done. Add plum sauce. Season. Toss fettuccine through. Serve warm!

  6. The char siew looks a bit weird. Do you slice it on your own? My mom teach me to cut vertical across the long lines you see on the pork fillet.This will improve the texture and easier to bite on.Hmm…you got what I mean?
