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
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!
