.: 簡介 Info:.

preserved turnip goes by many names, preserve radish, salted turnip, salted radish etc. They come whole, shredded or ground. Look for them in non-refrigerated section, possibly with other dry goods. They come in small plastic bags. You can see the brownish turnip through the plastic bag. The color brown is like paper bag brown. There should be no water in the bag. It is ready to be used, no rehydration necessary. It’s not necessary to keep it in the refrigerator. But most Americans, I notice, keep everything in the fridge. The turnip would certainly last longer in the fridge.

.: 材料 Ingredients :.
1- Chicken broth, 1/2 cane, 150 ml
2- Hot water, 50ml

3- Sugar, 1/2 tsp

.: 做法 Directions :.  
Step 1:
Marinade the Pork with "Tony's Marinade Method" for 15 minutes.  Meanwhile, blanch the bean sprout for 30 seconds.  Drain it well and put it aside.  Heat the non-sticky pan with 1/2 tbsp of oil over high heat until hot.  Stir-fry the pork until done.  Put it in a sieve over a bowl and put it aside.
Step 2: 
Clean the pan and dry it well. Heat it again with 1/2 tbsp of oil over medium-high heat until hot. Add in the garlic, shallot, preserved radish, dried shrimps and onion with 1/3 tsp of salt. Stir-fry the ingredients until the onion is soft (about 2 minutes).  Add in the potato and sauce mixture.  Bring the sauce to boil.  Cover and simmer until the potato is soft (about 5 minutes).  Remove the lid and stir-fry all ingredient until the sauce in the pan is evaporated

Step 3:

Add in the cooked pork, bell pepper.  Stir-fry the ingredients for 2 minutes until the bell pepper is hot.  Add in the sesame oil, bean sprout, thai basil leaves and fish sauce.   Mix it well and cook for another minute.  Dish it up and serve it hot.
.: 小貼士 Cook's notes :.
1- If the pan has a lot of sauce remaining after simmered the potato, you can remove all sauce in the pan.  Then stir-fry the ingredient until dry.
2- It is better to use add the sesame oil and fish sauce last in order to keep its flavor.
3- It is better to pan-fry the pork before stir-frying it.  If it is smelly, you can add some chinese cook wine which help to remove the smell. 
4- Be aware not overcook the bean sprout or it will lose the crispy texture.
