Twice Cooked Pork

1 pound lean boneless pork (such as shoulder or butt), in 1 piece
1 tablespoon dry sherry
1 thin, quarter-size slice fresh ginger, crushed with the side of a cleaver
3 scallions (including tops)
2 teaspoons hot bean sauce or 2 small dried hot red chiles, crumbled
4 teaspoons sweet bean sauce or hoisin sauce
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon sugar
2 small green bell peppers or 1 each small green and red bell pepper
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger

Place pork, sherry and ginger slice in a 2-quart pan. Cut 1 of the scallions in half crosswise and add to pork, then add enough water to barely cover meat. Bring to a simmer; cover and simmer until meat is tender when pierced (about 45 minutes). Lift meat from broth and refrigerate until cold.

Cut meat into 1 1/2-inch square pieces about 1/8 inch thick. In a bowl, combine hot bean sauce (or red chiles), sweet bean sauce, soy sauce and sugar.

Seed bell peppers and cut into 1 inch squares; cut remaining 2 scallions into 1-inch lengths.

Place a wok over high heat; when wok is hot, add 2 tablespoons of the oil. When oil is hot, add bell peppers and stir fry for 1 1/2 minutes, adding a few drops of water if wok appears dry. Sprinkle with salt and stir once, then remove peppers from wok.

Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil to wok. When oil begins to heat, add garlic and minced ginger and stir once; then add pork and stir-fry for 1 minute. Add bean sauce mixture and toss until pork is coated with sauce. Return bell peppers to wok along with onion. Stir for 30 seconds to heat through.

Makes 3 or 4 servings.
