did a diced pork with potatoes & onions for teban gardens community breakfast this morning on 8.9.2017. ^^

this my 39th friday breakfast community meal at teban gardens community service centre.

i first started doing a community meal dish for teban gardens CSC on 8.1.2016.

the centre was started in 2002 after much effort & challenge by our RI friend who is a pastor of pasir panjang hill brethren church (pphbc) which owns & runs the CSC.

i defrosted, washed clean with salt, then scalded with boiling water to remove scum & clean the pork.

then i left in strainer in fridge to dry.

pork was very tender after steaming.

i fried the pork in oil (or butter) on high heat for 1 minute, stirring well. this is the 回锅肉double-cooked pork method, to have a tender texture & a nice slight external charring flavours.

i set the pork aside.

potatoes & onions 

next i fried sliced onions to soften & added chopped garlic.

then i added small cubed potatoes.  & added some oysters sauce. also added the juice of the pork from the steamer after straining. & reduced.

important not to overcook the potatoes, so it breaks in the middle but still have the bite & not mushy.

the i added back the diced pot & stir-fry for short while, like 30secs.

then i transferred the completed dish to the aluminium carrier.

it was a tasty dish. the folks at teban gardens community service centre loved it. but this quantiy was not quite enough as the size at teban gardens have grown substantially, now about 130pax.

i will cook a bit more next round.
