Sizzling "pork" in plum sauce

On Saturday night, it was time for more Asian-inspired food. It had to be quick, because I got home from work late and wanted to get dinner on the table in a hurry.

We had Lamyong vegan roast "pork" in plum sauce, with simple stir-fried vegies and plain steamed rice. The vegies were simply carrot, broccoli and onion quickly stir fried with some sesame oil and a splash of soy sauce.

Sizzling "Pork" in plum sauce

Small amount of neutral cooking oil, eg rice bran oil
Lamyong vegan BBQ "pork"
2 cm fresh ginger minced or very finely sliced
1 small onion
Commercial plum sauce 175 ml
1/2 capsicum (green would be better, but I only had red)
1 small capsicum
pepper to taste (optional)
  1. Slice pork and vegetables into bite sized slices.
  2. Heat oil in a cast iron pan. Use a standard skillet, if you don't have a cast iron pan.
  3. Put oil into pan and fry on medium high heat for 1-2 minutes.
  4. Add "pork" and ginger. Fry for a few minutes.
  5. Add remaining vegetables and fry for 1-2 minutes.
  6. Add sauce. Fry for 1 minute.
  7. Taste and add optional pepper if you like a little heat.
  8. Serve sizzling in the pan.
For a very quick dinner, this was a big hit. Mr Brisvegan (an Omni) said that it was "very, very nice." The children all had seconds.
