Stir Fried Roasted Pork With Leeks


I defrosted a strip of siew yoke (roasted pork) which had been sitting in the freezer. I could have put it into the oven to heat up but I find that it tends to get a bit dry.

Usually this is what I would do with fresh roasted siew yoke with crispy skin :

1. Eat neat from the styrofoam box. Heaven!
2. Make  Siew Yoke Kerabu
4. Pair it with Strawberries

Then I remembered seeing recipes that use leftover siew yoke and one that stood out was the one that is stir fried with leeks.


So that's what I did with it. I did not refer to any recipes because I figured that I can't go wrong with garlic, light soya sauce and oyster sauce. 


The siew yoke by itself was already full of flavors. So this makes for a very quick and easy stir fry. I also added a few slices of red chilies since I had some in the fridge.

  2. That's what I would do with leftover siew yoke too. In fact, whenever I see this dish...with either siew yoke or lap cheong....at "chap farn' stalls...I will take....but those have more leeks than meat (unlike yours, haha!) ;D

  3. My favourite! Siew yok chau suen! When my mum or mil cooks this, I'll jump like a happy baby! I'll cook stir-fry veggies with leftover siew yok, or fry rice with them.. But with suen, I can eat a lot (even though I don't like veggies), suen is special punya, haha..

  7. I always loved anything with siew yoke! Best if roasted till skin is crispy hard & crunchy!

    I am always amazed by the number of things sitting inside your freezer like a bank's vault. Can you snap a photo to show us other loots before they all expire?? Muahahahaha

  9. Hi Phong Hong, great minds think alike. This dish is my late FIL's favourite. So nice with a bowl of plain porridge. Just bought some leeks for stir like yours but I am using pork belly syabu-syabu.

  10. Hi Phong Hong,
    I've ever stir-fried roasted pork with leeks but my big kids didn't like leeks so I've to use french beans, asparagus or kai lan. I would definitely prefer leeks ... yours so yummy!

    1. Hi Karen! Yes, with other veges also very good. I also want to try it with french beans.

  11. Yeah, you can't go wrong with garlic, soy sauce and oyster sauce. This is how the restaurants do it also (minus the MSG lah of course). If my mom, she will also add onions >.<

    1. Hah! I also wanted to add onions initially but I thought that would make it too oniony since leeks come from the same family. I want to high 5 your mom :D
