This is a classic Chinese dish. Bitter melon is stuffed with a delicious mixture of minced pork, then pan-fried and simmered with a garlic and black bean sauce. Serve with freshly cooked rice.
- Stuff the bitter melon as much as possible. as the meat will shrink when it's cooked. - Add some water when stir-frying the pork. This will give the pork a fluffier texture.
Bitter melons, dried shrimp and black bean and garlic sauce may be purchased in Indian/South Asian/Oriental speciality stores.
