“Tofu and watercress are a great, flavorful combination, and a wholesome one, too! My teenage boys who don't like greens actually love this dish. Red chile garlic paste can be substituted for the ground black pepper.” - by Keani
Original recipe yields 8 servings
- Place pork in a wok or skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir until pork is browned on all sides, about 5 minutes. Stir in the soy sauce, water, ginger, and black pepper; bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium, cover, and simmer until meat is tender, about 40 minutes.
- Stir in the watercress and bean sprouts, and continue to simmer until tender yet still crisp, about 10 minutes more. Mix in the tofu, cover, and simmer 5 minutes more.

I also a..." See moredded round onion, bok choy chinese cabbage along with the watercress and bean sprouts. In all the years I made this, my meat was sometimes a little on the tough side, by simmering in the sauce for 40 minutes per your instructions,before adding all the veggies, OMG!!!, IT WAS SOOO TENDER!! I now know what I was doing wrong all these years. Thank you sooooo much Keani. I love these types of recipes because they're inspiring and you can pretty much play with it. If I had shiitake mushrooms, they would have went in too. This is great over rice. Yummmy"
