Chinese Shredded Pork with Peppers – Marinated shredded pork stir fried with peppers is a delicious way to get some protein and veggies for lunch or dinner!

Shredding pork Chinese style

When you heard shredded pork, you probably think of pulled pork. However, in a lot of Chinese dishes, shredded pork is when you slice or julienne the pork in to thin strips.

This method really helps the dish become flavorful as there’s more area of the pork to touch the marinade/sauce/seasoning.

You could just take a good sharp knife and slice it in to thin strips, however, if you find that challenging, you can also try freezing the meat first. When you remove from freezer, and allow it to defrost enough to cut through, the slightly frozen pork will be easier to slice.

How to make Chinese shredded pork with peppers?

This is how we make this at my house. Sometimes we use bell peppers, and sometimes we also use sliced, seeded, and washed jalapenos!

Surprisingly not as hot as you’d think – but if you’re not a fan of spicy foods, I would steer clear of this. If you ARE a fan of it, I recommend you trying that, and also check out my Jalapeno Chicken Stir Fry because it is so delicious!

On to how to make Chinese shredded pork with peppers:

First gather your ingredients

  • 1/2 lb pork (I used tenderloin), thinly sliced/shredded
  • Marinade:
    • 1 tbsp soy sauce
    • 2 tsp cornstarch
    • 2 tsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 inch ginger, julienned
  • 2 cups of sliced peppers
  • Salt, as desired

Prepare your ingredients:

Slice pork tenderloin very thinly so that they are ‘shreds’. Also, slice ginger and peppers thinly.

Marinade the pork:

In a large bowl, add all the marinade ingredients (oil, cornstarch, soy sauce) with pork and mix well. Let sit for at least 15 minutes.

Cooking:

Heat up a cooking pan or wok, and add cooking oil and sliced ginger on medium high heat for about 30 seconds or until it begins to sizzle, and then add the sliced pork.

Stir fry for about 2 minutes or until the pork has just browned. Remove pork and ginger from the cooking pan and set aside, but keeping the oil still in the pan.

Add sliced peppers in to pan, and stir fry for about 2 minutes or until it begins to soften.

Re-add the pork and ginger back in to pan, along with salt as desired, and stir fry for about another 2 minutes.

Remove from heat and serve!
