Junior Master Chef Pinoy Edition (part 2)

This is  part 2 of my post about Junior Master Chef Pinoy Edition 2011. It’s all about the time that ABSC CBN   came to our house and took a video of me cooking . I was waiting for Hanah, the researcher from ABS-CBN,  to arrive because I can’t wait to cook. She called  my mom’s cellphone and said that they’ll arrive after dinner.

For the audition, I cooked Twice Cooked Pork With Bell Peppers.   A camera was pointing at me and a man was holding the light while Hanah asked me to tell her what I was going to do next. Mom took pictures of me cooking  my audition dish.

I got the recipe from a Chinese recipe book, What’s Cooking Wok & stir-fry. I used pork chop rather than pork leg, as mentioned in the recipe because we couldn’t find any in the grocery.

15 grams of Chinese dried mushrooms
450 grams porkchop
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 onion sliced
1 red bell pepper (deseeded and diced)
1 green bell pepper (deseeded and diced)
1 yellow bell pepper (deseeded and diced)
4 tbsp oyster sauce

  1. Place the mushrooms in a large bowl. Pour over enough boiling water to cover and leave to stand for 20 minutes.
  2. Using a sharp knife trim any excess fat from the Tenderloin. Cut the Tenderloin into thin strips.
  3. Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil. Add the pork to the boiling water and cook for 5 minutes.
  4. Remove the pork from the pan with a slotted spoon and leave to drain thoroughly.
  5. Heat the oil in a large preheated wok. Add the pork to the wok and stir-fry for about 5 minutes.
  6. Remove the mushrooms from the water and leave to drain thoroughly. Roughly chop the mushrooms.
  7. Add the mushrooms, onion and the bell peppers to the wok and stir-fry for 5 minutes.
  8. Stir in the oyster sauce and cook for 2-3 minutes. Transfer to serving bowls and serve immediately.
VARIATION: Use open-cap mushrooms, sliced instead of Chinese mushrooms if you prefer.
They asked my family to come to the dining table and pretend that we are eating dinner, although it was already 8pm.

My siblings, Zia , Oz and Zoe were shy but did it anyway. I am glad that Hanah liked my dish. She said she will call if there are any updates.
