Pork and Potatoes in Sweet Black Sauce


This is another ‘home invention’ because I’ve never seen/heard/ate it anywhere else before. It’s not my invention, but my grandmother’s – so you can guarantee that it is good! In fact, it is very good and it mixes up ingredients that people probably have at home – potato – duh! Some time back, I made a chicken version of it too, but tried cooking the potatoes before frying them. It didn’t taste any different, so I’d say either way works. πŸ™‚ The gravy is great, so cook up some rice with it!!

Ingredients (serves 2)

  • 1/2 pound pork butt, cut into small cubes
  • 2 medium potatoes, deskinned and diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1/2 tablespoon dark soy sauce
  • 1/2 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon cooking wine (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil
  • water


Boil some water in a pot and cook the potatoes in the pot until they are easy to pierce, but still keep their shape.

In a hot pan, add oil and garlic, and fry until the garlic is fragrant.

Add pork pieces and fry until they are half-cooked.


Add potatoes, soy sauce, dark soy sauce, oyster sauce, cooking wine (optional), and sesame oil.

Fry until evenly combined.
