Old Yellow Cucumber (Lao Huang Gua in chinese) is the one that we always boil soup with. Was getting tired of the soup version, so decided to stir fry it. Gina told me briefly that her mom cooked this with tang hoon but today, I ran out of it. So decided to created this dish instead. =)

Hope you all like it!
This is what the cucumber looks like...




Ingredients:
500gm old yellow cucumber
200gm pork loin (cut into strips)
1 fresh red chilli (sliced)
1/2 pc of leek (sliced thinly)
1tsp chopped garlic
1tbsp oyster sauce
A pinch of sugar
400ml water (Or enough to cover all the cucumbers)
1tbsp extra virgin olive oil (u can use other types of cooking oil)

Marinade for pork:
1/2 tsp sugar
1tbsp sesame oil
1tsp soy sauce
A pinch of pepper

Method:
1. Peel off skin of old yellow cucumber, de-seed & slice or shred them into strips, soak in salt water for 30 mins, drain & set aside.
