Appetizing Sichuan Mashed Garlic Pork 美味蒜泥白肉

Sichuan Pork with mashed garlic 蒜泥白肉秘方

This dish is more like an appetizer, the regular Sichuanese version is hot and spicy. So I make a little adjustment of my own for more flexibility and also suggestion of 2 types of serving methods. Method 1 is the common serving and method 2 is more towards the salad method. This is an idea of how to make this delicious dish, you could be more creative, add black fungus, roll with shredded carrot, and lots more possible combinations!
