Cucumber and pork stirfry

I always love a quick stirfry for dinner; especially when its filled with umami and a perfect pairing with rice. Many of you probably have not tried stirfrying cucumbers before but it’s always been a favorite of mine. I love the sweetness and slight tender crispness it yields. In order to achieve that you must salt the cucumbers in advance to exude some of the liquid so your dish does not turn watery. Before I do anything else, I deseed then slice the cucumbers and place into a bowl with a heaping 1/2 tsp of kosher salt. Give it a small massage then I allow it to sit for at least 30 minutes while I prep the rest of the ingredients and my meal. Here I’ve stirfried it with ground pork, Chinese sausage, green onions, ginger, garlic, fish sauce, dark soy sauce and light soy sauce. It’s a perfect dish paired with rice.
