step 1: bursting fragrance

Pour half cup of vegetable oil into frying pan, put on Whizlid on the pan without top glass lid. Turn heat to the highest point. Wait until oil is about boiling point (some thin white smoke comes out) throw in the mixture of ground pork with bursting fragrance. Stir fry from the big opening for about 10 seconds. Make sure the ground pork bits are all separate.

step 2: adding vegetable

Throw in the red bell pepper pieces into the sizzling pan and stir fry (from the big opening) for another several seconds and make sure the red bell pepper bits are well mixed with the ground pork bits.

step 3: adding Doufu

Pour doufu from the big opening of the Whizlid into the pan. Pour in the spicy flavor juice. Then stir fry lightly (do not crush the Doufu cubes) just to mix everything inside well enough.

step 4: steaming

Put on the top glass lid and close the top vent and wait for a few minutes until the juice starts to boil. Remove the glass lid and again stir fry lightly for half minute and make sure nothing is stuck at the bottom of the pan.

step 5: done!

Turn off the heat, and remove the food and put in a dish and

Dinner is ready!
