Alan Tobey likes to experiment with fusion dishes that are practical for the home cook, such as this pork chili flavored with Chinese seasonings.

How to Make It

Step 1

In a bowl, mix cornstarch, chili powder, five spice, and salt. Add pork and mix to coat.

Step 2

Pour oil into a 4- to 6-quart pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add pork mixture and stir often until browned on all sides, about 4 minutes. With a slotted spoon, transfer pork to bowl. Add green onions, chilies, garlic, fermented black beans, and ginger to pan. Stir until fragrant, about 1 minute.

Step 3

Return pork to pan and add 1 cup water, kidney beans, pinto beans, and tomatoes. Bring to a simmer, then lower heat, cover, and simmer (do not let boil), stirring occasionally, until pork is tender when pierced, about 25 minutes.

Step 4

Ladle into bowls and top with sliced green onion tops, if desired.
