Marinated Pork Satay

Right then here we go with the first recipe. This was one of the dishes that inspired this blog. Its a recipe for two. I hope you enjoy.

2 pork steaks (sliced into strips)
100g of green beans (halved in length)
1 green pepper (sliced)
7 cherry tomatoes (halved)
1 clove of garlic (chopped)
2 pinches of Muer (Wood ear)
1 tbsp satay sauce
1 tbsp light soy sauce
1 tsp knorr chicken powder
1 tbsp olive oil

For the marinade:
1 tsp corn flour
1 tsp light soy sauce
1 tsp dark soy sauce
1 tsp sesame oil

1) Mix the marinade ingredients together and pour over the pork strips. They will need to marinate for at least 10 minutes. To prepare the muer place in a bowl of recently boiled water for 10 minutes.

2) When the pork has been marinated for long enough, heat half the olive oil in a pan and fry the pork strips for 5 minutes. Once cooked through remove pork from pan and set aside.

3) Using the same pan heat the rest of the oil, when hot add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds. Then add the tomatoes, beans and pepper. Fry for 3-5 mins until the vegetables lose some of their firmness.

4) Drain the muer and add to the pan with the pork. Add the satay sauce, soy sauce and the chicken powder and stir thoroughly. If the dish looks a bit dry add some water but not too much.

5) Serve immediately with rice.

First off I want to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question which I'd like to ask if you don't mind.
I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing.
I've had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out. I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Cheers!
