How to make this recipe

  1. Heat the oil in a medium saucepan. Add the pork, garlic and onion and season with salt and pepper. Cook over high heat, stirring occasionally, until the pork is no longer pink, about 4 minutes. Add the chili paste and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Add the stock and bring to a boil. Cover and cook over low heat for 15 minutes.

  2. Add the zucchini to the saucepan and cook over moderate heat until almost tender, about 2 minutes. Add the tofu and simmer for 2 minutes longer. Add the scallions and fresh chile and simmer for 1 minute longer. Ladle into bowls and serve with steamed white rice on the side.
