Crispy Fried Pork (Xiao Su Rou 小酥肉)

Ingredients:

lean pork 250g

starch 80g

eggs 2

salt 1/2 tsp

five spice powder  1/2 tsp

 

  1. Cut pork into slices or strips. About 3-5 mm.
  2. In a bowl, add in starch (sweet potato starch would be the best choice, but I tried with corn starch and turned out not bad.) and beat in eggs. whisk till fully combined.
  3. Add in salt and spice powder. Stir well.
  4. Add pork slices into the batter. Stir to let them be fully covered with batter.
  5. Deep fry in oil till golden brown.
  6. To make them crispier, heat the oil and fry again.

 

Fried pork can be used to cook other dishes, like stew or sweet & sour pork. It’s a very popular dish during Chinese New Year in some part of China.
