Chinese Style Crispy Pork

Yasmin the ‘Yellow Sticker fridge’ did it again. Is naming fridges going a bit far? No, clearly not! 400G of Pork strips for 89p. I suspected this was probably shoulder so I marinated it for several hours just in case it was tough as old boots. Thankfully it wasn’t when I’d finished with it.


Pork Strips
Soy Sauce
Fish Sauce
Chilly flakes
Soda Water
Salt & Pepper


(1) In a bowl pour the Soy Sauce and Fish Sauce over the Pork and fix well. Leave covered in the fridge for a couple of hours.
(2) Sprinkle Chilli flakes over the Pork and mix well.
(3) Add a little Cornflour to the marinade and stir to thicken.
(4) Add Cornflour to two bowls. One in to flour the Pork and the second is for a batter.
(5) In the batter bowl season the Cornflour with Salt and Pepper and add enough Soda Water to make a still batter.
(6) Pre-heat the fryer to 180c.
(7) Dredge the meat strips in small batches in the dry Cornflour and then better.
(8) Fry in batches until they float and are golden brown.
(9) Brain on kitchen paper before serving.

We made a stir fry to go over Rice Noodles with the crispy Pork over the top dressed with a few Chives.
