Crispy Five Spice Pork Recipe

Crispy Five Spice Pork Recipe

Ingredients :

450 g lean pork

1/2 teaspoon five-spice powder

1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch

3 slices fresh root ginger

3 cloves garlic

1 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce

1 teaspoon caster sugar

2 teaspoons sea salt

1 1/2 teaspoons Szechwan peppercorns, pounded

Vegetable Oil for deep-frying

Salt to taste

 

Method :

Slice the lean pork into thick strips, then sprinkle and rub with the salt, five-spice powder and cornstarch. Set aside to stand for 30 minutes. Chop the garlic and ginger finely. Heat a wok with oil and when hot, fry half the pork strip over moderate heat for 3.5 minutes. Drain and place in a bowl. Fry the remaining pork strips for 3 1/2 minutes, then drain and add to the bowl. Add the soy sauce and sugar to the pork, mixing well. Pour away the oil to use for other purposes, leaving 2 tablespoons. Re-heat the wok or pan. When hot, stir in the ginger, garlic, sea salt and pepper over medium heat for 25 seconds. Pour the once-fried and seasoned pork into the pan. Turn and stir around quickly so that the pork is evenly coated by the spicy ingredients. Turn, toss and stir for 1 minute. Transfer to a heated serving dish. Serve hot with white rice.
