This recipe yields 3 servings.
- Pork – 500 g
- Soy sauce – 2 tablespoons
- Sugar – 1/2 teaspoon
- Garlic – 2 cloves
- Egg – 1
- Milk – 150 ml
- Flour – 150 grams
- Salt – 1 teaspoon
- Sunflower oil – (for frying) – 2-3 tablespoons
1.Cut the pork (I usually use pork neck) into sticks. The length should be 10-12 cm, and the thickness 1-2 cm. It’s important to ensure that the sticks are evenly thick. Cut the meat across the grain to make it more tender.
2.In a bowl, mix together soy sauce, sugar, and minced garlic.
3.Add the pork sticks to the marinade and mix thoroughly to coat each piece. Place the bowl in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
4.In another bowl, combine the egg and milk, then add flour and salt. Mix well.
5.Heat a frying pan with sunflower oil over medium heat.
6.Dip each piece of pork into the batter (ensuring it is fully coated) and place it in the pan. Avoid overcrowding the pan with too much meat at once, as it may cause the meat to stew in its juices instead of frying.
7.Fry each side for 3-5 minutes. The cooking time depends on the accuracy of the medium heat on your stove. Usually, it takes no longer than 5 minutes to fry.
8.Place the cooked sticks on a paper towel or a wire rack.
9.Serve the dish warm. To be honest, they don’t have time to cool down anyway.
That’s the whole recipe!
Cook with pleasure!
