Easy Asian Pork Loin Recipe
- Wok or deep skillet
- Mixing bowl
- 1 lb pork loin
- 2 tbsp soy sauce
- 1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
- 1 tbsp ginger root, grated 1 inch cube
- 1 clove garlic, grated
- Mix soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, ginger root and garlic in a medium size bowl.
- Slice pork loin into 1.5 inch long strips.
- Stir pork loin into the liquid and allow it to marinade for 30 minutes.
- Heat wok or pan over high heat (use a pan that's suitable to high heat like this one)
- Cook meat in three batches so as not to overcrowd the pan.
- Cook the meat in batches so that it fries. If you crowd the pan it will steam cook and not have the same flavor.
- Add 1/2 to 1 tsp of chili flakes for a spicier taste.
- For a sweeter version, add 1/4 cup of orange juice and a tsp of grated orange peel to the leftover liquid. Let it simmer and reduce, then toss with the pork for a sweet, orange pork recipe.
- Serve with a side of rice and steamed broccoli.
- If you want a sauce for your dish, add 1/4 cup of chicken stock with a tsp. of cornstarch to the liquid left in the pan. Bring to a boil to “activate” the corn starch and then reduce heat and stir to thicken.
