Tender strips of pork glazed with a sticky, sweet, spicy, garlicky, gingery sauce that is as easy as stirring a few things together in a pan. This fast, soul-satisfying meal is easy enough for rookie cooks, but delicious enough to keep sophisticated cooks and eaters happy. Start marinating your pork loins bones on, you can use spare ribs or prime ribs if you want to. To marinate, add light soy sauce to the pork white rice wine, oyster sauce, baking powder, a generous dash of pepper and mix everything well.
Once you have mixed them well, add 3 tablespoons of cornflour and mix them up well again. Once you are done mixing them, wet them in the fridge and let it chill for at least two hours before cooking them. Heat a wok with oil and start frying the pork over medium heat until 80% cooked or until it turns light golden brown. Once all of them are done frying, increase the heat to high and fry them again until golden brown and they are crisp up nicely. Remove them from the heat and set them aside.
Add a tablespoon of oil in a wok then add sliced ginger and fry them until fragrant then add for cloves of garlic. You don’t have to brown them, you just want the fragrance to be out. Once you can smell the garlic and the ginger, add in one cup of water, honey and one tablespoon of dark soy sauce then mix everything together.
Reduce the heat and let it simmer until the sauce becomes sticky and when it is reduced by half, add the pork. Keep mixing the pork into the sauce until the sauce is almost finished in the pan.
