JAPANESE STYLE FRIED PORK WITH ONIONS

Love this kind of simple and easy recipes generously shared over you-tube.  Only a few steps to prepare, yet it is appetising and satisfactory for a meal with rice.  I believe even a novice cook can recreate this dish to savour in the comfort of their home.

The meat slices are tender and tastes savoury, sourish and sweet.  The crunchy and naturally sweet yellow onions blend well with the meat.

You can use pork neck shoulder meat, pork tenderloin or thin slices of streaky pork belly to cook this dish.

Ingredients

200 gm thin slices streaky pork belly [without skin] – cut into 3 inch lengths

some chopped spring onions
