So good with fried pork with an asian sauce dressing. Easy to do as well!! You can buy everything at a regular grocery store. :)
4 cups jasmine rice
about 7 cups water
1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
800 g of pork loin
1 cup corn flour or potato flour
2 cups cooking oil
1 cup hoisin
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tsp sesame oil
1 tablespoon water
Cook the rice.
Cut the pork into thin pieces, then mix the pieces with the corn flour/potato flour.
Fry in a hot frying pan with about 2 cups of cooking oil, about 5-6 minutes, do it in batches and don’t have to much meat in the pan at the same time. The oil should have a temperature of 150-160 degrees, use a thermometer if you have the opportunity.
Allow the meat to drain on paper towels and then place in a bowl.
Mix together and cook up the dressing in a saucepan, then pour it over the fried meat and garnish with toasted sesame seeds, chopped fresh cilantro and scallions.
I did this summer dish this week, it’s so good! I grilled the pork tenderloin but you can also fry it and then use the oven. :) The tenderloin is served cold so you can easily prepare the dinner early if you want. For this I had roasted potatoes in the oven. :)
600 g pork fillet
1 pinch off dried chili, crumbled
1 lemon, zest
parsley, finely chopped
1 cup white wine
1 cup olive oil
1 bunch basil, shredded
2 tablespoons fresh rosemary, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, divided
salt and black pepper
280 g of artichokes in marinade
150 g ricotta
1 small clove garlic
1 lemon, zest
1 tablespoon finely chopped parsley
salt and pepper
Trim the pork tenderloin free from fat and cut away membranes. Mix all the marinade ingredients. Pour it in a sealed plastic bag and marinate the meat in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours.
Preheat the oven to 175 degrees. Dry the meat with paper towels.
Heat some olive oil in a frying pan, add the meat and fry it all around. Then put the meat in a baking dish, place in oven and roast the tenderloin for about 20 minutes. The meat is done when the temperature is 65-68 degrees and the meat is lightly pink inside. Or you can grill the pork fillet which I did. :)
Allow the meat to cool and cut it into very thin slices. Brush with olive oil, flavored with a pinch of dried chili. Serve the meat over tired with lemon zest and parsley.
Pour the marinade from the artichokes. Add all ingredients to the cream in a bowl and mix or run them in a food processor to a smooth cream. Season with salt and pepper.

This is a super easy recipe for a cold bearnaisesauce that no one can fail with. :)
