Spicy Oriental Pork

Here's one of my favorite dishes that I've made so far, it's a different recipe that I've made my own style of. It can also be used as a pasta sauce for those of you who know this type of spaghetti. I learned this recipe from a classmate back in college. Here are the ingredients.


  • 400 grams of Pork Tenderloin cut into 2 inch thick pieces
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 pcs large eggs
  • Canola Oil

for the sauce:

  • 1/2 sliced button mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup onions finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup shitake mushrooms (smaller pieces soaked in water)
  • 1/2 cup peanuts (roasted)
  • 2 tablespoon honey
  • 1 pack chili-garlic sauce
  • 3 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 1 small pack of snow peas
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoon sesame oil


This recipe is very easy to make, after preparing everything heat a pan and roast the peanuts but don't overcook them. After that prepare the meat for the breading. Dredge the meat in the flour, egg and then the flour again to double the coating. After you've done all the meat heat a deep pan and fry the meat pieces. When all the frying is done put the fried pork on paper towels to soak the oil. Proceed in preparing the sauce, saute the onions until it is slightly translucent, then drain the water from the shitake mushrooms and add it to the mix. Also add the button mushrooms, it's better to buy can sliced button mushrooms to lessen the pre-prep time. Add the sesame oil and it all depends on you how much chili-garlic sauce you want to add, i prefer half of the packet. After deciding if you like it hot or not, add the oyster sauce, peanuts, snow peas and honey. You have to add a little water if you want a little more sauce with what you made. Let it simmer for 3 to 5 minutes, after simmering add the pork pieces into the sauce mix and simmer it for another 5 minutes for the flavor to sink in the meat. Once again dinner is served, or maybe lunch heheheh...
