Pork is one of the common food we cook for our family. Compared to beef and expensive sea foods, pork meat is more affordable but also has so much health benefits.
Based on an article in fitho.in, the fat in pork is tran-fat free and mostly mono-and poly-unsaturated. It is a proof that a trimmed pork is suitable for even cholesterol-lowering or healthy heart diets. It added that pork has a high mineral content of Phosphorus, Selenium, Sodium, Zinc, Potassium and Copper. The article stated that Iron and Magnesium are the two minerals that pork has high content, while Calcium and Mangnese are found in traces only. Also from Fitho, I learned that pork is highly enriched with Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Thiamin, Niacin, Riboflavin and Pantothenic Acid and some quantities of Vitamin A and Vitamin E are found in very small amounts.
Since fried pork is my kids favorite and upon learning that it also a good source of nutrients, I always make sure that I could always serve them their most loved food which is “crispy fried pork”
1 kg pork meat cut to strips
1/tsp. black pepper
1 pack breading mix (good for 1 kg)
cooking oil for deep frying
Wash the meat
Put it in a deep container
Add pepper the mix
After mixing, spread the breading mix and make sure that all parts of the meat are covered
On a deep pan, heat oil at least 2 inches deep
When oil boils, add the pork meat
The heat should stay in an above medium heat so that the pork won’t absorb the oil.
When the pork becomes brown, remove it from heat then place another batch to be fried.
The secret of preparing a crispy fried pork is the amount of heat used, it should always in above medium level.
