Description

Pork Fries are crispy and savory strips of seasoned pork, perfect as a flavourful snack or appetizer. Enjoy the deliciousness of pork in a new way!

 


Ingredients

Units Scale

Pork

  • 1 kg pork shoulder, sliced into long strips
  • Vegetable oil, for frying

Marinade

  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp salt

Breading

Dipping sauce


Instructions

  1. Begin by marinating the pork shoulder. In a heavy-duty Ziploc bag, combine the buttermilk, lightly beaten egg, minced garlic, black pepper, and salt. Add the pork shoulder, seal the bag, and let it marinate in the refrigerator for 6-8 hours.
  2. In a large container with a lid, mix the flour, cornflour, salt, garlic powder, and onion powder to create the breading mixture.
  3. Remove the pork from the marinade, allowing any excess liquid to drain off. Place the pork in the container with the breading mixture, ensuring that the unbreaded pieces do not touch each other.
  4. Close the container and shake it gently to coat the pork evenly. Repeat this process in batches until all the pork is coated.
  5. Preheat your deep fryer to 180C. Carefully place the breaded pork in the fryer, working in batches if necessary, and cook for approximately 8 minutes or until the pork is cooked through and has turned golden brown and crispy.
  6. Once cooked, remove the pork fries from the fryer and drain off any excess oil. Allow them to cool slightly before serving.
  7. In a small bowl, combine the sweet chili sauce and lime juice to create the dipping sauce. Mix well until the ingredients are thoroughly combined.
  8. Serve the pork fries alongside the tangy dipping sauce for an extra burst of flavour. Enjoy the irresistible crunch and tender pork inside with every bite.

  1. They look crunchy and so tempting!

  2. This looks amazing, Raymond! Definitely something I’m going to try soon. This is a pork loving household, lol!

    Here, they will marinate with fermented bean curd…or salted egg yolk…or “ang chao” – the red yeast rice residue from making the Foochow traditional red wine. All nice.

  4. These look like. much healthier version of the Mexican chicharones – which are pork rinds fried the same way. Love that you are recreating them form the Lucky 8!

  5. I’m not too much into fried foods, but these pork fries look terrific and so inviting. I’ve also heard that buttermilk is an excellent marinade/ tenderizer, so I bet this meat is really soft and nice!

    I know I’ve seen “chicken fries” on some fast food menus, but this looks WAY better than any of those offerings. For such a simple concept, the batter is absolutely key, and yours nails it for texture and and consistency. I can practically hear the crunch through the screen!

  7. What a fun idea! I’ve made “steak fingers” which are somewhat similar, but this is a different variation. And that dipping sauce sounds delicious!
