1 lb boned loin pork
salt and pepper to taste
1 tsp sugar
2 tbs soy sauce
1 tbs sherry
pinch of MSG
Cut the pork into strips about 2 inches in length and 1 inch in width (cut with the grain of the meat and not across as normal). Mix the seasonings and sugar, rub into the meat. Then rub the sherry and soy sauce into the meat and allow the meat to absorb the flavour for at least 2 hours.
Roast in a moderate oven 350F or gas mark 4 for 10-15 minutes. Raise the oven temperature to high 425F or gas mark 7, turn and baste the pork well for another 10-15 minutes.
The gf has gotten her hands on her great grandmother’s handwritten recipe book, and we are now happily going through them to cook and experiment. The pork from this recipe is very tender and flavoursome, and it reminds me of Chinese home cooking…
Just to point out that I didn’t use msg…and I think it’s already very good without it!
