Today I would like to introduce another easy-to-make recipe I have adapted from my home country, Vietnam. Have you ever heard or tried rice flakes (also called flattened rice)? I know there are plenty of ingredients you could use to fry, but rice flakes could be another extra ingredient to join the fried category. It tastes crispy like corn chips after frying, or soft like oatmeal when mixing with milk. It is a secret ingredient that I always want to share with everybody, who enjoy cooking and eating foods. You can try to fry rice flakes with shrimp, egg, chicken and even vegetables; it will bring a new flavour that you may look for…
500 gram leaned pork (5-6 pieces)
1 tsp. seasoning salt
1 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. minced shallot
1 tsp. minced dill
oil to fry
green rice flakes (You can find rice flakes at any Asian supermarket. It comes with white and green colours)
– Cut pork into thin slices. Marinate with seasoning salt, sugar, pepper, dill and shallot. Put all meat into a container, cover lid and leave it in a fridge for about 20 minutes.
– Crack the egg in a small bowl, whisk with chopsticks (or other kitchen tools) until smooth
– After 20 minutes to chill in the fridge, take meat out to coat with a layer of fried powder, egg, and then green rice flakes.
– Turn oven on medium-high, pour oil into a non-stick pan.
– Slowly drop each pork slice into the hot oil, fry until both sides turn golden brown. (Make sure to place on paper towers or dry rack to get rid of extra oil, by doing this, your meat will stay moist and crispy)
*Taste best with steaming rice, noodle or creamy potatoes soup. Enjoy!
