Taiwanese Deep-Fried 5 Spiced Pork Steak


4 pieces pork steak
1 stalk green onion
2 slices ginger
4 Tbs. Sweet Potato Powder
2 Tbs Flour


1/2 Tbs. Wine
2 Tbs soy sauce
2 Tbs sugar
2 Tbs water
1/2 tsp white pepper
1/2 tsp 5-spice powder
MSG ( optional )


  1. Choose the tender part of the pork steak. Rinse and pound each slice with back of cleaver to tenderize it.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the seasonings with crushed green onion, and ginger together. Marinate pork for about 20 minutes. ( I prefer to marinate it longer! )
  3. Mix sweet potato powder and flour together; coat the pork. Deep-fry in hot oil for 2 minutes. Remove the pork. Reheat the oil, deep-fry the pork again ( about 30 seconds). Remove the pork . Drain off the oil.

There are many ways to deep-fry pork steak. This is the Taiwanese method. You may just deep-fry the pork without any coating, or coat with only flour or bread crumbs or sweet potato powder, or you may mix a flour paste to coat the pork.
