Simply Fried Pork Cubes

Fried Pork CubesWhat can be simpler than frying up some meat for dinner? This is one of those dishes that just kind of evolves simply because you have ran out of time and hungry kids are banging on the table for food (I’m exaggerating). I was going to make a slow simmered stew with these cubes, but between the slicing and dicing of all the veggies and spices required for the stew, I knew that would be out of the question. So as a quick and easy solution, I simply salt and peppered the pork cubes and fried them up in hot oil until they were nicely browned. Just so they won’t look so pitiful, I sliced up some green onions and threw them in the skillet just before taking the meat out. Stirred through, they were ready to serve.

These were dipped in a mixture of soy, vinegar and pepper flakes. Or if you are not the dipping kind like my husband, just drizzle the sauce over the meat.

About Jeanette Moore (JMom)

I am a terrible housekeeper but I do love to cook so it all evens out in the end. I like to try new recipes that I think my family will like. However, I am not one to follow all recipes to the letter. I tend to tweak and change the recipes based on what I have on hand and how I am feeling at the time. Feel free to share your versions, I just might try it out next time I make the dish again.

    Hi joey! so you’re a porker too, eh? 🙂 I love pork in any form too! I’ll take it over chicken anyday. Bless my cholesterol 😉

    Thanks for the mole recipe. I’ll have to hunt down some of the ingredients too, but luckily several mexican tiendas have been popping up around town so I think I will have no problemo finding them 🙂

    Again, these are the kind of meals that take me back home. No fuss, simple, and tasty.

    RYC: I wanted so much to do a Black Oaxacan Mole like the recipe here, but I’ll have to wait until I can get my hands on some chiles!

    heheheh, ganyan din me minsan. biglang tinatamad! Like last night, I was going to make spaghetti puttanesca but when time for cooking came, bigla me tinamad. So I just put all the seafoods and added japanese radish, carrots and bamboo shoots in a pot then cooked them with soysauce, cooking wine, sweet cooking wine and water. Hindi pa matrabaho. turned out ok, pero sabi ni hubby medyo maalat daw.

    type ko rin yang pinirito mo. I’ll probably make a spicy and hot dip for it.

    enjoy the week!
