  • 2 tsp. garlic powder

 

Coating

  • 1 ½ cup plain flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. garlic powder
  • 1 Tbsp. celery salt
  • 1 Tbsp. dried thyme
  • 1 Tbsp. paprika
  • 1 Tbsp. chilli flakes
  • 1 tsp. chilli powder
  • 1 tsp. baking powder

 

Sauce

  • 2 Tbsp. gochujang
  • 4 Tbsp. maple syrup
  • 2 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 4 Tbsp. soy sauce
  • 2 tsp. garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp. ginger, minced

How to make it

  1. In a large mixing bowl mix together all the marinade ingredients and the pork tenderloin. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hr.
  2. Use another large mixing bowl and whisk all the coating ingredients together and set aside until pork is ready to deep fry.
  3. Use a deep fry pan or saucepan with about 3-4 cm of vegetable oil on med-high heat. You can drop a little of the batter into the oil and if it sizzles straight away its hot enough. Take 5-6 pieces of pork and roll it in the coating. Shake off any excess and carefully place it into the oil. Cook for 4min or until golden brown. Set aside on a rack to drip off any excess oil. Repeat process until all the pork is cooked.
  4. In a medium sized saucepan whisk together all the sauce ingredients on med heat until the brown sugar has melted. Pour over the top of the pork or add pork into the saucepan and toss the sauce through.
  5. Serve and enjoy!
