[Replace pork for a Halal twist]
I love Japanese BBQ and I really love how they marinate their meat. It is tender, juicy and delicious without overpowering the original flavour of the meat. The Japanese BBQ marinate I would be introducing today would be my personal recipe – a fusion between Japanese and Chinese marinate. This dish is tasty and can be cooked within minutes – perfect for an instant meal or packing your children’s lunchbox early in the morning. Don’t forget to add in some vegetables, e.g. our 5-minutes Chinese Stir-fried Spinach, to balance out your nutrient intake!
- 300 g of pork / beef meat
- 1 tbs oyster sauce
- 1 tbs soy sauce
- 1 tbs ginger & garlic paste
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 1/2 tsp salt
- [Optional] 1 tsp dark soy sauce
- [Optional] Some freshly chopped spring onion
1. Slice your pork loin into 3 mm thick slices. Machine-cut pork slices are usually too thin and would result in lost of juiciness of the meat while cooking. Prepare the marinate by mixing all the ingredients above in a bowl.
2. Coat the pork slices and give them a light massage in a clockwise direction. Let them marinate for at least 5-10 minutes (overnight if possible).
3. Using a flat pan, heat up a little oil in it. Set the flame to medium-low. Grill your pork slices for 3-5 minutes on each side till fully cooked.
