  • 0.75 lb pork loins sliced into quarters
  • 1 red bell pepper diced
  • 1 orange bell pepper diced
  • 1 yellow onion diced
  • 2 cups vegetable oil or any neutral oil




  • In a large mixing bowl, mix your batter ingredients until well combined.
  • Pat your pork loins dry with paper towel. Slice your pork into bite size pieces and add pieces to batter. Mix until each piece is coated in batter. Note: it may be hard to mix as potato cornstarch naturally solidifies when left undisturbed. This is normal. However, when you mix it enough the batter will become loose again.
  • In another bowl, mix your Tangsuyuk sauce until well combined. Set aside.
  • Then in a large wok or deep pan set over medium heat add cooking oil. Place a chopstick in the oil and when you see bubbles form, you are ready to fry your pork. Carefully add in each piece of battered pork. Fry for 5-6 minutes flipping it over until golden brown. Remove and transfer to a plate.
  • Then deep fry again for another 2-3 minutes until extra crispy and brown. Remove and transfer to a paper towel lined plate.
  • Remove the oil and leave 1 teaspoon in the pan. Over medium heat fry your bell peppers and onions until they have softened, about 2-3 minutes. Pour in your sauce and let this reduce until it has thickened. Then pour the sauce into a serving bowl.
  • Serve crispy pork and sauce separately and dip as needed. Or alternatively pour sauce over pork when ready to serve. Enjoy!
