Pan-fry Tenderloin Pork with Soy Sauce

I remember when I was young,my mom love to cook this pan-fried pork for us.One of my brother really crazy in love with this pork dish.He can eat this dish everyday!! There is no unique ingredients to use to marinate this pork.All you need is sugar,soy sauce,dark soy sauce and ground pepper!! Well,if you wonder which part of pork should you use for this dish,I have good news for you!! Tenderloin is the best part and you can get that part of pork anywhere in local market or supermarket! I bought a whole tenderloin,family pack and trim some fats away but still retains some excess fats for this dish. If you're not a pork eater,maybe you can replaced pork tenderloin with boneless whole leg (dark meat preferred).Hubby eat this pan-fried pork with bread as sandwich.As long as I add less ground pepper,he alright with the meal..Actually he whacked finished the whole plate in 2 days!! I recalled he complained that this pork was hot and spicy when my mom served him years ago..


2 lbs tenderloin pork or dark meat boneless chicken,remove excess fats

2 tbsp sugar or to taste

1 tbsp ground white or black pepper ,more or less

2 tbsp soy sauce

salt to taste*optional*

1 drop dark thick soy sauce*optional*

some oil for frying


1:Cut pork shape like cutlet about 1 inch thick each piece,use metal meat mallet or back of the knife(the dull side) to tenderize the meat before marinate with all the seasoning for 2 hours or more. Use the tip of your finger to check the seasoning.

2:Heat skillet or pan ,drizzle some oil at medium heat.Slowly place each piece of meat on the skillet,pan-fry each side for 1 minute or until cooked.

3:Dish out and serve warm with rice.
