That was exactly what I was after when I searched 'Chinese pork steak' Sticky, crunchy and fragrant, it would go equally well with noodles or on a bed of lettuce or rice. I seldom eat pork, but this recipe might tempt me more often. Thank you.

Helene Marie, So glad you liked the recipe. If you do not prefer to eat pork too often, try the same dish with duck, beef or even chicken if you like.
