Turmeric Pork Slice

Turmeric is widely used in post natal confinement recipes. It acts as an antibiotic and promotes a healthy circulatory system. Besides, it is an important spice used in Indian curry. Sometimes it is used as a coloring agent too.

Being a working lady, I always find shortcuts to cook my own dishes. I stole my mama's turmeric pork slice recipe not long ago. :) Instead of following mama using fresh turmeric juice to marinate the meat, I have cutshort the steps by using turmeric powder. I know, the effects may not be the same as the fresh turmeric root, but I have no choice. :(

Here's how I cook the dish. I'm satisfied with the first trial result. :P It's aromatic and delicious. My carnivor hubby loves it too. Hurray!


1. 300g lean pork.

2. 3 to 4 tbsp of Canola oil.

3. Seasoning: 1 tbsp Ghee Hiang sesame oil, 2 1/2 tbsp light soy sauce, 1 tbsp sugar, 1 flat teaspoon of turmeric powder and a dash of pepper.


1. Thinly slice the lean pork, marinate and season it for at least 15 minutes.

2. Heat Canola oil in the wok, and fry the marinated pork slices.

3. Keep on frying until the meat slices' edge turn a bit darker yet it is not burnt. For reference, see the texture and the colour in the above photo.

I teach you another better way to take this dish. I'm sure you would want to go for more next time. I would use chicken slices more as it won't be so dry as pork.

Just follow your own recipe but coat the meat with Hup Loong frying powder and deep fry them in hot boiling oil. Use kitchen towels to get rid of the excess oil and place them on a plate evenly. Top with some mayonnaise sauce mixed with some crunched oregano leaves.

Enjoy trying out this dish :)
