How To Make pork essentials: tenderloin matchsticks on rice

  • 1
  • 2
    Gather your Ingredients (mise en place).
  • 3
    Cut the pork loin into matchsticks.
  • 4
    Add the pork loin, garlic, honey, vinegar, tamari sauce, mirin, and sesame seeds into a bowl.
  • 5
    Chef’s Note: You can let the pork rest with the other ingredients for about 15 minutes, but it is not necessary.
  • 6
    Add the grapeseed oil, and the sesame oil to a sauté pan over high heat.
  • 7
    When the oil begins to shimmer, add the pork.
  • 8
    Cook over high heat, until most of the liquid has evaporated, and the sauce begins to thicken, about 4 – 6 minutes.
  • 9
    Chef’s Tip: You need to keep an eye on the sauce, because you will have about 30 seconds between a good thickened sauce, and a burned sauce. Once you add the pork, do not leave the pan unattended.
