Apple Seasoned Pork

Seasoning makes meat tender. In this recipe, I used apple, which is one of the most common fruits in Finland. The sweet and sour apple taste increases your appetite.

INGREDIENTS
ingredient
  • pork 300 g
  • apple 50 g
  • soy sauce 2 tablespoon
  • vinegar (5%) 1 tablespoon
  • garlic (1 clove) 5 g
  • ginger (1 slice) 5 g
tool
  • plastic bag 1
  • mixer or grinder 1
INSTRUCTIONS
  • Put all seasoning in a mixer and grind, then put in a plastic bag. You can also manually grind apple, garlic and ginger before mixing them with the rest of the seasoning. Mix well.
  • Slice pork to 3mm thick slices and put in the seasoning bag. Mix well so that the seasoning covers all pork.
  • Put in the fridge and let them rest more than 30 minutes. You can also freeze it after seasoning time and cook later.
  • Heat pan with strong middle heat and fry on both sides.
NOTES
●The sweet and sour taste of apple reduces the fatty taste pork sometimes has. I used to think apple was just a fruit and for dessert or snacks, but in Finland it’s so common and popular that I tried to cook with apple.
●You can also cook pork seasoned this way with vegetables like roughly cut cabbage or thin sliced carrot. Try also wrapping fried pork in lettuce.
●In Finland, I eat pork more often than in Japan. I buy a block of pork neck and slice it into thin and chunky pieces. One reason I buy pork is the price (7e/kg), same as chicken thigh. Another thing is that I realized it’s totally useful to season pork and freeze it. My variations to season grow in numbers, and every time I buy meat I feel excited about which recipe shall I try next.
●If you season and freeze meat, it makes it easy to prepare dinner in the busy evening, and also makes meat tender and juicy. I always buy 2 kg of pork, slice and cut them and make 6 of 300g meat packets. Season two of those sliced pork for frying, two of pork chunks for karaage and leave two without seasoning.
