Meat that are cooked in Microwave oven tends to be tougher and would hardened when cooled. In order to solve this problem, I experimented with tenderloin which is the tenderest cut of pork. I put the whole tenderloin strip in the microwave oven to cook so that the juice would be sealed inside it. I do not want to end up with dried meat! LOL!
Here is my recipe for Lean Tenderloin Pork Char Siew
Pork tenderloin, 1 strip
Sugar, 2 tablespoons
Salt to taste
Light soya sauce, 2 tablespoons
Five Spice powder, 1 teaspoon
Fish sauce, 1 teaspoon (optional)
Corn flour, 2 teaspoons
Marinade pork tenderloin overnight with all the ingredients. Cook the marinated pork tenderloin in microwave oven over high heat for 15 minutes. Turn off the microwave oven power and take out the pork tenderloin. Turn the meat over to the other side. Cook in microwave oven for another 10 minutes. Take the pork tendeloin char siew out from the oven and let it cooled down a little before cutting it into slice. You can make char siew sauce from the leftover marinate by heating it up and bring to a boil. Drizzle a little char siew sauce on the tenderloin char siew before serving.
