Beer Flavoured Spicy Pork Slices

Mad About Meat
As you know I can’t stand beer. But I have more than a few friends who would grow gills and live in a sea of beer given the chance. So whenever I make a meat snack, it is not unusual for them to take a bite and comment that a chilled bottle of beer would be the best accompaniment. Sometimes when I’m cooking for my friends and they’re already drinking beer, I steal some to marinate meat or pour some into the pan as I fry the meat. The beer infuses the meat with a subtly nutty flavor. Here’s an easy tried and tested recipe.
For Marinade
1 Cup of Beer
1 tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice
1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
2tbsp Sweet and Spicy Tobasco Sauce
1 tsp Salt
Mix ingredients and pour marinade over pork slice. Leave for two hours.
For Pork Slices
1 kg Pork, thin slices (If you’re making it super spicy like I do, choose loin cuts nearer the shoulder, it has more fat and balances well with the chilli. If you want it bland, choose leaner cuts from the center)
4 clove of Garlic, minced
1 tbsp of freshly ground ginger
3 tbsp Dried Red Chilli Flakes
1tbsp Refined oil
2 cups of Beer
1 cup of Bell peppers, cut into squares
Heat oil in deep non stick pan, add garlic, ginger and chilli flakes and fry on low flame. Add Pork along with marinade sauce. Close lid and cook on high flame for 30 mins or until dry. Add 1 cup of Beer, close lid and cook for another 30 mins on medium flame.
Check to see if pork is cooked, add bell peppers and 1 cup of beer and stir fry on hight heat until peppers are cooked.
Serve hot with beer.
