  2. Place the pork in a mixing bowl. Scoop the paste over the pork and add crispy flour, sugar, light soy sauce and oyster sauce then use your hands to mix all the ingredients together. Cover the mixing bowl with plastic wrap and place in the fridge at least 15 minutes to marinate.

  3. Heat the cooking oil in a frying pan over medium- heat. Add the pounded garlic(2) and cook until it starts to turn color (the garlic will continue cooking as it sits, so be sure to remove it from the heat before the garlic is golden brown). Use a sieve to drain the garlic and transfer to the paper towel to drain.

Once the oil is hot carefully place the marinated pork into the pan and cook until  golden brown and cooked through. Drain on a paper towel and sprinkle generously with the fried garlic.
