Ingredients
  • 1 lb pork tenderloin (cut into 1 inch strips) (450g)
  • 1 tsp five-spice powder
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp ground pepper
  • 1 tsp sweet dark soy sauce
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 3 green onions (finely sliced)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 large fresh beancurd sheets (cut into eight 7 in x 7 in squares)
  • Sufficient vegetable oil for deep frying
Instructions
  1. Combine pork tenderloin strips, five-spice powder, salt, ground pepper, sweet dark soy sauce, sesame oil, green onions, and egg in a medium bowl. Leave to marinate for 30 minutes.
  2. Place a piece of prepared beancurd sheet on your work surface. Wipe with a damp towel to soften.
  3. Spoon a generous strip of marinated meat mixture onto one edge of a piece of 7 in x 7 in beancurd sheet, leaving about an inch uncovered on each side.
  4. Roll neatly into a cylinder. Place seam side down onto a plate.
  5. Heat sufficient vegetable oil in a deep fryer or pan to about 325˚F (165˚C). Carefully lower prepared meat rolls into the hot oil and deep fry turning until golden brown. This should take 4 to 5 minutes. Remove and drain on paper towels.
  6. Slice each roll at a diagonal and serve immediately with sweet chili sauce.
