Crispy Fried Pork Recipe

This Crispy Fried Pork is perhaps one of the best pork dishes we’ve tasted. However, there is a trick to cooking it.  The exterior needs to be salty and extra crispy.  The interior needs to be tender, moist, and juicy.  This is a rich combination, one that makes eating a plate of fried pork a seriously dangerous task.  Yes, it should come with a warning.  This poses a clear risk to your health, but oh dear, it is good!  It’s so good that many people have endeavored to perfect this recipe.
