Ever find yourself craving crispy fried chicken or pork, or anything deep-fried, battered?

Try these fried pork strips next time when the craving for easy, crispy fried food hits. They will definitely hit the spot!

In quest for healthy variations, I tried baked pork strips, and chicken fingers.

They’re good and all, but if we’re really honest here, they’re not as good as fried ones. The color isn’t beautiful golden brown and mouthwatering, and they lack that satisfying fried crispness! Right?

How to make fried pork strips:

Ok, so this recipe is easy peasy. You’ll only need 4 ingredients.

And the key is pre-seasoned Italian-style Panko. You’ll find it in the flour section of your grocery store. Buttermilk helps to keep the pork tender and juicy. If you’re in time crunch, 15 minutes of soaking will do.

    1. Hi, Kate! You can use regular Panko and simple season it yourself. I think salt, ground black pepper, some italian seasoning would be great. Since I haven’t done so myself, I can’t provide the measurements.
