- Prep time: 10 minutes
- Cooking time: 10 minutes
- Yields: 6 to 8 servings with steamed rice
- ½ cup cornstarch

Combine cornstarch, salt, pepper and sugar in a bowl. Toss and dredge pork into it.
Heat oil for 3 minutes until hot. Fry pork pieces 5 minutes on one side until golden brown then turn over and cook the other side for 2 minutes until brown as well. Make sure the pork pieces are at least 95 percent cooked. Set aside.

Keep stirring over low heat until mayonnaise particles are totally dissolved.
