Tangy tamarind pork fillet ~ 亚参猪肉片


The tamarind juice in this recipe adds a sweet and sour flavour to the meat along with the aromatic kaffir lime leaves.  Besides adding flavour, the natural acidity of tamarind helps to tenderise the meat and makes the pork fillet more succulent and tender.  The marinade makes a delicious sauce when reduced and this goes very well with plain white rice.
