  • 300 g pork sirloin or tenderloin
  • 2 green onions cut into short sections
  • 5 slices of ginger
  • 10 Sichuan peppercorn seeds
  • 1 star anise
  • 1 tablespoon light soy sauce
Stir frying sauce
  • 1 tablespoon light soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Chinese five spice powder or as needed
  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil , olive oil
  1. Wash the pork and then cut into larger chunks around 3 to 4 cm.
  2. Cook them in boiling water for around 5 minutes to remove the impurities. Transfer out and wash again.
  3. In high pressure cooker or a large pot, add ginger, green onion, star anise, soy sauce and Sichuan peppercorn and pork; pour enough water to cover the pork meat. Add 1 tablespoon of light soy sauce too. For high pressure cooker, cook for around 20 minutes until the pork is soft. If you use pot to simmer, simmer them for 40 minutes and add slightly more water (3 cm higher) and check the water level from time to time. Add hot water if necessary (make sure the pork is covered with water).
  4. Transfer out and cool down; finely shredded by hand.
For bread-maker
  1. Place everything in bread-maker, add all the other sauces and select Jam mode. Wait for around 1 hour and 30 minutes or so to finish the process.
For pan frying
  1. Firstly use a standard-mixer with cake beater hook to break the pork meat and then stir-fry in a deep fry pan with the stir-fry sauce for around 20 minutes to 30 minutes until the meat floss becomes fluffy enough.
