Fried Pork Strips

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by AuntWoofieWoof

This is a recipe I came up with on "one of those days" when an exact recipe did not appeal to me. I used an ingredient from another recipe that I would not have thought about using had I not seen the recipe. I used boneless pork tenderloin cutlets to make these with. I am sure other types of pork will work just as well. If you have leftover flour mixture, you can use some of it to make gravy with. These are good served with mashed potatoes and gravy. Preparation and cooking times are approximate. Since submitting this recipe, I have also used lean, boneless pork ribs for this recipe. I just cut them into strips. My neighbors say they are "the bomb"! :) You can also use pork chop and not cut them into strips. Use them whole. It really makes the chops tender and flavorful.

I made this for myself and SO on 10/4/07 for the Fall/Halloween Swap.For the pork I used some boneless country style ribs cut into strips.For the steak seasoning I used Monterey Steak seasoning by McCormick,but I had to add about a Tablespoon more to give a little bit more taste.The next time I make this I'm going to use your recipe for the seasoning.As I was frying the chops I had to add a little bit more oil,as the coating fell off and stuck to the pan.Thank you so much for posting this will be made again."Keep Smiling:)"

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 lb boneless pork tenderloin steak (approx 2 cutlets)
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tablespoon savory steak seasoning (recipe #73103) or 1 tablespoon other steak seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon instant chicken bouillon granules (or enough crushed bouillon cubes to make 1 tablespoon)
  • 1 cup water (approx)
  • 12 cup vegetable oil


  1. Cut pork tenderloin cutlets (or lean, boneless pork ribs) into strips (approx 1/2-1/4 inch thick).
  2. Pour the water into a bowl and set aside.
  3. Mix the flour, steak seasoning mix and chicken broth powder (or crushed bouillon cubes) together on a plate (I use a paper plate for this).
  4. Dip each pork strip into the water and then into the flour mixture until well coated.
  5. Set aside for a few minutes.
  6. I find it easier to do all of the pork strips before following the next step.
  7. Preheat a large skillet.
  8. Pour the oil into the skillet and heat until hot.
  9. Using a fork or tongs, place each of the pork strips into the hot oil.
  10. Fry for 10 minutes on each side or until done and not longer pink in the middle.
  11. Remove the strips onto a plate with a paper towel on it.
  12. Serve with mashed potatoes and gravy for a tasty meal.
