Mandarin Pork Recipe

I often serve this pork with fried rice and Chinese-style vegetables. It also makes a great appetizer by itself. Folks have fun dipping the nuggets into the two homemade sauces.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + marinating Grill: 20 min. YIELD:6-8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup soy sauce

  • 1/4 cup boiling water
  • 1/4 cup ground mustard

Directions

  • 1. Combine the first six ingredients in a large resealable plastic bag; add pork and turn to coat. Seal bag; refrigerate overnight, turning meat several times.
