~Pork Tempura with housemates favorite sauces~

I want something easy and unusual midweek lunch for us earlier. So i thought of baking some potatoes instead of frying them. Tired of french fries! Was craving for tempura - it is an Asian delicacy that deep fry them with special breading. Since I couldn't find it anywhere else here. I'm thinking of making my own version of it. I had a boneless pork tender loin that are cut perfectly for my plan. The recipe is so easy peacey and less time consuming. We all enjoyed our lunch and kids where eating good because i slice the meat smaller, easy for them to chew. Would love to share you how it's made:

2 pieces pork loin ( cut into small strips pieces, similar to clam strips)
1 egg beaten
1/2 cup flour
pinch of ground pepper
pinch of paprika
1 tsp garlic salt
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp nacho cheddar seasoning (optional)
1 tbsp Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup cooking oil for frying 
extra 1/2 cup flour for dusting
2 stalk of green onions for garnish

Mix all together except the 1/2 cup flour. Heat oil. The individually distribute it to the frying skillet along with the dusting flour. Repeat them constantly until all cooked. Set aside.

~Baked Potatoes with melted cheese~

Meanwhile for the baked potatoes. First, i microwave 5 pieces medium size potatoes for 10 minutes or until they are fully done. Then, cut them in serving size. Place individual pieces on a baking sheet and lined them up. Coat them with some olive oil or just regular cooking oil (vegetables or canola). Sprinkle of ground pepper and garlic salt. Then, i use shredded mild cheddar cheese for extra flavor. Lastly, broil them on HI for 5 minutes or until cheese melts and a lil brown. 

Serve them with favorite sauces. I have ketchup for the lil man, ranch dressing for the girl and Asian hot chilli sauce for me and hubs. We're all stuffed! Wink!

Happy Cooking!
