Cut the meat into 1 inch (2.5 cm) slices. Place each pork slice between sheets of waxed paper and pound to 1/4 -inch thickness. In a large mixing bowl, combine the egg white, cornstarch, salt, black pepper, and oyster sauce. Stir well. Add sliced pork, turning to coat each piece thoroughly. Cover and set aside for 1 hour, or refrigerate overnight.

Remove the leaves from Oriental greens. Slice stalks diagonally into 1/2 inch (1.25 cm) slices. Bring a large pot of water to a boil over medium-high heat. Salt it, then add all the greens (leaves included). Cook for 1 minute. Drain, refresh under cold running water, set aside and allow cooling. Squeeze out as much water as you can with your hands.

Fry the pork, 2-3 pieces at a time, turning once, until golden. Drain on paper towel.

Oven Baked Pork Tenderloin with Fennel Recipe


  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
  • 1 tablespoon fennel seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 pounds (1.44 kg) pork tenderloins (trimmed of fat and membrane)
  • 1 ½ cups chopped fennel bulb
  • 1 small yellow onion, peeled and chopped
  • 1 ¼ cups (310 ml) reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) dry white wine
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-fat sour cream


Step 1

Preheat oven to 425 F (220C).

Step 2

Mash garlic, fennel seeds, and 1/2 teaspoon salt together on a cutting board with the flat side of a large knife. Transfer to a small bowl; stir in pepper and 1/2 tablespoon of the oil. Rub the fennel-seed mixture evenly over tenderloins, pressing it into the crevices. Fold the thin tails underneath and secure with butcher's string or a toothpick.

Step 4

Meanwhile, heat the remaining 1/2 tablespoon oil in a heavy saucepan over medium-lower heat. Add fennel and onions and cook, stirring often, until softened,3-5 min. Stir in dry white wine and bring to a simmer.

Step 5

Cover and cook over low heat until the vegetables are tender,10-15 min. Transfer to a blender or food processor and puree., Return to the saucepan and keep warm. When the pork is ready, transfer it to a carving board, cover loosely and keep warm.

Step 6

Place the skillet(do not wipe it)over medium-high heat., Pour in wine and bring to a boil, stirring. Boil until reduced by half, about 2 min. Add to the fennel sauce, along with sour cream, if using.

Step 7

Remove the string or toothpick from the tenderloin and carve into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Spoon the sauce onto plates and fan the pork slices over the top. Garnish with a few fronds.
