  1. Pork Steak Tapa

    • Rub the pork with rock salt and wash under cold running water.
    • Pound the pork steak to tenderize the meat.
    • In a non-reactive bowl, combine the ingredients for the marinade. Pour half of the marinade over the pork and let stand for at least 30 minutes.
    • When making a big batch, you may portion the pork in individual vacuum bags.
    • Add the calamansi juice in the remaining marinade.
    • In a hot non-stick pan, add the oil. Drain the pork from its marinade, pan-fry the pork over medium heat until they are cooked through. When the pork is about to be done, add sauce with calamansi. Let it simmer for 5 minutes to let the sauce reduce slightly into a glaze. Set aside in the pan until ready to assemble.
