Dry Fried Pork

Pork Ingredients:

1/2 kg Pork Leg Meat(choose one with some fat/skin) Cut into cubes.

1 Onion(Diced small)

Garlic/garlic Paste

1 Tomato(cut into small cubes)


Seasoning(Salt and Pepper)


  1. On a hot pan and with NO OIL, select and cook the pork with the skin on first. The idea is to ensure the skin part gets more time to cook to be edible. (If you are using skinless meat, add little oil).
  2. The pork fat will help in the browning of the meat. Add the skinless meat and cover the pan to allow the meat to cook.
  3. When all the juices have evaporated and the meat starts drying, add the onion and garlic.
  4. Allow for the meat to brown as you keep on stirring to prevent from sticking.
  5. Add the tomatoes and seasoning, stir and cover to allow the tomato to cook.
  6. Taste and correct the seasoning. The meat should be cooked by now. Avoid adding water during cooking but do so only to give the meat more cooking time.
  7. Just before turning off the heat, add the optional coriander then serve hot.
  8. The cooking time should not be long owing to the fact pork is not a tough meat so avoid overcooking it.
  9. Serve with with Cinnamon Rice and Creamed Spinach
