ASSEMBLY INGREDIENTS

  • 4 cups

In a large bowl, combine all batter ingredients except pork and peanut oil; whisk thoroughly and set aside. In another large bowl, combine all sauce ingredients.

In a deep cast iron skillet over medium-high heat, heat peanut oil until about 350°F. Working in small batches, dredge pork in batter and fry about 5 to 6 minutes; removing from oil with a slotted metal spoon or spider to a plate lined with paper towels.

In a large wok or skillet over high, heat 2 tablespoons oil until just starting to smoke. Add chilies, scallions, carrots, and zucchini and stir constantly for about 1 minute. Add sauce and bring to a boil, about 30 seconds. Add pork, stirring constantly until sauce thickens, about 2 to 3 minutes. Add sesame seeds and serve.
