Sesame Seed Shandy Pork

What happens when I decided to put my "chef skills" to the test?

I wanted to put a special twist to a pork dish.

So I imagined myself as a chef of a restaurant, nothing fancy, just a normal neighbourhood Chinese restaurant. What would a chef make?

Hmmm...What about frying some bite-sized pork chops? - Sounds good!

What would I add?

Sesame seeds - hmmmm yummy yummy!! ok set.

What about mixing it with some healthy oats? I am sure that's what a restaurant chef would add, right? But that's usually for prawns, never mind!! I am sure it works on pork too :)

I am missing one special chef like ingredient!! Hmmm! Hmmm! What could it be? I need a special marinade to blend all the ingredients together.

Ah ha....I think chefs usually use beer or more often Guiness Stout for pork ribs. Let me check what I have in the house.

Ok I can only find a bottle of Shandy. That will do!! :)

All mixed together, marinade, marinade....

Frying time.......

And the results....

The taste was good but the sesame seeds and oats could not really stick to the meat. Thus presentation wise, was not as pleasing.

It's ok....it went into our stomachs pretty fast.

So much for imaging myself as a wannabe chef!

Cool idea. This is how chefs come up with new recipes. Sometimes it goes well, sometimes it doesn't. This sounds like it would taste good.

Maybe the oats and sesame seeds would stick better if you dipped the meat in flour, then egg first before dipping in the oats and sesame seeds?
