Pork Cutlet

As promised, let me show you the magic that my Healsio can perform. Ta-da... presenting Crispy, Tender Pork Cutlet - The Oil-free and Healthy way of cooking! :D

  • Pork Loin
  • Cream Crackers* (finely crushed)
  • Egg (beaten)
*you can used packet bread crumbs too, but for a great 'crunch' effect, I like to use the former. I used to find it difficult and time consuming to crush the cream crackers into really fine bits with a cutlery or even my bare hands. I later found out that by wrapping the crackers in paper towel and using a meat tenderizer to crush, it not only saves loads of efforts in retrieving bits and pieces that 'flew' off during the crushing, but time as well! In the process, the paper towel also helps to absorb some of the oil in the crackers, resulting in a healthier treat! :)

  • 2 tbsp Soy Sauce
  • 2 tsp Oyster Sauce (optional)
  • 1 tbsp Cooking Wine
  • 1 tsp Sesame Oil
  • Dash of Pepper
  • 1 tbsp Corn Flour (or just enough to coat a thin layer on the meat)


1) Cut the meat into big slices with a reasonable width for each slice. I prefer not too thin a slice as I like the shiok feeling of sinking my teeth deep into the meat. :P

2) Tenderize the meat by using the meat tenderizer tool or the back end of the cleaver.

3) Marinate the meat with the seasonings, corn flour being the last to be added. Leave it in the fridge for at least half an hour.

4) Soak the meat into the beaten egg.

5) Coat the meat in the crushed cream crackers.

6) Place the processed meat into Healsio and set to 'grill' for 10 minutes on each side while you attend to the other dishes. (and yes, not even a drip of cooking oil is used!)

There you go! The hassle-free, oil-less, tender, crispy-py pork cutlet in 20 minutes. ;)

Hi Anonymous!

Yes, I have influenced quite a few into getting Healsio, some of them are readers of this blog, just like you. :)

hahah I get this suggestion of getting a portion of the sales profit pretty from Sharp often too. I probably should consider going into the sales line for Healsio one day, ya? kekeke

Thanks for dropping by. Been busy recently, thus the lack of updates. But will be back in another 1-2 mths. Stay tuned! :D
