- Remove the meat from the pot and let it cool down.
- Spread 1 tbsp of salt on the meat, make sure to distribute it evenly on all sections.
- We should deep fry the meat. On a dry frying pan, place the cooking oil and heat it up.
- When the oil is hot enough, put in the meat & cook until the bottom part is brown. Flip the meat to cook the opposite part.
- Remove the meat from the pan, let it cool down a little then slice according to desired portions. Place in a plate with paper towels so the oil from meat will be absorbed.
