Boston Chinese Pork Strips

If you love or loved Pork Strips in the Boston area here's how to make them really easily and they are great: get a package of Dragonfly seasoning for Roast Red Pork. Mix a packet with 1/2 cup of water and place it, along with a hunk of pork (tenderloin or loin) in a zip lock bag and marinate the pork for 6 hours or more. Then discard the marinade and roast the pork at 400 deg. F until its internal temperature is 170. Slice 1/4" thick. Warning: don't taste it when you take it out of the oven or there won't be enough for dinner....you'll eat it all. You can get the Dragonfly seasoning at supermarkets, Asian stores or Amazon.com.

I grew up in Ohio in the 1950s and never even heard of Chinese food. When I joined the USAF in 1960, and after Basic Training in Texas and Tech School in Mississippi I was sent to Otis AFB on Cape Cod. Best thing that ever happened to me! I ended up meeting and marrying a girl from Waltham, MA who convinced me to just try Chinese Food once. One barbecued spare rib and a pork strip and I was hooked. I'm still living about an hour North of Boston and still married to the same girl...after 51 years. I'm happy to hear that other people think Boston area Chinese food is the best.

BTW, this stuff makes great Chinese BBQ spare ribs, too.
