Step 1

 Add pork shoulder strips, Chinese five-spice, white pepper, salt, and cooking rice wine to a bowl. Stir to combine well and marinate for 15 minutes.

Step 2

Meanwhile, mix tapioca starch, all-purpose flour, egg, and water in another bowl. Whisk until smooth with no lumps.

Pour the frying batter onto the meat and stir to coat evenly.

Step 4

Heat cooking oil to 325°F to 350°F (176°C to 190°C) in a deep fry pan. Fry pork shoulder strips in two batches. Use long chopsticks or tongs to drop pork strips one by one into the pan.

Step 6

 Heat up the oil a little bit higher than before and drop all fried pork shoulder strips into the pot in one batch. Deep fry again for 10 seconds. Dish out with a strainer and transfer them to a plate lined with paper towels to absorb the excess oil.

Step 7

 Serve immediately.
