Mini Pork Wrapped Asparagus

One great way to serve asparagus is by wrapping them in pork loin. Many recipes use pork belly or beef, but by using savory pork loin that has low fat, you can still get a delicious taste while not overpowering the flavors of the asparagus. Adding our YAMASA Soy Sauce to this dish creates a wonderful burst of umami that will instantly make you come back for seconds!

  3. Pour vegetable oil in a frying pan over medium heat and cook STEP 2.
