– Use fruits: Apples, pears, mangoes, or lychees are all fine. Peel the fruits, slice them thinly, then wrap the pieces of meat and cook. The fruit juice will tenderize the meat.

– Use sake wine: Crush onions and apples in a bowl, add a little olive oil and sake wine. Marinate the meat with this sauce overnight in the refrigerator to enhance the flavor and tenderize the meat.

Afterward, drain the excess sauce, then fry the meat with a little black pepper. This method will make your fried meat much more flavorful.

2. Dish is too salty
