This is an interesting name for pork and the sauce sounds amazing but, salad oil for frying? I've actually never heard of soybean salad oil before...is it different than the soybean oil used for frying...and do you really need 8 cups of oil to fry the pork in? I think I'd probably use vegetable oil instead and maybe not so much oil...Actually thinking about it, technically you may be able to do this without the oil considering there's already a cup of it in the pork itself.
