  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 6 cilantro roots, scraped and chopped (or a small handful of cilantro stems)
  • 1/2 tablespoon ground white pepper
  • 4 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon light soy sauce (light as in “not dark,” but “low-sodium” will also work)
  • 4 ounces (1/2 cup) coconut cream
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon superfine sugar (or just blitz granulated sugar in a blender until fine but not powdery)
  • 1 pound pork tenderloin or loin, thinly sliced at an angle into strips
