Sheryl, it actually works well. It makes a bit of a paste, but then when poured and stirred in the moisture on the pork adds a bit to the liquid. Normally, with just the 1 Tbsp of water you will not need to drain. This process helps to tenderize the pork.

How do you get the water & baking soda to contact all of the pork? Just asking because I want to make this but I can’t visualize 1 tbsp water being enough. Thanks!
