Sweet and Sour Pork

So I cooked this dish last night for my family…and I must say, we really enjoyed it. I got the base recipe from taste where it is rated 4 stars by other cooks and tweaked it a little to suit our buds. It was a super easy to prep and cooked fast, making it a perfect weeknight dinner or an alternative to Asian take out.

Ingredients

Sweet & sour sauce

Method

Step 1

Place the pork belly, soy sauce, garlic, and pepper in a large glass or ceramic bowl. Toss to combine and set aside for 30 minutes to marinate.

Step 2

Meanwhile, for the sauce, place the sugar, juice, rice vinegar, ketchup, soy sauce and Chinese five spice in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Simmer for 5 minutes.

Step 3

Combine the cornflour and water in a bowl. Add to the sauce and simmer for 2 minutes or until thickened slightly. Remove from heat. Set aside.

Step 4

Fill a wok one-third full with oil. Heat to 180C over high heat. Toss pork in plain flour. Cook pork, in batches, for 4 minutes or until golden brown. Drain on paper towel.

Step 5

Remove oil from wok. Wipe clean with paper towel. Heat extra oil in wok, over high heat. Add the onion and stir-fry for 1 minute. Add the tomato and shallot.

Step 6

Stir-fry for 1 minute or until the vegetables are tender crisp. Return the pork to the wok and pour over the sauce. Toss to coat. Serve warm.
