Sweet And Sour Pork Recipe

2 Pounds Pork cut into strips
1 20oz can of Pineapple chunks.
2 Tablespoons soy sauce
Oil for Frying

Batter

1/2 Cup Plus 1 Tablespoon Corn Starch
2 Egg Whites
1/2 Cup Water

Sauce

1 Cup Pineapple Juice / Water (add water to the juice to make 1 cup)
1/4 Cup Sugar
1 Tablespoon Brown Sugar
1 Tablespoon Honey
1/4 Cup Vinegar
2 Tablespoons Soy sauce
1 Carrot thinly sliced
1 small Red Bell Pepper sliced
1 medium Onion sliced
Pineapple Chunks
1 Tablespoon Oil
Thickening slurry
1 Tablespoons Water
1 Tablespoons Corn Starch

Make sauce: Slightly soften onion, pepper and carrot in oil. Add other sauce ingredients.

Prepare pork: Add soy sauce to pork then add batter.

Fry pork in small batches in oil at 330F to 350F to add a little color. After all pork has had a first fry increase oil temp to 375F and fry the pork again in larger batches to get a nice brown color.

Bring sauce to a boil and add Slurry to thicken the sauce. Pour sauce over pork and serve.

Always on the lookout for a sweet and sour sauce that is not too sweet.

I was so disappointed the last time i ordered SS chicken from my favorite take out place. Their spicy foods are perfect --hot and spicey. They drowned my chicken in an ersatz red colored sugar syrup. tsk tsk.

I used to have a good recipe. Don't know where it is, 3x5 card probably inserted inside a cookbook as a bookmark someplace. Lot of good that is. heheh. I think I better copy yet another of your good recipes.

I too have ordered ss pork and didn't like how gigantic each piece of meat, vegetable and fruit was, but that's the style in a lot of restaurants.

I like how simple the ingredients in your recipe are, nothing requiring going to a foreign foods market.
