Batter

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

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

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.

Your recipes are always fantabulous and like the others, I'm never happy with SS pork. I bet your twice fried meat the secret, and I can't wait to try it.
Thanks once again.
