Sweet and Sour Pork

This pork dish is one of Joe's favourites whenever we go out for Chinese food. Its simple and easy to prepare as well. I have made sweet sour prawns and fish too, so be creative and try chicken or crabs with the same recipe.


1/2 kilo lean pork cut into cubes, mixed with salt and dipped in cornflour and fried
Yellow onions sliced
Fresh Ginger slices (3 inch piece)
5-6 pips of garlic chopped
Red/Green Bell Pepper chopped
Spring Onions chopped
Pineapple bits (1/4 cup)
2 tablespoons of ground chili paste
Some ground pepper

Mix together in a bowl:-
5 tablespoons tomato sauce
1 tablespoon oyster sauce
1 tablespoon chili sauce
3 tablespoons of Plum sauce
A dash of sesame oil

In some oil, fry the ginger then garlic and onions and once fragrant, add the 2 tablespoons of ground chili paste and cook for about 5 minutes and then add the mixed sauces and keep stirring for about 7-8 minutes before adding the bell peppers and pineapples bits. Taste for salt and add some ground pepper then add in the fried pork cubes and lastly mix in the spring onions. (Add water only if the mixture is too dry)

hey sharmo!!
how are you?? just wanted to let you know that I tried this recipe today!. It was fantastic!!...Bruce loved it too! Didn't have the plum sauce but it was still great. A nice taste of home. Am still drooling over all your fish curries and prawn sambals. But this man here doesn't take hot/spicy which is such a shame. Still, am going to try it one of these days. Am contemplating one of your fish curries next. Bruce says hi...he thinks your blog looks very professional.

take care sharm

Thanks for sharing sharm. I've had to share your recipe with folks who tasted this yummy dish.
