Sweet and Sour Pork

Ingredients

150 gr pork fillet

Salt

Rice wine

1 egg yolk

Custard powder

Corn starch

Water

20 gr pineapple

20 gr cucumber

1 tomato

Oil

Sugar

Rice vinegar

Tomato sauce

Preparation

Thin slice the pork fillet and season it with ½ tsp salt, ½ tsp rice wine, the egg yolk and ½ tsp custard powder, then mix all together. Add 2 tbsp of corn starch and mix.

Hint: the meat shouldn’t be too dry, so keep the mix a little liquid

Slice the pineapple, take the seeds out of both cucumber and tomato, and cut them in a triangle shape

Cooking method

  1. Heat 500 gr oil till around 80 degrees (you can notice it cause the oil smokes a little bit), then piece by piece carefully put the pork in, turn on medium heat to deep fry till it becomes of a golden colour (around 1 minute) then move it out.
  2. Prepare the sauce: 3 tbsp of sugar, 2 tbsp rice vinegar, 2 tbsp tomato sauce
  3. Mix the sauce over a high heat, taste to adjust flavours, and when boiling put in all the vegetables and quickly use the corn starch mixed to some water (just few spoons) to thick the sauce, turn off the fire and add the pork.
  4. Enjoy!
