Sweet and Sour Pork

This is the same recipe that I use for Sweet and Sour Chicken!

Serves 4


1 1/2 lbs of pork tenderloin, fat trimmed and cut into 2 inch strips

1 cup of corn starch

2 eggs

3/4 cup of sugar

1/2 cup of white vinegar

1/4 cup of ketchup

1 tbsp of soy sauce

1/2 tsp of garlic salt or powder

1/4 cup of oil

salt and pepper

Stir Fry:

1 medium onion, cut into chunks

1/2 green pepper, cut into chunks

1/2 red pepper, cut into chunks

1/2 yellow pepper, cut into chunks

1 stick of celery, cut into chunks

1/4 cup of edamame beans

1 clove of garlic, minced

2 tbsp of oil

salt and pepper

rice, to serve


Step 1: Coat the pork with the corn starch. Shake off excess. Meanwhile, in a large frying pan over medium heat, add 1/4 cup of olive oil and let heat.

Step 2: In a large bowl, crack the eggs. Add a splash of water and whisk to mix. In batches, add the coated pork and then add to the hot frying pan.

Step 3: While the pork cooks, make your sauce. In a bowl mix together the sugar, ketchup, vinegar, garlic powder and soy sauce.

Step 4: Flip the pork and continue to cook on the other side. Add 3/4 of the sauce and continue to the pork for another 20 minutes (with a total cooking time of 35-40 minutes). Reserve the remaining sauce for the stir fry.

Step 5: While the pork continues to cook, make your stir fry. In a separate frying pan over medium heat, add 2 tbsp of olive oil. Let it heat up then add the onion first. Season with salt and pepper and saute for 2-3 minutes. Add the celery, bell peppers and edamame beans and mix around, and saute for 4-5 minutes. Add the garlic and saute for 1 minute. Now place the reserved 1/4 cup of sauce and combine with the vegetables.

To serve, on a plate place some white rice, stir fry and the pork. ENJOY!
