Sweet and Sour Pork

This recipe was requested by daughter for this week’s menu so I came to my FB page to make it (quicker than rifling through my recipes!) and it has disappeared!  So, if you missed it the first time, or wanted it and it got lost here is the yummiest, easiest sweet and sour recipe without a jar!!!

2tbsp souy sauce

2tbsp rice vinegar (or white wine vinegar)

2tbsp tomato puree

1tbsp caster sugar

2tsp toasted sesame oil

2tsp cornflour

150ml chicken stock or water

1tbsp groundnut or veg oil

500g pork fillet, trimmed and cubed

2 peppers, deseeded and cubed

1 or 2 (if small) carrots sliced into sticks

1 bunch of spring onions, trimmed and chopped

5cm piece of root ginger, peeled and thinly sliced

1 lg clove of garlic, thinly sliced

400g pack of fresh pineapple or similar sized tin

  • In a bowl, mix together soy sauce, vinegar, tomato puree, sugar, sesame oil, cornflour and stock (or water).  Set aside
  • Heat the oil in a stir fry or family skillet (or wok or lg saucepan) and when really hot add the pork and stir-fry for 5 minutes until coloured all over
  • Add the peppers and spring onions and stir fry for a further 5 minutes until softened, then stir in the ginger & garlic and cook for a further minute
  • Stir in the sauce then let it simmer for a couple of minutes or until the pork is cooked through.  Add the pineapple and juices (if from a pack though not from the tin) and heat through.  Serve with noodles.
