Time: Prep 10 mins / Cooking 15 mins

Difficulty: Hard

Mild

Ingredients

Serves 2

For deep frying

  • 600ml vegetable oil, for a 6.5 inch saucepan we used 600ml of oil, alternatively use a smaller saucepan. You want about an inch of oil in the bottom of the pan.

For the pork

  • 200g pork shoulder, cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • White Pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 egg, beaten
  • 40g potato starch or cornflour (either works fine)

For the sauce

  • 35g vinegar
  • 55g granulated sugar
  • 25g ketchup
  • 5g tomato puree
  • 10g Worcester sauce
  • 1 tsp potato starch or cornflour (either works fine), to add into sauce before you cook with it

Note: The sauce will be red but not bright red like the takeaways, as they will probably use food colouring to get that colour.

For the dish

  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 pineapple ring
  • 1/2 small onion, cut into chunks
  • 1/4 red pepper, cut into chunks
  • 1/4 green pepper, cut into chunks

Preparation

1

Heat the oil in the pan on medium-high heat whilst you prepare everything else.

2

Prepare the vegetables for the dish.

3

Prepare the pork. Cut into 1 inch cubes. Season the meat with salt and sprinkle of white pepper. Pour half a beaten egg in and coat the pork pieces. Then mix in the potato starch (or cornflour) and coat the pieces again.

Ready? Let's cook!

1

To make the sweet and sour sauce: In a saucepan pour the vinegar and add the granulated sugar in, heat these up on a low heat until the sugar dissolves.

2

Add the ketchup, tomato puree and Worcester sauce and mix. Put this to one side as the sauce is now complete and ready.

3

Turn the oil to low heat. Take your chicken pieces and place them individually into the oil. Move them around, with a wooden spatula or wooden chopsticks, so they don't stick to each other. Fry them for 3 minutes.

4

When the pork pieces start to float, turn the heat to high and fry for an extra 1 minute. Use a slotted spoon and take the pieces out onto a plate and leave on the side for now.

5

To put the dish together. Heat wok on high heat. Add 1 tbsp vegetable oil.

6

Add in peppers , onion and pineapple and fry for 1 minute.

7

Take the sauce and add in 1 tsp of potato starch (or cornflour) and mix in. Add sauce to the pan and cook for 1 minute.

8

Add pork pieces to the pan and stir everything together. Once everything is coated with sauce, it is ready to serve.
