This Chinese Sweet and sour pork recipe is a treat! pork pieces in batter, fried twice for extra crispiness! The slightly tangy sauce, sweet tickle the taste buds. A simple recipe that can be prepared in advance, to finish at the last second.
First I want to clarify a point on one of the ingredients: ketchup. For critics (! I can understand) of American sauce, I just want to remind the ketchup ingredients: sugar, tomatoes, vinegar. Exactly what is sought in this recipe, sweet and acid! And during one of my trips to Canton I inquired about the recipe for this pork, well that is equivalent to the ketchup sauce they use, or a tomato paste which is added in any way vinegar and sugar. Good recipe !!
If the recipe in advance is desired to prepare, I suggest cooking the sauce, and start the first cooking pork fritters. Then at the last second, finish with the second frying and pour sauce to coat everything!
Start by cutting the roast pork into pieces of a size suitable for bites. Pour the clear soy sauce, Chinese wine, powder 5 spice, baking soda and cornstarch. Let cool at least one hour.
Pour all the sauce ingredients except the cornstarch and water.
Add vegetables, peppers, onions and pineapple. Put on low heat for ten minutes just to cook the onion and peppers. So you can cook a little more or a little less.
Add to the end of these 10 minutes, the cornflour and 50g of water if the sauce thickens too much.
Cook one minute and stop the fire.
Prepare the batter for pork. Combine flour, cornstarch, egg white.
Add hot water gradually to obtain a smooth paste. Too dry or too wet.
Pour this batter over pork.
Heat oil in a wok or saucepan. When the oil is hot, add the pork pieces one by one. Do not put too much pork pan simultaneously. Cook two or three times!
Turn pieces of browned on all sides.
Set aside each time on a paper towel while the other pieces cook.
Once everything is cooked, allow the oil to warm up a little and then add all at once. We will fry again to make the extra-crispy pork !! Yum!
Drain the oil from the wok into another container (an empty pan) and put the fried pork pieces into the wok, pour over donuts sweet and sour sauce.
Cook just to warm up the sauce. Serve immediately with rice.
