Easy Chinese Recipes – Sweet and Sour Pork
By Justina Lee
Having been in the restaurant business for more than 12 years, I noticed the favorite
dish for Chinese food lovers is sweet and sour pork. Sweet and Sour Pork is commonly
found on the menu of any Chinese restaurant across the globe and in actual fact,
fairly easy to prepare at home.
The secret to a delicious sweet and sour pork lies in its sauce. The sauce should
deliver a nice balance of sweetness from sugar and sourness from tangy ketchup.
Today, I'm going to show you how to create that perfect sauce so that your sweet
and sour pork is comparable to any restaurant's without the MSG.
