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.


Sweet and Sour Pork Recipe

(serves 4)



1 pound pork tenderloin, cut into cubes

1 tablespoon light soy salt

1 teaspoon ground pepper

2 cups plain lour

½ cup water

1 egg

oil for deep-frying

½ cup tomato ketchup

½ cup chili sauce

1 teaspoon plum sauce

3 tablespoons sugar

1 carrot, peeled and sliced

1 onion, cut into quarters

½ green pepper, sliced

½ red pepper, sliced

1 small can pineapple chunks, drained


How to make sweet and sour pork

In a bowl, mix the flour, water and egg. Mix until well blended.

Heat oil in a wok until very hot dip each piece of pork into the batter and fry until light brown. Remove and drained.
