Sweet and Sour Pork

I have shared a pork recipe- which was the thai style of making sweet and sour pork. This is the chinese style, where the pork is fried first in a batter before adding to the sweet and sour sauce.

Ingredients:
Batter for pork:
200 g pork cubed
1 egg white
1 teaspoon shao xing wine
1 teaspoon soya sauce
salt and pepper
1 tbs cornflour

1. Season pork cubes with shaoxing wine, soya sauce, salt and pepper for 30 mins.
2. Add egg white and stir.
3. Take each cube with a chopstick, stir in cornflour to coat before frying. Set aside the pork fritters to drain on kitchen paper.

Sauce:
1 red onion sliced
1/2 clove garlic minced
3 tbs tomato sauce
1 tbs vinegar
1 tbs sugar
1 teaspoon chilli sauce
1 teaspoon soya sauce
salt and pepper for seasoning.
(you can add pineapple but I find that too sweet and substituted with green snap peas)
1 tomato wedged

1. Heat oil in pot and fry onion and garlic. Add 1/2 cup water.
2. Add all the seasonings and simmer until thickened. (20 mins)
3. Add vegetables and cook for a further 5 minutes.
3. Add pork cubes to sauce and serve with white rice.
