Sweet and Sour Pork III image

My husband's grandmother was Chinese. She taught me this one. This is the way Gramma made Sweet and Sour all her life (she died 6 years ago at age 94). The secret is apple cider vinegar.

Sweet and Sour Pork image

Recipe video above. The best ever Sweet and Sour Pork recipe is loaded with tricks the Chinese have been using for centuries: double dredgeand double fry for extra crispy, cornflour instead of flour, economical pork used for juiciness, but tenderised with baking soda so you'd swear they're pricey chops, and a sauce that's not sickeningly sweet. Don't let the list of ingredients daunt you. There's a lot of repeat ingredients!OVEN option provided in notes. Because sometimes, you just have to....

Number Of Ingredients 26

400g/14oz pork scotch roast (aka pork neck, collar butt) or shoulder / butt, (cut into 2cm / 4/5" cubes (Note 1))
1/2 onion (, finely grated (Note 2a))
1 tsp garlic (, finely grated (Note 2a))
1 tsp ginger (, finely grated (Note 2a))
3/8 tsp baking soda (bi-carb) ((Note 2b))
2 tsp cornflour/cornstarch
2 tbsp light soy sauce (, or all purpose (Note 3))
5 tbsp cornflour/cornstarch ( - for mixing in)
1/2 cup cornflour/cornstarch ( - for Coating)
2 - 3 cups vegetable or canola oil
1/3 cup white sugar
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar ((or 1/4 cup normal white vinegar))
3 tbsp pineapple juice ((from a 227g/8oz can pineapple pieces in juice, preferably no added sugar, Note 4))
3 tbsp ketchup ((or Aussie tomato sauce))
1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp soy sauce (, light)
1 tsp Oyster Sauce ((Note 5))
4 tsp cornflour/corn starch
1/2 cup water
1 tbsp oil
1 garlic clove (, finely chopped)
2 tsp ginger (, finely chopped)
1 onion ((medium), cut into 2.5cm/ 1" cubes (brown, white, yellow))
1/2 red capsicum/bell pepper ((large), cut into 2.5cm / 1" cubes)
1/2 green capsicum/bell pepper ((large), cut into 2.5cm / 1" cubes)
1 cup pineapple pieces ((from the can of pineapple under Sauce))


  • Mix Pork with Marinade. Marinade 18 to 24 hours. (See Note 1 for marinating time for other cuts)
  • Rack & warm oven: Preheat oven to 80°C/175°F and place rack on tray - to keep pork warm.
  • Sauce: Place all Sauce ingredients EXCEPT water in a large jug or small bowl. Mix until combined, then mix in water.
  • Be Stir Fry Ready: Have all ingredients lined up, ready to toss in. After Fry #2, things move quickly.
  • Coating #1: Mix 5 tablespoons cornflour into the pork and leave for 5 minutes. At first, it will be white from the cornflour, but after a while it will sweat and make the cornflour (mostly / partially) wet, and will be sticky (this is key for coating to stick).
  • Coating #2: Spread 1/2 cup cornflour in a shallow bowl. Coat pork, shaking off excess, and pile onto a plate.
  • Reserve cornflour in case you need to dust again just prior to frying. Pork should be at least half white when you put it into the oil (if not, just sprinkle with reserved cornflour).
  • Heat oil: Pour enough oil into a large saucepan or small pot so it's 2.5cm / 1" deep. Heat to 180°C/350°F (or until pork immediately starts sizzling when you dip it in).
  • Fry #1: Cook pork in batches, being sure not to crowd the pot, for 3 minutes until golden. Drain on rack. This step is just to cook the pork. It takes me 4 batches.
  • Fry #2: Turn the stove up slightly and heat oil to 200°C/390°F. Starting with the coolest pork, add half the pork (you can crowd the pot) and cook for 1 1/2 minutes, or until pork is deep golden brown and crispy. Transfer to rack, repeat with remaining pork - I do 2 batches.
  • Keep warm in oven.
  • Heat oil in a very large skillet over high heat.
  • Add garlic, ginger and onion, stir for 1 1/2 minutes. Add capsicum and stir for 2 minutes.
  • Add Sauce & pinapple, then let it come to a rapid simmer. Simmer for 2 minutes until it thickens - when you drag the spoon across the base, a path should briefly appear (see video at 1 min 53 s).
  • 10 second toss: Add pork, then QUICKLY toss to coat - aim for 10 seconds!
  • Serve asap! Pour onto serving plate, serve immediately! Will stay crispy for around 5 minutes then starts softening but still has a solid coating. This is just the reality of Sweet and Sour Pork, even at restaurants!

Provided by John Torode

Categories     Dinner, Main course, Supper

Time 1h

Number Of Ingredients 26

1 pork fillet (about 500g), trimmed and cut into 3cm chunks
sunflower or vegetable oil, for deep-frying
cooked rice or noodles, to serve
1 tbsp light soy sauce
2 tbsp shoaxing rice wine or dry sherry
1 garlic clove, grated
thumb-sized piece ginger, grated
50g cornflour
½ tsp salt
1 tsp ground white pepper
2 tsp celery salt
2 tsp caster sugar
1 tbsp sunflower oil
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
thumb-sized piece ginger, chopped
1 green or red pepper, roughly chopped
2 tbsp tomato ketchup
4 tbsp rice vinegar
1 tsp sesame oil
2 tbsp light soy sauce
1 tbsp soft brown sugar
300g can pineapple chunks
1 tbsp sesame seeds
100g rice flour
100g cornflour
1 tsp baking powder


  • Mix the pork with the marinade ingredients and leave to sit for at least 15 mins, or chill for a few hours. In a separate bowl, mix all the coating ingredients. Drain any excess liquid off the pork and toss the pork in the seasoned coating. Can be done 1 hr ahead.
  • To make the sauce, heat the oil in a shallow saucepan and gently fry the garlic, ginger and peppers until just starting to soften. Now drop in all the rest of the ingredients except the sesame seeds. Bring everything to the boil and cook for a few mins until thickened, then take off the heat. To make the batter, whisk the flours and baking powder together with 200ml water to a smooth paste.
  • Heat the oil in a deep-fat fryer, large saucepan or a wok to 180C or until a drop of batter sizzles and browns in 20 secs. Dip the marinated pork in the batter mix (do it in two or three batches) and let any excess drip off. Fry the pork in batches for about 5-6 mins or until golden. Remove and drain on kitchen paper until all the batches are done. Make sure you bring the oil back to the correct temperature between each batch. Coat the crispy pork in the sauce, then sprinkle over the sesame seeds, coriander and serve with rice or noodles.

Sweet and Sour Pork image

At Mamahuhu, a Chinese takeout restaurant in San Francisco, a sense of history and appreciation for American Chinese cuisine is applied to a few classics. Mining historical Cantonese sweet-and-sour dish recipes for inspiration, Brandon Jew, a founder of the restaurant, and Noah Kopito, the head chef, created a sauce that incorporates pineapple, honey and dried hawthorn berries, which impart an earthy depth of flavor. The chefs use house-fermented Fresno chiles for a hint of heat, but a dab of commercially available sambal oelek will do. This dish can be made with chicken or cauliflower instead of pork; just skip the marinade if using cauliflower.

Time 2h45m

Yield 4 servings

Number Of Ingredients 29

3/4 pound boneless pork shoulder, cut into 1 1/4-inch chunks
3 tablespoons Shaoxing rice wine
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
2 tablespoons neutral oil, such as rice bran or canola
2 teaspoons minced ginger
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 1/2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 1/4 cups rice vinegar
1 cup pineapple juice
3/4 cup honey
1 tablespoon dried hawthorn berries (can be purchased in Asian groceries or online)
2 teaspoons sambal oelek
1/4 teaspoon five-spice powder
1/2 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 quart neutral oil, such as rice bran, for deep-frying
1 bell pepper (any color), cut into 1-inch pieces
1/2 medium yellow onion, cut into 1-inch pieces
8 ounces fresh pineapple, cut into 1-inch pieces (about 1 cup)
Pinch of salt
Steamed rice, for serving
1/3 cup sweet rice flour (preferably Mochiko brand)
1/3 cup cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
1/8 teaspoon salt


  • Prepare the pork: Combine the pork with all the marinade ingredients, mixing well. Cover and chill for at least 2 hours, or overnight.
  • Make the sweet and sour sauce: Heat the oil, ginger and garlic in a medium saucepan over low heat until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Stir in the tomato paste and cook for another minute, stirring. Add the rice vinegar, pineapple juice, honey, hawthorn berries, sambal oelek and five-spice powder; stir to combine while bringing to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer, uncovered, for 15 minutes. Strain the sauce through a fine-mesh sieve and discard the solids; return to the saucepan.
  • Reduce the sauce to about 1 ¾ cups over medium-high heat, uncovered, about 5 minutes. Season with ½ teaspoon salt, adding more as desired.
  • In a small bowl, combine cornstarch with 2 tablespoons water. Bring the sauce up to a boil again, then stir in the cornstarch slurry. Stir as it thickens and bubbles, about 1 minute, then remove from heat. (Note: This sauce recipe may produce more than needed for your pork stir-fry; use as much as you desire and the rest can be saved for another use, such as a dipping sauce for crab rangoon.)
  • Prepare to deep-fry: In a large wok (or deep skillet), heat the quart of oil to 350 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients for the batter; add ½ cup water and whisk to combine. Drain any excess liquid from the marinated pork and discard. Working quickly in two batches, carefully dip each piece of pork into the batter one at a time, shaking off any excess, and drop into the oil. Fry the first batch of pork until golden brown, about 6 to 7 minutes. Using a spider or slotted spoon, transfer the fried pork to a wire rack-lined baking sheet to drain. Repeat with the remaining pork, mixing the batter thoroughly before coating the meat. After frying, carefully discard the oil, reserving 1 tablespoon.
  • Return the reserved 1 tablespoon of oil to the wok or pan and heat over high. Once the oil is popping, about 1 minute, add the bell pepper, onion, pineapple and a pinch of salt. Stir-fry for 1 to 2 minutes, until the vegetables are lightly charred in spots.
  • Scrape the vegetables into a large bowl and toss with the fried pork and enough sweet and sour sauce to coat (about 1 to 1 ½ cups). Arrange on a serving dish and serve with steamed rice.


Sweet and Sour Pork image

Sweet and sour are two of the five flavors of classical Chinese cooking (along with salty, pungent, and bitter). I like this version of the crispy pork recipe with fresh pineapple.

Yield Serves 4 as part of a multicourse meal

Number Of Ingredients 19

2 large eggs, beaten
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 pound boneless pork loin, cut into1-inch pieces
3 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons ketchup
2 tablespoons fresh pineapple juice, or juice from the canned pineapple, or substitute orange juice
1 1/2 tablespoons cider vinegar
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 tablespoons sugar
2 cups peanut or vegetable oil for frying, plus 1 tablespoon for stir-frying
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
1 cup fresh or canned bite-size pineapple chunks
Special equipment
Instant-read oil thermometer


  • 1. Prepare the batter: In a medium bowl, stir together the eggs, cornstarch, and flour. The batter should be liquidy enough to coat the pork. If the batter looks too dry, add 1 to 2 tablespoons of water and stir again. Add the pork and stir gently to coat. Let stand at room temperature for 10 minutes.
  • 2. Prepare the sauce: In a small bowl, stir together the water, ketchup, pineapple juice, cider vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, and sugar until the sugar is dissolved. Set aside.
  • 3. Heat the peanut oil in a wok until it registers 350°F on an instant-read oil thermometer. Working in 2 or 3 batches, add the first batch of pork cubes and fry until golden brown on the outside and cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes. Remove the pork with a slotted spoon and drain on a plate lined with paper towels. Remove any excess bits of batter from the oil with a slotted spoon or fine-mesh strainer. Continue frying the rest of the pork.
  • 4. Transfer the oil to a heat-proof container. (It will take about 1 hour to fully cool, after which you can transfer it to a container with a tight lid to dispose of it.) Wipe up any food remains in the wok with paper towels, being careful not to touch the metal directly with your hands.
  • 5. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil in the wok or a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and ginger and stir-fry until just aromatic, about 20 seconds. Add the pineapple and the sauce and stir to coat the vegetables. Let the sauce simmer for 2 to 3 minutes to allow the pineapple to become tender (about 1 minute for canned pineapple). Return pork to the wok and toss until well coated with the sauce. Transfer to a plate and serve.
