Sweet and Sour Pork Recipe

This Sweet and Sour Pork Recipe is all that you need to make a good Sweet and Sour Pork dish. It is made-up of pork sliced into serving pieces that were marinated and dredged in flour or cornstarch and then deep-fried until golden and crisp.

The sweet and sour sauce is made from brown sugar, rice vinegar, and ketchup gives life to the dish. Vegetables such as bell pepper, carrots, and red onions are also used to add flavor and make this dish more exquisite. This Sweet and Sour Pork Recipe does not say something about the sauce, but we have it linked for your convenience.
