This Sweet and Sour Pork Recipe is all that you need to make a good Sweet and Sour Pork dish. It is simple, straightforward, and easy to follow. The result is absolutely delicious. You should try it for yourself.
I started by preparing the pork. These were sliced into serving pieces and marinated in soy sauce. I also dredged it in flour or cornstarch and deep-fried until it turned golden brown and crisp.
Making sweet and sour sauce is easier than you think. It is composed of sugar, vinegar, and ketchup. The sauce provides flavor to the entire dish. I also added vegetables such as bell pepper, carrots, and red onions.
This has always been my go to recipe if I want to make a basic version of the dish. Aside from having that authentic taste, I find the texture really appealing. Feel free to adjust the recipe according to your preference.
