How To Make Sweet And Sour Pork

All over the world, sweet and sour pork is one of the famous Chinese dishes. The dish is made from crunchy deep deep-fried battered tender pork pieces blanketed in a rich sweet and tangy sauce. Many who fail to achieve the perfectly balanced sauce resort to pre-mixed or bottled sweet and sour sauces, which may contain preservatives. If you’re one of them, then this recipe is all you’ll need. The use of rice wine vinegar and pineapple juice in this recipe creates a sauce that is not too sour. This dish is perfect for hot steaming rice.


This recipe takes about 20 minutes to make. Serves 2 to 3.

• 250 grams of diced pork
• 2 cups of cooking oil

• ¼ cup of all-purpose flour
• ¼ cup of cornstarch
• 1 egg
• 2 tbsp water
• ½ tsp salt

Sweet and Sour Sauce:
• ¼ cup diced onion
• ¼ cup diced red and green bell pepper
• 2 tbsp tomato ketchup
• 1 tsp cornstarch dissolved in 2 tbsp rice wine vinegar
• ¼ cup pineapple chunks
• 2 tbsp pineapple juice
• 2 tbsp white sugar
• 2 tbsp water


In a bowl whisk together flour, cornstarch, egg, salt, and water until you get a smooth batter.
Add the pork cubes into the batter and mix well.
Heat oil in a pan over medium-high heat until the temperature of the oil reaches 130°C.
Carefully drop each pork cube into the oil.
Fry for 3 to 4 minutes or until golden brown.
Place the fried pork pieces on a wire rack while you prepare the sauce.
Heat a pan over medium heat.
Sauté onions and bell peppers for 1 minute.
Add tomato ketchup, slurry, pineapple chunks, pineapple juice, white sugar, and water.
Stir well and let the sauce simmer for about 2 to 3 minutes.
Place the pork cubes in a large bowl.
Pour in the sweet and sour sauce.
Mix well, then transfer to a serving dish.

Ideas And Tips:

For the frying oil, you can use peanut oil, corn oil, soybean oil, sunflower oil, safflower oil, grapeseed oil or vegetable oil.

Aside from pork, you can use chicken, beef, fish or shrimp.

You can substitute white sugar with 1 ½ tbsp of honey or maple syrup.

You can substitute rice wine vinegar with sherry vinegar, white wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar.
